Free Blues Jam Track

The free blues jam track I promised you can be downloaded by right-clicking on the button below, and clicking "Save As" or "Save Target As" depending on your browser. You can also watch the video, above, as it has a scale pattern on-screen to help you. 

This particular jam track is in A minor, so you can use the A pentatonic minor scale to solo over it. If you like, hit play on the video below to hear the same track, but with the A pentatonic minor scale displayed on screen throughout the whole track.

Tip: if you hit the fullscreen button in the bottom right of the player you'll be able to see the notes better.

Watch your email for more tips on how to use this jam track in your practicing, and have fun with it!

As a Guitar instructor it is very Important to have other musical sources in my arsenal to teach and to also keep in practice. So the convenience of not having to make this type of rehearsal tool saves time and money. Again thanks for all your help.

Great track!
I think the C & the D labels on the G string in the diagram are supposed to be the other way around however =)

    jboettcher - October 28, 2014 Reply

    Yeah, thanks for catching that. I'll have to change it and re-upload the video. The notes are in the right place, just the labels are reversed on both the 3rd string and the 1st string.

I think I hear a lot of Bb in this track. If so,can you explain !!!!

    jboettcher - October 31, 2014 Reply

    Perhaps you're hearing the Eb passing note that is used quite a bit in the main riff? That's a commonly used passing note, between the IV and the V. However, quickly skipping through the track I didn't notice a Bb...

The labels of the notes are reversed on the G string, but otherwise, it's good to have the diagram. Thanks for providing this. It works with bass as well

Bob Mansfield - October 30, 2014 Reply

Some of the notes are in the wrong place. This should have been edited before
printing.

jboettcher - October 31, 2014 Reply

Thanks to all who pointed out the mixed up C and D notes in the diagram - the video is now fixed.

Jonathan,
Since high school I have been in pursuit of a greater knowledge of the Spanish Guitar; starting in the books of Nick Manoloff, the Mel Bay Chord System (Rhythm & Orchestral Guitar), and the Jazz Guitar Method by Ronny Lee. Also, the Beginning Lead Guitar Power Builder Video by Wolf Marshall, and needless to say, I have learned a lot, but, you sir - I can tell as I have just perused and downloaded your "Quick Guide To Understanding the Number System Of Music Theory On The Guitar - have finally brought to light the missing link I have been searching for 50 years; and now that I've found you, I'm sticking like glue. I'm convinced that with you, my eyes will be fully opened. Thank you for this wealth of insight and knowledge to students of the guitar.
Ernie Hines

I am seeking backing tracks with which to play my harmonica and of course improvise.
I would suppose guitar back tracks would be the trick.
Your suggestions and the costs . Might result in an 89 year old hitting the stage with
walker and chromatic harmonica.

    Hi George, yes, I would say that the tracks would work well for pretty much any solo-style instrument. So guitar, harmonica... you should be fine. You can learn more about what's included in the package at this link - right now we've got a special offer on so the prices are as good as they'll ever be. http://playguitar.com/courses/blues-tracks/

Well first of all have a very good new year to you all. Now after more 30 years I just picked up a guitar and when I was 14 or so I went to the con for a bit more than a year and just to learn the basics and major and minor scales and few cord progressions and did bar-rock music and J.S Back at the time. Now days I just wanna do blues and rock but finding it difficult comes to the so called TAB thing. Seams like everything is written for TAB and not for real sheet music. I am only starting to dig into it after 30 years so I need some pointers. I am also rusty comes to the world of IT and yet I was one around 20 years ago for TAFE for a good number of years. I am now a part time store man who wants to study IT now and along that study music here and there to satisfy the big gap of not having a family..... So I need all the Blues and Jazz scales written for sheet music and or do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-si-do etc and not the TAB thing unless it is explained to me as its a lot of the times every where along the neck of the guitar making it virtually impossible to work it out.!!!!!! Also the main cord progressions that would go with those blues and jazz scales.
Regards and thanks
Rob
ps: I only count with a few dollars here and there as I pay private rent and the part time job only gives me a few dollars. If can get pointers and how it all ticks for free would be ineradicable. My idea is to prepare a dissent repertoire and do some basking to help me with some of the bills.
Any way thanks regards and good music to you all.....
