Jam CDs for “The Guitar Lesson Companion” method book series

This method book series was first published in 2006, back when folks had CD players. The latest edition does not include a CD, but you will find the Audio Tracks to all the editions here. The CD Jam Tracks are a big part of what makes The Guitar Lesson Companion series so much more effective than other method books, and I hope you enjoy using them here.

Audio Tracks for The Guitar Lesson Companion, Volume One SECOND EDITION

The first 100 tracks are streamable in the playlist below. I will finish the remaining Audio Tracks for the Second Edition by Spring 2018, if not earlier. All of the Audio Tracks for the Second Edition are now in the iReal Pro app, and you may actually prefer this way of accessing the Audio Tracks. There are a few benefits for students: You can easily change the tempo, feel, back-up instrumentation, and keys on chord charts; loop 2 or more measures that need isolated attention; and the cursor always highlights the measure being played, so you learn to not get lost. Link to the iReal Pro app and Playlist below, or just stream the tracks here:

“The Guitar Lesson Companion, Volume Two” Jazz Tunes

It’s super progressive (like all the LeadCatPress publications) and it will help students apply all of the things they learn in The Guitar Lesson Companion Method Book Series to “real” tunes. Most of the sheet music for these jazz standard chord progressions can be found in The New Real Book, Volume One.
