"Today's music education technologies expedite the sharing of knowledge between pro players and students of music. In turn, we keep music very much alive and heighten the demand for live performances," says Bonamassa.
Leveraging the world's #1 online music education company, TrueFire, and their proprietary video software, IN THE JAM with JOE BONAMASSA enables musicians to have an interactive learning experience by selecting any video angle and mix, mute or solo any of the audio tracks across all 10 original Bonamassa songs. This immersive learning experience allows fans to play along with Joe and the band as if they are in the same room with them.
Bonamassa explains, "You can mix and mute any of the tracks however you wish. You play the rhythm parts and I'll play lead, or you take the lead and I'll play rhythm. If you sing or play bass, drums, keys — just mute those tracks and jump in the mix with us."
Joe points out, "For guitar players just starting out, there's even an option to view an easy-chord scrolling guide, which is also synced to the video. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced player — there's a part for you to play along with me and the band."
In the JOE BONAMASSA BLUES-ROCK MASTERCLASS, Joe shares his creative approaches, key influences, and signature techniques for crafting rhythm guitar parts, improvising solos, performing, and writing original songs.
"I present all of the rhythm and lead guitar performance videos with multi-angle views, close-ups of both hands. I will teach how to play key parts of each song and share many of the rhythm guitar and soloing techniques that I use all of the time, on stage and in the studio," says Bonamassa.
"I will also demonstrate how my sound was influenced by many of the artists that inspired me as I was growing up. I'll also walk you through the guitars and gear that I used in the production of this course including The Snakebite, Tool #1, Bonnie Strat, my amp rig, and explain how I dial in my tone."
Both interactive video courses feature original tracks of 10 fan favorite songs from Joe Bonamassa's #1 Billboard Blues Albums to serve as the lesson framework for the courses. Bonamassa filmed and recorded new rhythm and lead guitar parts for each song to make them distinctive and give them more of a live vibe to better serve the lessons in both courses.
All the rhythm and lead guitar parts are tabbed, notated and synced to the video performance. Using TrueFire's guitar lesson tools, players can loop and sow down any section of a song to learn the parts at their own pace. For guitar players just starting out, there's an option to view an easy-chord scrolling guide.
