Download New Jam Packs!
This student portal offers 12 Jam Packs – 1 for each major key. Jam Packs are exercises designed around a jam track, some chord diagrams and guitar tab. To get started click on the jam pack link for any key. Most of the jam packs contain identical material (just in a different key).
How Jam Packs Relate to this Course
This course is really geared towards ALL guitarists (at all levels) who want a general understanding of music theory and what/how to practice and get better. One of the main topics I focus on with my private students is to always *play* music – AS PRACTICE! This means that it is better to play music than to just run scales or arpeggios until your fingers get numb.
So, my students often wonder… “What should I pratice?” Well, that is where these Jam Packs come in. Each jam pack presents you with the major scale guitar tab, chord scale diagrams and an in-key jam track that you can play against (usually looping it on your computer or mobile device). Head over to an individual jam pack page to learn more about how to use them… but, now you know what they’re all about!
