jamtrackcentral.com is a website that not only offers jam tracks but also lead guitar recordings by an expanding roster of high profile guitarists. A lot of the material seems to be improvised by the players on the spot but there's certainly a few artists who also prepare some building blocks before actually recording their material. Either way, these tracks are a great opportunity to learn from fantastic guitar players around the world and to improve your lead guitar playing and soloing skills. Most of the material is suited for intermediate to advanced players but a handful of artists also offer tracks for novices. This thread will be a place to collect all tracks on CF that are available from JTC and can also serve as a platform for discussion about everything related to the website and their artists, as well as coordinating a possible JTC custom creation project. One of the things that I'm not sure about listing yet, is those JTC releases that present albums of their artists with full or partial transcriptions (like the ones that are already available from Guthrie Govan, i.e.), because they were not specifically produced for JTC and are not intended as learning material. It seems more reasonable to treat those as regular releases but I'm willing to discuss this. The list will be ordered alphabetically by the artists last name and also contain the name of the pack it belongs to, as well as the genre and difficulty information one can find on the website. It's split into three categories: tracks that are already released on CF and can be downloaded; tracks that are already in the process of being made into customs; tracks that are only planned and therefore reserved by a specific charter. Released will have links to the database entries and the name of the charter; WIP and Planned will also have the charters name, so all projects can be immediately associated with the appropriate person.

Hi guys, I think it's about time that I open up another big project because… :huh: well just because I can. B) I really got into Blues lately, more so than usual, and I thought to myself: well, where's all the good stuff? There really should be more great Blues and Blues Rock in RS. So I went online looking for tabs and songbooks of artists that would fit the bill. Along the way I discovered some great new musicians and bands that I didn't even knew before, so that's certainly a plus but I also found a lot of great tabs that I can use to get some of the most epic Blues and Blues Rock songs into the game. As usual the bass is either missing or wrong but that's something I can easily fix, thankfully, but the guitar, at least in most of the song books, is tabbed very accurately and something I can rely on heavily, which I do in fact, because I am happy if I can play at least a third of those crazy licks and riffs. :cry: Well, anyway. Below there's list with all the artists and the respective tracks I want to bring into RS but of course this is not final in any way. I may change my mind anytime of the day and if any of you are interested in doing one or the other, I'll be happy to give you all the materials I have and may support you with the bass tab. Also, if there's anything really good missing that you would like to see, then let me know. I'd love to find even more great artists and tracks to satisfy my bluesy longings. :lol: P.S.: I won't do the big three: Clapton, Hendrix and Vaughan because there's already quite a few of their tracks available and I actually prefer to bring lesser known or already forgotten blues masters into the game.

This is a practice track for the 12 Bar Blues and it's variations as described in it's Wikipedia page in the keys of C, E, and G. The backing track is a drum-only loop of the 12 Bar Blues example found here. There is a number of sections each representing a variation. in order they are: [*]Standard [*]Shuffle [*]Quick Change [*]Sevenths [*]Basic Jazz Blues Progression [*]Bebop [*]Minor (with 7ths) Standard, Shuffle, and Quick Change are easy and play quite nice together (and so does Sevenths.) Sevenths, and Minor are a little more challenging. Jazz and Bebop are full of chords most other styles of music never use and are full of unusual chords... some you don't even play as chord because they sound horrible, you play them as arpeggios. Each section has 3 phrases each 4 measures (bars) long. So every section is a self-contained 12 Bar Blues progression on it's own, and they mostly play nice going one into the other. The guitar is all chords, 1 every measure or change. You can play anything you want in between: keep strumming, tiny little fills, mix and match. The bass is just the tonic but with a hand-shape (like an arpeggio) for the current chord at every measure or change. Same deal as the guitar just hit your designated note at the right time all the in-between are up for grabs. If you know a little music theory you will notice C, E, G for the C Major chord. That's to say if C is the Root/Tonic, E is III, and G is V. As long as you keep C as the overall tone you don't have to play all sections in the same difficulty. For example you play the first 4 sections as C, C, G, C making it a simple AABA type song. While testing I found that I felt into trance mode and stop paying attention so I threw in different hand positions to try and keep it more interesting. Bassist don't have that in E or G, as I got tired of looking up different fingerings. Alright, I would like feed-back of what works and what doesn't as far as a practice track goes. Depending on how it goes I may add the other keys. Links: PC (The Only One Tested) Mac Xbox360 PS3 Hope it is alright to post this here.
