Joe Bonamassa's Jam Session Playbook


"Bonamassa's 'Jam Session Playbook' is electrifying, groundbreaking, and an absolute must for anyone looking to master live jamming.”

Joe Bonamassa’s ‘Jam Session Playbook’ draws on the wealth of knowledge that he’s accumulated over thousands of live performances and sessions with hundreds of world-class musicians. 

”Musicians frequently find themselves in a jam setting and need to know how to interact with other musicians in a live setting and change up what they’re playing to accommodate the music.”

To demonstrate how pro musicians communicate and react to each other in the moment, Joe brought his band and the camera crew into the live tracking room at Nashville's legendary Ocean Way studio.

”I recorded the tracks for this course in a live setting with my band. On drums, Greg Morrow, a wonderful drummer, very, very meat and potatoes. He's a groove master and everything he plays is effective. Reese Winans on keys, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee for his work with Stevie Ray Vaughn. And the legendary Michael Rhodes, one of the most musical bass players of all time. “

You’ll see and hear how Joe and the band interact live and play off of each other to record all 10 tracks in a single day.

“I’ll show you how I storyboard a song from an idea to a completed product and how we make small changes based on what we're doing in the moment and what the players come up with on the spot.”

Joe plays all of the rhythm parts in the tracking room with the band and then moves into the control room to record all of the lead guitar parts. Joe overviews all of the tracks and breaks down his rhythm and lead parts emphasizing how the live dynamic influenced his playing.

“For each of the tracks, I’ll share my rhythm guitar and soloing approaches to illustrate how all of the parts fits in its own place and is played for a reason.”

All of the rhythm and lead guitar performances are transcribed, tabbed, notated and synced to their corresponding videos with looping, slo-mo and many other controls to help you personalize your workspace and learn at your own pace.

“I’m very happy with the 10 tracks that we produced live. The variety of feels personify my life in the blues. I hope players will enjoy sharpening their jamming skills with them as much I enjoyed recording them.”

Grab your guitar, and let’s dig in with Joe and his band!
