There are many aspects to learning to play the guitar, with solitary practice being the one that is likely to take up the vast majority of your time. However, if the aim is to play in a band, that solitary practice is not the be all and end all but just something that prepares you for that situation you will really only progress by getting together with other musicians and learning the art of listening to and playing in time with a rhythm section. Getting live sessions together, though, takes organisation and it isnt something that all guitarists will have access to on a day-to-day basis, so ideally there should be something to fill the gulf between practising scales and learning riffs on your own, and the act of playing with other musicians. That halfway house has to be playing along with backing tracks and Line 6 has just come up with something that easily facilitates that: the Spider Jam, a combo amp that comes loaded with quality backing tracks for you to play along with.
