Amazing Jam Session - Three Random Guys Just Start Singing Together

Enjoy watching this extraordinary moment of music that brought people together. 

A street performer was outside a grocery store when a random stranger joins in. Surprisingly the stranger had a good voice, so the guitarist played along. That's when a third man noticed the jam session, and added the cherry on top...

The first stranger begins at 1:00, and the second joins in at 1:45

"No matter how hard we try to plan every detail of our life, the best moments are often the spontaneous ones. These guys dared to break from routine to join this complete stranger in song and they not only made their own days better, but all of ours better too. I'm glad someone was there to film and share with us, and I implore you to share with others too."- Quinn Hu

The guitarist's name is Jesse Rya. Please go like his Facebook page.

Guitar Education and Guitar Wheels Front Page News

You will be pleased to know that guitar education in the public school system and the Guitar Wheel were featured on front page news! Maywood Middle School of Corning, California, was so excited about the Guitar Wheels donated to their band class that the local newspaper featured the event in a front page story of the Corning Observer newspaper. We're very happy the article highlights the incredible job band teacher Dan Kinkle is doing in schools and the support his school district gives for music education.

This publicity was a direct result from a Facebook promotion Music Master Publishing ran in December 2011, in which we donated 300 Guitar Wheels to benefit and raise awareness for under privileged and deserving music education programs. Guitar and band teachers across the country are using Guitar Wheels as an educational aid to help students learn music theory.
