Guitar Techniques - - Talkback -

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).
