TIP! There is nothing like playing with other musicians! But the next best thing is playing with a recording of a band!
Always work with the jam tracks provided with your lessons. They are not only there because it is more fun to play with jam tracks, but most of the time provide you with important information like rhythmic feel and harmonic content that help you make sense out of what you are working on. Number one thing - always listen to what everyone else in your band is doing! It is so important to play WITH the band and not just OVER the band - and in order to do that you have to get used to listening. Playing with Jam Tracks is a great way to practice this!
