Jam Tracks

These are not the usual tracks where you’ll ‘air guitar’ the hit of the moment or the classic riffs of the past times. These are tools to improve your skills and your knowledge of scales, modes or whatever you are practicing. It’s a concept I have been taught a long time ago and I found really beneficial, so I freshened up the samples giving it a more contemporary sound to pass them on to you.  I advise using a good set of speakers or a good set of headphones where you’ll be able to hear the bass clearly,  as it is a key element of these tracks.

Watch the video below to learn how to use these  tracks.

And these are the 12 tracks – About 5min each – Good Luck!
