Look at the press reviews below
The CD offers the ideal playalong
for all Rock/Pop-musicians, who like to allow free
play to their soloistical altitude-flights. The
CD is didactically, reasonably built: Besides completely
Funk-, Rock - and Pop-Grooves (Playalongs) all 12
keys are dealt with.
The scales you can use for
your improvisation, you will find in the CD-booklet
The playbacks are within
itself diatonical, that means each playback is within
itself closed in any key! This CD is a must not only
for guitarists but also for saxophonists, trumpeters,
pianists; in short, for all those who play a lead-instrument
and who would like to improve their abilities of improvisation.

& VISION, issue 2 / 2002, called the production"
exceptional " and moreover:
" With the help of this production the one practicing
can focus on the harmonic surroundings, while improvising,
and that way develop the ability of playing solo.
Already, the first Track in C-major has despite its
simple harmonies a good sound so that even beginners
can deal with it easily and develop their abilities
with the help of the CD.
7 / 2002 - review by pianist Wolfgang Wierzyk:

artificial. The songs are varied and stylistically
diversified." And further on: " With 12. - Euro the
CD is well-priced", as well as: "conclusion: a promising
approach, which should not be endangered by copying

Quotations of musicians on the
CD " Playbacks for improvisation " Vol. 1 by Jörg
Sieghart (for all lead-instruments):
- founder member and ex-guitarist of SUPERTRAMP comments:
"... No dry practice-patterns but lovingly arranged
and well-composed pieces in many different styles
and tempos, which work as ideal scenarios for your
own fantasies as a soloist..."
Haymo Doerk - professional
musician, ex-guitarist of Poems for Laila and guest-guitarist
of Engerling as well as Scirocco - thinks:
" Whether for instruction, for trying out new ideas
or simply for letting of steam - these playbacks deliver
a groovy, vivid and well sounding playalong, as one
can only wish for as a soloist. With the push of just
one button each key and style from pop to rock is
available - wonderful "!
- highly considered Singer/Songwriter, guitarist and
music-teacher - says: " With different
stylistics of rock and pop-music, this CD offers very
well done playbacks for improvisation. Here, beginners
as well as advanced musicians can experience themselves
as frontman of a modern Rock/Pop-Band and enlarge
their instrumental proficiency in playing solo. A
modern orchestration and up-to-date grooves provide
a lot of fun.
Moreover, this CD is an absolute enrichment for the
progressive instrumental-school! Well tempered and
motivated students, who are finally allowed to rock
and who have the possibility to try out what they
have learned under real conditions, prove it....Good
that there is" Play-A-Long " CD, now, for future rock-
and popstars! "

internet domain for musicians, Bloom, writes in their
review by Robert Kneschke:
Ahem, because of playing around on my guitar I had
almost forgotten to write this review. If a Playback-CD
can distract that much, that is a good sign. ..........................
A sonorous, diatonical carpet is created by percussion,
rhythm-guitar, bass and keyboard, to which soloists
can play and let off steam. .................................
.Now, please excuse me, I would like to keep on playing
to track 14, reggae in G-major."
to the CD " Playbacks for Improvising Vol.1 " by Jörg
Sieghart appeared on our Groove it Label of Tunesday
" The effect of learning exceeds by far only
the stylistic one: That way trumpeters and saxophonists
must also deal with, from their point of view, inconvenient
guitar-specific keys like E-major or A-major, while
the guitar-playing colleagues should also play their
solos over the typical keys for brass, which is very
useful for the ability of playing." And further on:
" There is no need to argue about the quality of the
production........Instrumentalists of each couleur can
let off steam at home and can appear in the rehearsal
without being upset. And that is really a good thing
MUSICIAN, issue 6 /
"Something that was missing until now are Exercise-Playbacks
for the Pop/Rock section, which introduce the practicing
one systematically into the matter and accompany him
through the different harmonies and keys. With Groove
it - Playbacks Vol.1 Jörg Sieghart has filled this
gap in the market, successfully. And further on: " More
CDs in the playback-series are due to follow... ...
we are curious and pleased with Jörg Sieghart`s
commitment, which enriches the market decisively."
issue 2/2003 - Magazine of the German Rock-Musician-Association:
" The investment is worthwhile for each band ".
