Ninebuzz software has a healthy collection of Guitar Jam Track apps available for various prices ranging from free to $4.99, with the latter amount representing their full universal version that contains the collection of all the separate apps in one. This alone is a nice approach since it gives you, the consumer, a number of options to choose from without being forced to pay for certain apps you don't want. All the apps are laid out the same and are basically a collection of backing tracks and chord/scale charts that accompany the backing tracks. Apps like this require a certain amount of discipline in order to be beneficial. There are no videos to follow along with and it's basically up to you as a player to do your due diligence and learn the scales for each of the backing tracks, but if you muscle through it can be a rewarding learning experience. The Guitar Jam Track apps have a simple, barebones interface that won't steer you wrong. It's nice to have the option to switch between the note charts while the backing track continues to play. This allows you to dive right in without having to really having to commit the scales to memory, however, you must be sure to change your iDevice's settings to keep iPhone/iPad screen from going dark while you are jamming away, unless you want to reach away from your guitar to tap the screen. The backing tracks are nothing incredibly fancy, but they are not supposed to be. They serve a purpose of backing up you, the player, while you learn to shine. Each app features a backing track for each key (A-G) In minor and major as well as different progressions to allow the player to experiment with different styles and feels. It really is a great way to practice and learn to improvise. Hopefully the developer will address the blackout issue in a future update so you don't have to make adjustments in your Settings app each time you want to use this one.

This app is the key for beginner and intermediate guitarists to become accustomed to scales and being able to use them with chords. This app completely opens up the ability of what is possible on guitar especially when a band is not available to do this with. this app is great for practice to become greater with jamming and also warming up before gigs. I highly recommend this app to all guitarists who want to excel and become greater -thank you so much for this app"

2. Tap 'Chords' to see what chords are being played (rhythm)
3. Tap 'Scales' to see the scale charts for that key (lead)

CHANGE THE STYLE AT ANY TIME!

PRACTICE TIPS:
Learn the chord progression for each track, and then jump over to practicing scales. Guess what? There are only 5 'shapes' of a scale to memorize! Once you know them up and down, learn where they start for each key. Soon, you'll be able to solo like a pro.

TIPS FOR THE SCALE CHARTS:
- Black dots are regular notes.
- Red dots are 'root notes'. These are notes of the key you are in.
- Blue dots are 'passing notes'. Including these notes puts you in a Blues mode.
