JamTrackCentral Guitar Hero Ballads
That is what our co-founder Jan Cyrka said when we decided to create our first ever JTC original full length album. Vai, Satriani, you name them...they have one!

So we spoke to a number of the artists on our glittering roster and asked them to compose their ultimate ballad. The result is a powerful album that is full of pure emotion and drive and takes you on a journey through the minds of 11 incredibly talented guitar players and composers.

Starting with Andy James' 'The Wind That Shakes The Heart' (which was written by Jan Cyrka and James Graydon) the emotion sucks you in from the first note, just as you would expect from a brilliant ballad track. The scene is then set and from there, all 11 JTC artists continue the same trend with their own individual take on the ultimate ballad. 

Any album that has brand new original tracks from the likes of Guthrie Govan, Alex Hutchings, Marco Sfogli, Jack Thammarat and more should be in any guitar players collection, there is no questioning that. However, we have gone the extra mile and provided you with 3 options!

Jamtrackcentral Daniele Gottardo 20 Outside Fusion Licks (2015) Jamtrackcentral Daniele Gottardo 20 Outside Fusion Licks (2015)
Soft / Video Lessons 30-08-2015
There is a new wave of fusion players, and Daniele Gottardo is at the forefront! Playing 'Outside' is a skill that is one of the toughtest to be able to grasp...but with this incredible set of 20 licks you are going to master it!

Daniele Says:

'Within this package you will find lots of ideas and different solutions to play over a minor harmony based around the Dorian Mode. I used different colors and ideas typical of the Fusion style: the use of the notes out of the harmony ( passing tones, enclosures , escape tones and others ) harmonic substitutions, ghost progression and coltrane changes. These ideas are played with a modern approach to the instrumental technique using legato, hybrid picking mixed with alternate picking, 8 fingers tapping and other. The licks are ordered and developed from easy to difficult, starting with four notes per beat and come in the last example to eight notes per beat! Have fun to study these ideas that you will find useful in the Fusion but also in the modern rock and metal era'

Each lick comes in full speed audio and video, plus a slower speed so that you can analyse every little detail! Also included is the backing track at different BPM's, giving you the backdrop to work on each lick at your own pace, as well as creating your own licks. As ever, accurate JTC TAB/Notation is included for each lick, plus there are some notes for each lick to help you further.

So, if you are serious about fusion then this is a package tha will take your playing to a different level! Watch the promo video below to get a little taster of what to expect!
