BluesJamSession Review
First of all, BluesJamSession has a very passionate, dedicated and experienced owner.
Peter Morales had certainly put in tons of effort in creating what I call the "Ultimate Blues Guitar Package". It consists of 60 blues backing tracks in every style with video lessons and improvisation guides.
We think this is extremely important because we have heard plenty of midi-sounding free jam tracks on other sites that are pretty low quality. Some were downright cheesy sounding while others do not come with video lessons or instructions (scales, chords, tips, etc). You know what I mean if you’ve paid for those lousy tracks in the past.
Well fortunately, these flaws and mistakes are hardly be seen in BluesJamSession.

The BluesJamSession package consists of:
* Over 60 blues backing tracks in every tempo & styles.
* Video lessons, guides, chords and scale sheets
* Step by step instructions guiding you how to improvise
* Great for both electric, acoustic guitar and even wind instruments
In our opinion, it doesn’t matter at all if you’re beginner who is not proficient in improvisation as Peter Morales has provided tons of tutorials to guide you along.
The instructions are clear and concise, they are straightforward and extremely easy to follow. Even a complete beginner is able to master improvisations and techniques within minutes by following the videos!
Furthermore, the jam tracks covers a wide range of genres, styles, tempo, length for all musicians. Even if you play wind instruments, this package would be suitable for you...
Another thing worthwhile mention is that they have very good customer support- When we say ‘good’, we mean they are able to reply all your questions within minutes to an hour with full politeness.

here's my Guitar Review Conclusions ...
Is BluesJamSession a worthwhile investment?
Honestly, we haven’t seen any other blues jam package that is as comprehensive and that's available at such a low price. Have you?
The quality of the jam tracks and videos are probably among the best that I’ve seen… And yes, we have nearly missed out one of the most important parts- The varietiness of the tracks.
Speaking the truth, for every single style of blues they have actually prepared a few different tempo/length. Take a look at their track list.
We seriously recommend you to get it now for a limited time 50% discount because they are CERTAINLY increasing the price within days!

Question On: *How Much Hour should   I Practice the Guitar?*
It’s generally heard that the more time you give the more result you have. Standard practicing is recommended at a 30 minutes/day or 90 minutes a week. Many guitar learners would say that this is not much of enough practice time; they don’t feel the growth even after giving 1 hour.
I would say that this is because the right practice is not yet clear to them. Attend a guitarmonk session and you will know that how 30 minutes will be more than a student will be able to bear. It’s a workout indeed. I sometimes see that most students are not even compatible for more than 15 minutes workout. They need rest. This is job of your teacher, has to be professional enough to offer you practice regime. So let’s first absorb these 3 tips
Tip # 1 If you are a beginner, your first few months of practice should be able to grab your guitar for 5-10 minutes session anytime and whenever, and as many times as you can. Say to divide your session in 10 minutes. Pick in night, morning, lunch time. You are developing your finger dexterity so connection to your guitar as often and rest makes your finger adaptive to harder workout later. Crucial point is to develop finger stamina, assess finger state (soreness Vs pain) and practice with awareness. Take rest if it pains but when I say pain – see whether it’s normal stretching or just demand of relaxation? You have to make sure that it’s not overly tensed muscle due to wrong guitar or improper practice regime.
Tip # 2 Guitar learning is not a rat race or competition. Don’t compete to any one, just to yourself. Your fingers physical sensitivity, your mental receptivity is your individuality and start pillar. Don’t move astray from it else it will be unnatural. Be yourself and understand your development process. As a future learned guitarist, your playing will represent your individuality so why not pick it from the beginning?
Tip # 3 Some people take guitar practice time as an agenda of unwinding themselves from hectic schedule. This is undoubtedly great indeed and Infact one of the objective. But also note that you are yet building up your stamina, finger dexterity. So practice connectivity is crucial and rewarding. Once you have crossed a lot of steps and developed lots of skills, the practice is not same. So Note it that your practice changes with time.
2ndly, most working people are so busy enough that the above philosophy of unwinding themselves at right time basically becomes delay of practice.
So picking guitar for five or ten or 15 minutes here or there is not of a much effort but helps you in a “cumulative” effect of having gained development. So my advice is that you should pick both model of practicing, unwinding and remote playing of 5-10 minutes.
 "...holding a guitar not as an agenda, this is your guitar come-on, love it and hold it as many times, have fun with it, don’t count your smiles, just strum it, either before sleeping or take it at lunch time, and also place guitar at a position where you can find it quickly. Enjoy these 3 tips until I bring some more perspectives in practicing..."

*geetaRR*PRACTICING   'tips'

1 - Physical Organization

The guitar practice environment is as much (if not more) important than the activity itself. Practicing in the same room most of the time is the key.
The ideal is to have a dedicated "practice space" for your music.
The environment should contain every object you could use during guitar practice. For example :
  • Guitar (and amplifier if needed)
  • Music stand and guitar stand if needed
  • Tuner, metronome and patch chords
  • Guitar strap and picks
  • Timer or watch
  • CD/tape/vinyl player (and/or computer)
  • Albums you are currently transcribing from
  • Binder (with staff and regular paper)
  • Pen, pencils and eraser
  • Books you are using (fakebooks, charts, methods, etc.)
  • Water (last but not least!)
Having everything in one place is essential to focused jazz guitar practice. Avoid getting up to get "that book" or "that CD" or "the &%/$# tuner"...
The environment influences practicing and helps in creating an habit of practicing. It takes only 3 weeks to develop an habitual behavior.

