I can't get through to the payment page

This will be because your address details have not been filled out, or may be incorrect. Please check that your address and Country are correct.


I choose to pay by paypal and get a red error message

This will be beacuse your country is selected incorrectly. Update this and the error message will disappear.


My download failed

You have several attempts to download each product, so try again!

Because of the electronic (non-physical) nature of our products, we can unfortunately not give refunds for mistaken purchases or issues of personal taste. If issues beyond your control completely prevent you from downloading your purchases, we will offer a full refund.


My download says limit reached

If you use a downloader software then this can use multiple download attempts on each download attempt. We recommend you turn this off when you download our files.


My download speed is slower than normal?

We have some pretty hefty servers at JTC, so you should see a good download speed against your normal download performance. If you are experiencing slow downloads please do contact us through the site and we can run some tests to help!


I can't find my files?

The files will automatically download to the default download location on your computer. This is usually the desktop, but you can check by looking in the preferences/options for your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome or whatever).

If you can’t see the files, you can use your computer’s built-in search facility.

Mac -- Open Spotlight by clicking the magnifying glass icon in the far right of the menu bar. Enter ‘.zip’ as the search term and click ‘Show All’. By clicking the ‘+’ icon at the top right (next to the ‘save’ button) you can specify files that were created or modified today.

Windows -- Select ‘Search’ from the Home menu. When the window pops up, select ‘All files and folders’. You can then search for the term ‘.zip’ and select today’s date.


My files don't work

Remember… when you download our products, they arrive in compressed ‘zip’ format to make the download faster. You MUST open the zip files first. On a Mac, simply double-click; on Windows, right-click and select ‘Extract here’.

When the zip files have been opened (large files take a few moments) you’ll see a new folder with the same name as the zip file. This is the product you bought, and this folder will contain your jamtracks, Tab, videos or whatever. You can now safely delete the original zip file… or perhaps store it safely as a backup.


What type of AUDIO files are these?

Our audio tracks are in mp3 format, mostly encoded at 320kbps. We feel that this is the best compromise between sound quality and download speed. There are plenty of options for playing mp3 files - the most popular and free ones are:

iTunes - www.apple.com/itunes
Winamp - www.winamp.com


Importing audio files

In the File menu, select ‘Add files to Library’ in iTunes or ‘Add media to Library’ in Winamp, then navigate to your downloads (remember to open the zip files first). You can import all mp3s or select individual ones. All of our audio tracks have complete ID3 tags, so they will be displayed with artist, album and track information.


What type of VIDEO files are these?

We use mp4 format for videos. You can play these videos immediately in iTunes, QuickTime, VLC and many other programs. The format is also supported by Windows Media Player, but if you have an earlier version, you will need to download extra codecs. Search for the K Lite Codec Pack in your search engine.


How do I use the TAB?

All of our Tab transcriptions and lesson notes are in PDF format. This universal format can be viewed in Acrobat Reader (Mac/PC/Linux) or Preview (Mac only).

Most of our Tabs are also in Powertab (.ptb) format. The Powertab Editor program (www.harmony-central.com/Software/Windows/powertab.html) is only available for Windows, but it has a MIDI playback facility so you can play the notes (with a synthesizer sound) and you can adjust the tempo for more effective practising.

Mac users can open the Powertab files adequately with Tuxguitar (http://tuxguitar.herac.com.ar/. If you prefer to use Guitar Pro (on PC or Mac) this program can very easily import Powertab files into .gp5 format.

I can't see any video or hear any audio?

This is probably because you are running a flash blocking addon for Mozilla Firefox. Switch this off and you should be all set! Any other problems then contact us and we will help!
