Good For What It Is

"This is an excellent set of blues backing tracks. It includes slow blues, a couple of shuffles, blues in minor key and even a Latin type flavor blues. The tracks are about five minutes long give or take, and you set up your guitar (or harmonica or any other instrument theoretically) and jam. It's that simple. I intend to be jamming to this for a while.
The back up band that plays this is Oscar Jordan and the Mighty Sons of Hercules. This is an actual band that makes recordings and plays in clubs. It's a talented band and a professionally made dvd. In addition to the backgroud tracks there are three live performances of the band.
This is great...

"Great buy. Easy to use, lets you just set up at the TV and switch over to a practice session when the mood hits. The advantage in softwares such as Band In The Box for practice at least for me, has been that you can transpose whatever track you have to any or every key if you feel like it - however the setup overhead to getting everything around the computer that I need to practice is more time comsuming. Just using the DVD on the TV and having these sessions right there makes it not only easy but also fun. The variations are very nice, the latin flavor blues, slow shuffles, or rocking tempos, give you a nice workout. The visual queues from the "band" on the TV screen are great - more realistic then playing off a software lead sheet on a PC screen. It is worth the money and a must have for anyone buying or working on the "learn these licks" or scales instruction books on the blues topic. Takes all the tedium out of learning new licks or even running your scales."
This DVD delivers

"I'll just chime in with all the above.
For me, as a novice, watching the band and picking up on their cues
has been most helpfull"
