Roland Guitar Friend Jam v1.0
Guitar Friend Jam Version 1.0 is a social media application for guitarists.
Musicians using this social network can download free practice songs from Roland, share workout records on Twitter, and compete with fellow musicians.
Available for both Windows and Mac OS X, Guitar Friend Jam downloads a suite of practice songs after a user installs the application on their computer. The play-along songs cover musical styles including rock, pop, jazz, metal, and more, and feature full-band arrangements minus guitars. In addition to these special practice tracks, users can also add MP3 files stored on their computer and jam with their favorite tunes.
You can download the free software from the download page of the Guitar Friend Jam website, follow the instructions that appear on the screen, and connect a compatible GK-pickup equipped guitar to a Roland GR-55, VG-99, or VB-99. You can connect via the USB port to a computer, and jam. Internet connectivity and a Twitter account are also required for real time ranking and record sharing via Twitter.
