JAM TRACK TAB
Is it possible to include the written music for your jam tracks, even if it was a PDF on the disk if you couldn’t fit into the mag? There have been some real great accompaniments over time. I’m not the greatest transposer by ear, although you would undoubtedly say I should develop that skill by using these! I’ve often thought when listening to them, “I’d like to be able play and practise that...” as they are very varied and could be used to back a variety of music genres. By the way, I’ve been buying and reading the mag since 1999. David Newman, Tasmania At the moment, unfortunately we just don’t have the resources to do that, David. The backing tracks are made up and played on the spot (mostly by me!) and no music is ever written down. We should always make sure that the chords are written out (or spelled out if they are a bit weird) in the jam track notes at the front of the magazine, though, as that would certainly help. Also we are desperately short of jam tracks as they take a lot of time to do and we have no budget for creating them. We are trying to sort something, however, and if things work out there’s a slim chance that we could even tab them too (no promises though).
