The "Play at Home Challenge" is all about jamming at home, having fun, and honing your chops. We asked PRS artists around the world to contribute to this fun challenge by either sending in the tracks to one of their songs, or creating a unique backing track for you to play to!
The artists came through with 8 uniquely interesting tracks. Below, watch each PRS artist play their own take, then download them and give it your own spin - have fun!
If you like what you've created, be sure to post your playing over any track using the hashtags #playathome and #myPRS - we're looking forward to seeing your creativity!
Simon McBride sent us his cover of The Cure's "Lovesong" from his latest four-track EP, Show Me How to Love. Below Simon plays his solo portion for the song, but on the downloadable track below, you can add your own solo over this classic tune.
Jamiroquai guitarist Rob Harris created a funky-fun track for you to play along to. Watch him play some tasty leads below, then download the track and have fun.
David Grissom not only makes great PRS signature gear (the DGT & DG Custom 30 Amp), but he is a prolific songwriter. Below he jams along to "Skimming the Surface" off of his 2011 release, Way Down Deep. Share your own licks to this fun tune with the raw track below.
King Crimson's Jakko Jakszyk has a commanding knowledge of the fretboard. Watch him let loose on this track he contributed from the comfort of his home studio then download it for your own take.
Periphery's Mark Holcomb plays along to a section of "Omega" from their album, Juggernaut: Omega. Download the solo portion of that track below and have fun!
A little bit funky, a little bit 80's, Mark Letteri put together a fun upbeat track for you to play over. Here's his take on it below.
MARTIN "ACE" KENT
