Learn to play the Blues. This is a very simple statement but, in our humble opinion, it is one of the best ways to learn the guitar. Why do we hold that opinion? Well the Blues underpins most modern music. From rock and heavy metal to RnB and funk all can trace their routes back to blues. Learn to play the blues and you can easily move from one music genre to another. There are many instructional programs out their to help you learn to play bluesbut we think we have found one that is a cut above the rest BluesJamSession.
First of all, BluesJamSession has a very passionate, dedicated and experienced owner.
Peter Morales has certainly put in tons of effort in creating what we believe is the “Ultimate Blues Guitar Package”. It consists of 60 blues backing tracks in every style with video lessons and improvisation guides.
We think this is extremely important because we have heard plenty of midi-sounding free jam tracks on other sites that are pretty low quality. Some were downright cheesy sounding while others do not come with video lessons or instructions (scales, chords, tips, etc).
So what do you get with BluesJamSession.
The package consists of:
- Over 60 blues backing tracks in every tempo & styles.
- Video lessons, guides, chords and scale sheets
- Step by step instructions guiding you how to improvise.
- Great for both electric, acoustic guitar and even wind instruments
In our opinion, it doesn’t matter at all if you’re beginner who is not proficient in improvisation as Peter Morales has provided tons of tutorials to guide you along.
The instructions are clear and concise, they are straightforward and extremely easy to follow. Even a complete beginner is able to master improvisations and techniques within minutes by following the videos!
Furthermore, the jam tracks cover a wide range of genres, styles, tempo, length for all musicians. Even if you play wind instruments, this package would be suitable for you!
Another thing worthwhile mentioning is that BluesJamSession comes backed with fantastic customer support. We tried this out with some questions of our own and recieved very comprehensive and professional replies extremly promptly.
We believe in putting forward a balanced review so here’s the negative part.
We feel that the members area has a large number of downloadable files and some do take quite long to download due to their size. However, having said that this is completely understandable as the tracks are of a very high quality so it is worth perservering. To circumvent this problem you can opt for the 2 CD physical edition in the members area.
The big question is whether we think BluesJamSession is a worthwhile investment?
Honestly, we haven’t seen any other blues jam package that is as comprehensive and that’s available at such a low price. Have you?
The quality of the jam tracks and videos are probably among the best that we’ve seen both in terms of the professionalism of production and the sheer variety of backing tracks on offer. For every single style of blues they have actually prepared a few different tempo/length backingtracks.
We seriously recommend that you give it a try now and for a limited time they are offering a 50% discount on the listed price.
