Great app! Sounds great, the jam tracks are excellent. This is just what I was looking for. A big variety of really good blues tracks in a number of styles that are all fun to play. Nothing lame in here. Totally worth the money. Easy to change keys and tempos. It’s a little bit hard remember which track you are playing after you select it - especially after you have played for awhile - because the name of the track is not visible when you are playing it. But the quality is nonetheless great. Well worth it.
Excellent Sound, Simple Interface, Soulful
Below is my original review. SINCE UPDATING iPHONE TO 10.1, APP PLAYS FOR 20 SECONDS THEN STOPS!!! PLEASE FIX!!! I need this app!!!!
30 years of playing, needed a way to knock the rust of my chops after a few years of not playing. This app sounds great, recordings have soul, tracks groove well, and many styles are covered. I'm first in line if ever more tracks are available for in app purch. Money very well spent!!! Thank you!!! Oh, consider making app Audiobus compatible.
Good tracks but...
These tracks are excellent, especially if you want to do slow blues. One problem: it only plays with headphones on. I want to play my guitar separate from my phone and have this as a backing track without headphones, but that's not an option. Shame.
