Much thought and consideration has been put into each one of the tracks to make them representative of the many diverse elements found in guitar-driven music. Tracks specifically for Bass players and Drummers are available too!

Note from producer Mark Fitchett: Being a guitarist myself, I know what I like when it comes to jamming with a band so it is with utmost confidence that I can say that Pro Band Backing Tracks groove and inspire. I'll admit that I am biased, after all I did create them, but I absolutely love playing and practicing to them myself and use them all the time.
What's New in Version 4.4
- Fixed bug that prevented bluetooth output to work
- Added enable/disable of input. When input is disabled, the Red Banner at the top disappears
- fixed issue in Restore Purchases that restores too many purchases
- other fixes for stability, particularly when there are many tracks purchased
Bug?? No help contact?
This seems like a nice app, but I got stuck immediately on what appears to be a bug. And unless I'm missing something there's no way for me to get help, or report a bug.
For example, the Slow Aeolian Jam consists of a four-bar progression. The first three bars are a G–G-D–C sequence, repeated 3 times. For some reason, the big “Current Chord” display, which shows you what chord is being played at that moment, just shows a big “G” for three full bars (all 12 beats), with no change. It ignores the D and the C chord changes in each bar. Weirdly, the fourth bar IS shown correctly. The fourth bar is the turnaround (B-A-G-D), and the Current Chord display shows B, A, C, D on each beat.
So that doesn’t work. Who do I contact?
Awesome - Thrice!!!
Great additions for using amp sim apps AND recording solos - great update Mark and Dave!!!
I bought this app when it was first developed. Mark Fitchett and the app developer have done a great job continuing to develop and support the app. It is a perfect companion for jamming and practicing. The quality of the tracks are awesome and the ability to change key and tempo creates endless variety. Awesome app!
Very good app for jamming in different keys and tempos. My only complaint is this app will not display in landscape mode. Unfortunately, because of the type of ipad stand/adapter I have, I must use this app sideways. Very inconvenient, and there is really no excuse for this oversight these days.
