Guitar XzJam Band app is a virtual band (song loop) for guitarist. A guitar player can jam with a virtual drum and bass player; choose their tempo, time signature and position (root note). XzJam is good for bands, improvisation, scale, jam and solo training. Use headphones or speakers, take your guitar in your hand and let's jam! It’s also good for warming up fingers and getting the rhythm before gigs. XzJam works with harmonica as well as other instruments.

XzJam Blues Band is Free down from $1.99 right now. It's a very simple backing track payer which allows the user to choose from three Keys ( E/A/C ) and a couple of Drum/Bass progressions (Riffs). Tempo can be adjusted so you can play along at whatever pace suits. The recorded sounds are good but can you make your accompaniment live up to your legend? To help are included charts for each Riff which detail some guitar riffs ( on a Tab ) and some scales which fit. Yeah, dots on strings but the price can't be beat.
What makes it a bit interesting is that there are several 'editions' of this App. I have listed the Blues Band, but there's a Heavy Band, Rock Band, Jazz Band, a Drum Version ( bass and guitar.. no drums ) and a Bass version ( Drums and Guitar ). They are all free, so if you get them all there's a bit of variety to play along with. I think the Full Version ( all versions?) still costs ... but I hope has no ads!
For true Virtual Strummers the app also keeps playing in the background so you could attempt a solo in iFretless Guitar or something!