2 - Goals and Planification

In order to move forward (improvement), you need a direction (goal). It's essential to know why you practice guitar! Ask yourself :
"...How am I sounding right now? How would I like to sound in the future?.."
Write the answers down on two separate sheets of paper.
Answer the first question honestly acknowledging reality. List your strengths and weaknesses. Acceptance leads to better playing.
Answer the second question with your own personal ideal. What's a "perfect" jazz guitarist to you? Make a list of many aspects.
With the two lists in hand, decide on the weaknesses that you want to make intro strengths immediately. (Choose the most urgent matters. Obviously, we all want all of our weak points to turn strong...)
Use your ideals as a point of reference to set goals!
Goals set? Alright! (-:
Be positive towards improving certain areas. The whole process will be very enjoyable if you keep a smile! The fact that you now acknowledge your strengths, weaknesses and goals will take you to new heights.
Note: From now on, I suggest you write everything down. I've been keeping a log for a long time; I find it amazingly helpful! The log is very personal because everyone has it's own way of keeping track. Find yours and start "logging" today!
Setting goals and foreseeing progress is of utmost importance for musicians. It'll boost your guitar practice.

3 - Material

This is the part where you decide what you will practice in order to attain goals. It can consist of anything from sight-reading Bach to transcribing Herb Ellis. Material can also be conceived in the form of exercises.
The musical material to be practiced differs from person to person!
Guitar practice is strictly personal and depends a great deal on the level, taste and general direction of each player. No one knows exactly what you should practice to achieve X or Y result. YOU decide! (-:
Since there's a tremendous amount of information (things to practice...) out there, you are the judge. We'll never plow through even 1% of all music so we have to be selective and choose wisely.
Here are general guidelines to help you pick (or create) what you'll be covering in you jazz guitar practice sessions:
  • Balance Different Areas
    Cover a few, but not too many, aspects of playing when you practice. It's no good to play only scales six month in a row... and it's no good to practice 52 different things each day! Balance is the key. (For example practice comping, scales and repertoire.)
  • Have Complimentary Approaches
    Attack the same problem from different angles. Be creative and keep the goal in mind. There's at least ten ways to approach any musical difficulty. Try not to be "exclusive" when choosing what material you practice to overcome an obstacle. Create your own exercises when needed, which leads me to...
  • Be Your Own Teacher
    Some books and teachers have great practice suggestions. In the end, I think that's what worked for them that there trying to teach you. Create your own exercises to overcome musical obstacles.
  • Learn Tunes
    Always go over at least a little bit of repertoire on a regular basis. It can be learning new tunes or perfecting known standards. Create a list of tunes you know (memorized) and work with it.
    You jazz guitar practice will raise your performance level ...and what's played during a performance exactly? (Tunes!!!) Thank you.
So, did you pick some material to practice? You know exactly what to do now to get to your goals. Congratulations!
Let's see how you should apply this to real life jazz guitar practice sessions!

4 - Practice Time

This is usually where most of my students have difficulties. Here again, it's necessary to perceive reality as it is. You will NOT be practicing 8 hours each day... for the next 10 years!!! (Well... most of us don't)
On the other hand, you are most likely to give a steady 30-45 minutes average per day. It's more than enough to make huge progress... if your time is used properly! (-;
Here are points to keep in mind to manage your jazz guitar practice time:
  • Focus
    Make your guitar practice time 110% focused. No distractions (please re-read #1). The value of 30 minutes of focused practicing is greater than a whole day of mere playing (or noodling!)
  • Practice "everything" in each session
    According to your goals, try to play through all your chosen material each time you practice. If there's an item on your list that you didn't touch for a week, it means that you have to much on your plate.
  • Plan each session
    Decide how much time you will honestly spend in focused practice before even touching the guitar. With this set amount of time in mind, plan the material you'll cover. Divide each session in small chunks of time to go through "everything".
    [For example: I have 5 items on my list and 75 minutes to practice. I'll do 20, 20, 5, 15, 15 minutes.]
  • Warm-up
    Pace the practicing material logically. I like to start with some slow scales and then I improvise on a tune. It prepares my brain and fingers to tackle my routine. At the end of the session, I also improvise but on a tune that's more challenging for me.
    Experiment and find what kind of warm-up works for you. Create your own session "starters"!
  • Practice Regularly
    It's best to do it everyday even if it's for a short session. Never try to "catch up on the weekend"... trust me, it doesn't work!
Go ahead and try daily guitar practice sessions for the next few weeks. Take note of what works for you. Write everything down so you can adjust later. Then come back and adjust with...

5 - Goals and Planification [Encore]

Keep this jazz guitar practice process in mind as weeks and months go by. I can keep most exercises (and their variations) in my routine for years at a time!
Improvement comes from slow and steady growth.
Come back often, re-visit and adjust your practice environment, your goals, your material and your practice time. Write casual reports on the results you achieve on guitar. Do it often! Acknowledge and improve.
I also encourage you to personalize my suggestions as much as you can. Experiment and follow your instincts. Discovering your own "improvement mechanisms" is far more important than following any specific method.
And last but not least :
  • Record yourself
    Pocket recorders are accessible and cheap nowadays. Listen to your taped practice sessions, rehearsals and performances. Be a critic but try not to judge. Just listen to your playing objectively.
    While listening to my gigs, I often get ideas about what I could improve in my playing. As always, write it down.
  • Live Performance ,Gigs
    Playing live or attending jam sessions is a great "reality check" most of the time! Do it often. I personally discovered most of my own weaknesses "under fire"... at a jam!
Good luck and Have Fun! :)
