I am a thirty year old working professional. I can never imagine that I could learn how to play guitar without jamoramas help. For a person like me who spends most of his time at the office, it’s hard to take out time for guitar tuitions. It was as if jamorama was sent from above to help me out.

As a child I always used to fantasize about being a rock star someday. I used to get hypnotized by looking at people playing guitars. Unfortunately for me, my parents didn’t like it. They would never let me learn to play guitar. Since they thought it would disturb my focus from studies, as my father wanted me to be an engineer.

As time passed I got more and more occupied by studies. After I grew up work took most of the part of my focus. But regardless of all this the flame of learning to play guitar was sill present somewhere deep inside me. I had gone out camping with all my office colleagues and we were singing and dancing close to the camp fire. One of my friends named Jerry had brought his guitar along and was playing it so nicely. I never knew he could play such beautifully. On our way back I asked him about his talent and he said he just started playing it about six months ago.

I was astonished to learn that a person like Jerry can learn to play guitar so beautifully and that too in such a short period. It then when I came across Jamorama. Jerry highly recommended it for me. Initially I was not too sure about it, so I thought it would be better to go for a free trial. You won’t believe it but I ended up ordering a full product on the very same day.

Jamorama is in this business for past 6 years. And I think they are doing a wonderful job. Because a person like me, who had no knowledge about playing guitar what so ever can learn it so easily. And the best part is I didn’t have to go anywhere, I could do it by being at the comfort of my home. And another benefit is that I can go at my own desired pace, no rush at all. Of course since I didn’t go for a personal tuition, I saved a great deal of money that I could have spent paying the tuition fee.

You can master your guitar playing skills with the help of easy to use digital book format that Jamorama uses. And it doesn’t matter what time of day you want to do it, all you have to do is just download a lesson to your computer and start practicing. And the best part is that there are so many interactive jam tracks that are professionally recorded. And the video lessons are just awesome.

With Jamorama I can end my lesson whenever I want and just return and start from where I had left. This is such a blessing especially for a working professional like me, who seldom get much time in a day.

Today, it’s about nine months that I have been using Jamorama. I have made tremendous progress and been able to match the pace with my friend Jerry. All my other friends are amazed when they look at me playing that guitar. Thanks to Jamorama for teaching me all those tricky guitar skills, which I use so proudly. Jamorama teaches you almost all the major tricks that are impressive like, Legato, Vibranto, Bending, slide, Pull-offs and many more

Thank you, Jamorama for changing my life and adding so much joy to it.

Interesting habits that can make you into a great guitar player

I discovered this fun article on how to improve yourself for playing guiter. Very interesting read. Hope you will like this as i did :)

3 Easy Habits That Will Turn You Into A Great Acoustic Guitar Player

by Matt Lowen
If you are serious about becoming a better guitar player, then you need to start forming habits like these...
It's easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged nowadays by all the knowledge floating around out there.
I, for one, have spent countless hours trying to understand complex musical theory, practicing scales I'll never use, and trying to learn songs note-for note.
Although I can't claim all that work was a "waste of my time," I feel like I could have made my learning process much more efficient by focusing on a select few, very important things.
And I would like to share these things with you now so you don't have to learn them the hard way...
The 3 Simple Habits I Have Now That I Wish I Had 10 Years Ago
A musician has to be a creature of habit in order to do their job; unfortunately, many of the easier habits to pick up are bad ones.
You'll have to watch out for the booze, smokes, drugs, and all the other sex/drugs/rock&roll bad habits on your own, (there are better mentors than me for that stuff!)
However, in order to reach your dreams of becoming the rock-star, or the folk-troubadour, (or whatever you want to be) you know all about how important habits are.
All those hours spent tearing your fingertips raw, the frustration of learning how to play new chord formations, scales, tabs, notations, and of course, the inevitable bad gigs that you have to play through to learn, are all necessary habits that you teach yourself.
You have to work your ass off to get to the point where you can actually enjoy LEARNING guitar. And that's unavoidable and totally worth the effort. And it only happens through dedication and commitment to habit.
So, you already know you can do it, and, compared to that, there's virtually no struggle involved here because you don't have to get rid of any bad habits!
All you have to do, is start employing these 3 easy-to-follow habits TODAY and you will amaze yourself with how much you can learn and improve!
HABIT #1. "20 Minutes of Learning"
Yes, I'm serious about this. For 20 Minutes, once every day, you learn something new on your acoustic guitar.
You're not too busy. It's not too hard to find something to learn. There are no excuses.
Spend 5 minutes finding something, it can be a lesson on Youtube, a song on Youtube, something from one of the countless guitar magazines out there, you can learn a new song, a new riff, anything...
The only rule is you must do this EVERY DAY for 20 MINUTES ONLY! Set a timer on your phone/computer/alarmclock for 20 minutes and learn something. When the timer goes off, you're done. You can go longer if you want, but I don't recommend you do, because that creates a tendency to say to yourself "I did 40 minutes yesterday, so I can do 0 minutes today."
And this isn't noodling around watching South Park or Pawn Stars! You find something you couldn't do before the 20 minutes, and you learn it. That's all there is to it.
You will be AMAZED at how much you've learned after a week (and that will only have been 2 hours of practice!)
HABIT #2. "The Acoustic/Electric Guitar Divorce"
Even though my album cover is a picture of me with my trusty acoustic, I play electric all the time. I love the instrument. I love to play with effects and turn it up loud.
But I taught myself this habit long ago and I would never have improved if I didn't. I forced myself to admit that the electric guitar is NOT the acoustic guitar.
It is a different instrument and you have to treat it as such. Stuff you learn on electric is not going to work on an acoustic. I see it all the time with beginner/intermediate guitarists: they get out the old yamaha flattop and start hacksawing away with barre chords and downstroke rhythm patterns.
This is not how you play acoustic guitar! How do you play acoustic guitar? You treat it like one. You listen to bands that utilize the acoustic guitar properly. They can be old artists who use fingerpicking techniques like Mississippi John Hurt, legendary guitarists like Doc Watson or Bob Dylan who can teach you how to strum and use alternating bass notes, or new artists like Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes, or countless others.
You must separate the two instruments and create a mental habit of really listening to what the acoustic guitars are doing in your favorite recordings.
Do this and you will never run out of stuff to learn in your 20 minutes.
HABIT #3. "Use A Capo And Use It Properly"
It can be very difficult to form certain chords on acoustic guitar. This is why the capo was invented and it is probably the biggest difference-maker I can think of in differentiating between the good acoustic players and the great ones.
Yes, you've probably used it to change the key in order to help you sing a song easier. That's fine, but it's only the tip of the iceberg for maximizing your potential as a player.
You should be jamming with other people as frequently as possible and this is where you can really shine if you know how to use this tool. Start looking into it for your 20 minute daily practice sessions, but most importantly, you just need to know how much you can do with a capo.
Start thinking about it that way and you'll naturally start experimenting and you'll probably discover new stuff that you can show me sometime.
For now, I've got an awesome blog post with tips and tricks and video examples for using a capo on my website that I strongly recommend you check out here:
Enjoy music and happy learning! Get started on those habits today!
