ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
JAM ANY TIME YOU WANT TO

The Jam Along Blues CD is a fun learning tool that provides the opportunity to play along, or sing along, with clear, well-balanced backing tracks that have rock-steady time. With eleven instrumental blues progressions at your disposal, you can jam along any time you want to. These tracks can really help you get the feel of playing the blues, and make the time spent learning fun and easy.

JAM ALONG CDS ARE EASY TO USE

Simply play the CD in any standard audio CD player or computer CD drive, and jam along. There are no solos, vocals or melodies, just background tracks, so you can really stretch out. Each track lasts at least five or six minutes, so there is lots of solo time for you to try out new ideas and work on improving old ones.

BLUES IS A GREAT PLACE TO START

Blues is one of the foundations of American Music, and provides a foundation for an improvisor in many of the different styles you hear in today's music. Rock-and-Roll, Jazz, Bluegrass, Jump-Swing and many other music forms are saturated with blues harmony and melody.

Blues is easy to play for beginning musicians, and can provide a challenge to the most advanced performer. Jamming with the Blues Scale, the Minor Pentatonic Scale, and the Dorian Scale is immensely satisfying. At the same time, the most comprehensive collection of techniques can be applied, including the use of Modal Scales, Functional Harmony, and Jazz Line Techniques.

Blues is a fun style of music to jam to. The music is simple enough to use one scale for all of your melodic material, yet complex enough to use the most sophisticated line techniques to play harmonic solos.

The classic blues feel is the shuffle. This common dance rhythm is easy to dance and move to, and the backing tracks provided on the Jam Along Blues CD come with shuffles in a variety of tempos and keys to help you be ready for whatever comes your way in a jam session.

These music background tracks are at different speeds, with many at slower tempos. The slower tempos give players ample time to develop more complex ideas and work on more harmonic, or by-chord, approaches. Experience has shown that holding a slow beat without loosing the tempo or loosing focus is more challenging that it sounds, and is a professional skill.

The faster tempos challenge the chops and make for a good time in the process. Trap set players and bass players will benefit from keeping their shuffles and solos tight at high speeds. Guitarists, keyboardists and piano players, and comping horn players will all find demonstrations of ways to accompany the rhythm section and soloists at fast and slow speeds.
