I’ve put together a video briefly describing various ways you can use jam tracks to your advantage. I realised I often advise people to work with jam tracks but there’s not a lot of information out there on how to get the most out of them. Hopefully this goes some way to addressing that.
I cover practicing licks, timing, stamina, repetition, building up speed, songwriting, accompaniment, and playing for fun. Also included is some general advice and words of caution. The video description has links for good sources of jam tracks.
