John 5 talks about Jammit at NAMM 2011

At the recent Winter NAMM 2011, John 5 chatted with Jammit, about why he is endorsing this great new revolutionary project which will allow you the player to strip down, isolate the tracks from your fav artist and listen, learn and play yourself.

WATCH:

Jammit is an app that will be free to download the software and then you purchase the original tracks – not studio or session musicians – and strip them away to learn them.

From Jammit’s website:

Jammit is the revolutionary play-along software that gives you access to the original multi-track recordings. For the first time, you can isolate the elements that you want to hear in your favorite recordings. Now you can learn to play them accurately with the aid of slow mode, phrase looping and digital transcriptions.

As their CEO Scott Humphrey said in an interview with Blabbermouth:

“What makes Jammit unique is that it lets users interact with the original recordings of the artists they love. By providing this unprecedented access, we’re enabling people to learn these fantastic songs at their own pace and in their own style.”

Jammit will be available soon.  Sign up to their newsletter to find out when it will be available and find out more about this product: http://store.jammit.com/

Welcome back to John-5.com

John 5 fans.  Welcome back to the site.  After a two week down period, we have spent the time rebuilding the site to restore it for your use again.  During this time we have used the opportunity to make some adjustments, including:

  • Re-installing the Wp-Touch plugin.  At the moment we have it set to see the latest news we post but in time we may open it to see other sections of the site.  Of course you can override the wp-touch plugin by scrolling to the bottom of the page on your cell/mobile and click the button to see full site. A little more about the plug-in below:

WPtouch automatically transforms your WordPress blog into an iPhone application-style theme, complete with ajax loading articles and effects, when viewed from an iPhone, iPod touch, Android, Opera Mini, Palm Pre, Samsung touch and BlackBerry Storm/Torch mobile devices.

  • Using a better top navigation system – which includes child pages – IE: click on Media and as well as being able to click on the media page and see it’s content, a drop down menu is shown which shows three extra pages – in this instance: Gallery, Videos and Extras.
  • Talking about the video page – we have installed a plug-in which means we can direct content your way – specifically we have set it up so you can enjoy some of the video interviews John 5 has conducted over the past year – and you don’t have to leave the page to see them.
  • We have looked at the forum again.  We have slimmed down the amount of sections you have, because we felt it was bloated with options – we think this makes it cleaner but still plenty of areas to post in.  Fan Club members please see the message on the board.

And there’s much more including a newly conceived album (discography) section – which has clickable thumbnails to see album details etc. And for some we have included links to purchase – this area is 90% complete so a few more bits to go in.

There are a couple of drawbacks, because of what happened to the site we lost all registrations to the site – we are sorry for this, but please do re-register (Sign Up tab in the navigation) and follow the registration instructions.

Anyway that’s just a taster – we are 85% in and in one more week we hope to have the site at full capacity.

Thank you for all your support during the downtime – and enjoy!

Rob Zombie Premieres “Everything is Boring” on ARTISTdirect.com

From ARTISTdirect.com:

Rob Zombie Premieres “Everything is Boring” on ARTISTdirect.com

robzombiepremieRob Zombie is unleashing a brand new song entitled “Everything is Boring” exclusively on ARTISTdirect.com.

The track features Joey Jordison of Slipknot and Murderdolls bashing behind the kit, John 5 ripping on the axe and Piggy D holding the bass groove. It’s one of Zombie’s most explosive and engaging salvos ever. Combining a rapid groove and an unforgettable chorus, this is classic Zombie with a fresh fire. It’s also the world’s first taste of Zombie and Jordison in the studio. There’s really no better combination than those two legends, and we’re honored to give you the first listen to “Everything is Boring.” The track is available on the special edition of Hellbilly Deluxe 2 hitting shelves on September 28 via Roadrunner Records [Pre-order here]. The special edition offers two other songs with Jordison on drums “Michael” and “Devil’s Hole Girls and the big Revolution” as well as a documentary entitled Transylvania Transmissions. Of course, there’s also “Everything is Boring”… (more…)
