Posted by Michael Mueller on August 31, 2011 at 9:09 AM
Since GuitarInstructor.com launched in late 2007, our selection of audio play-along jam tracks has grown to over 1,200 titles. Although our jam tracks are professionally recorded, mixed, and engineered with amazing sound-alike results, you, our users, expressed to us that it was too cumbersome to be tethered to a computer whenever you wanted to jam. And you were right.
So, as of last week, you can now purchase any of our jam tracks in downloadable MP3 format, so that you can burn them to a rehearsal CD or load them onto your iPod for maximum portability and utility.
What if you've already purchased our jam tracks in WMA or streaming Flash format? No worries. Go into your digital content library in your GuitarInstructor.com account, and you'll find an MP3 Download option for all existing tracks in your library.
If you haven't tried jamming with our play-along tracks yet, you won't believe what you're missing. Our audio tracks are painstakingly crafted to sound as close to the original recording as possible. It's the next best thing to having Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, or Ringo and Paul, or Double Trouble right there in the room with you. And with our "Minus Guitar" tracks, you step into the shoes of the all-time greats like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, and Eddie Van Halen, to name just a few.
