Includes online audio access using the unique code printed in the book with an all-star rhythm section and isolated bass parts, so players can listen to Ron play the sample written lines, practice them with the audio tracks, then create their own lines with the guitar, piano and drums backing them up.

The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.
