Guitarjamz is a full feature online guitar lessons site. The instructor, Marty
Schwartz, leads you through a series of video lessons that are done in a fun and friendly manner
and he keeps them short and to the point. He is also a bit of a character which helps keep you
focused on his instruction. A real bonus is that Marty seems to truly enjoy the instrument.
Guitarjamz.com has no shortage of online guitar lessons available to registered students.
For example the beginner guitar lessons include a set of over forty videos. The longest one comes
in at less than twenty minutes. Complementing these beginner guitar lessons are a series of videos
on chords and easy songs. Well over a hundred lessons just for beginners!
Other series of guitar lessons include a Blues program, Licks, Music
Theory, Master Classes and Country. Occasionally, Marty will bring in
special guests to lead a guitar lesson or particular concept.
Where Marty really excels is with his Blues guitar lessons. He knows the form
extremely well, and is an excellent player. Marty spent several years touring before settling down
to raise a family according to his biography.
Guitarjamz’s Music Theory section covers scales, and the CAGED system of
guitar chords. It also includes a primer on how to write songs for the guitar.
The online guitar lessons are supplemented with pdf style books and they are pretty good as
well. If you are into his style of teaching, and it is a particular style, you might consider
buying the DVDs instead of continuing with a monthly subscription. At some point, especially when
he is offering specials, it’s worthwhile simply to buy the lessons out-right in this format.
The site itself is well organized and easy to navigate. It has a very simple log-in page, and an
intuitive navigation system. You will find the online guitar lessons you want with a click or two
of the mouse. If and when you are ready to buy some DVD lessons, you will always find them at the
bottom of your screen.
Beginner to Intermediate
Although Marty does have an absolute beginners program for his subscribers, guitarists with some
experience can browse his many lessons, looking for a particular topic to learn or solidify a
technique or playing style.
The format for guitar lessons is mainly online videos. Supplementary materials include
downloadable pdfs that document the lessons in written format with diagrams.
You can also order different DVD programs that specialize in particular styles.
Marty's beginner guitar program focuses on the fundamentals for any style of guitar playing.
During these lessons he introduces Folk, Rock, and Blues styles. Once
you complete his fundamental lessons you can dive into Blues and Country guitar
in more detail.
Both acoustic and electric guitar players will benefit from Marty's lessons. If you have both
even the better, as he does like to switch around his instruments a bit. And why not? Sometimes a
particular lesson just works well on an electric guitar.
Guitarjamz’s online guitar lessons are subscription based and offer several payment
options to choose from. The longer the subscription period, the lower the monthly price works out
to be with prices starting at $29.00 per month. You may want to sign up for the three day free
guitar lessons first. Marty confidently gives you access to all the lessons and supplements on the
site during this trial period, and emails you a link to a new lesson everyday.

This guitar course is great for learning basic guitar and truly excels in its course studies for
Blues and Country guitar music. Overall, we recommend Guitarjamz's online guitar lessons
particularly if you're interested in learning Blues or Country guitar.
Note: The only thing we found lacking in the site was a user forum of some
kind. Feedback on your progress is tricky to get when you are learning by yourself and a simple
forum or online chat for users can help mitigate this problem.
