    Why are the jam tracks (without guitar) longer than the actual solo? Solo one for example is just under a minute and the jam track to record over is over six minutes long. No big deal.....just wondering if I missed something in the video.

    So you can improvise over the balance of the jam track.

    I forgot to add, on the BGU bonus disk there are extended versions of the jam tracks for each of the BGU solos, for the same purpose.

    I was thinking that but wasn't sure......what I didn't know is about the BGU bonus disk and their extended versions of tracks.....I've never even looked at it since I got it.
    Thanks glynnd.
