There is an issue with the Jam Along track for the Ventura Highway song lesson. The percussion track is one bar ahead of the vocal track. This makes it nearly impossible to play along with the track (I have to use the Single Guitar backing track, which doesn't have this issue).

You can most easily hear this at the end of the first verse as it goes into the chorus. In the Full Performance track, which is correct, starting at about 1:02 you hear the vocals say the line "I know". The word "know" falls on the 1 of the measure. Then in the next measure, there is a drum break that plays on the 3 of the measure, leading into the chorus.

However, in the Jam Along track, the drum break hits on the 3 of the SAME measure that starts with the word "know". In my old days playing in a cover band, we would have called that a train wreck

I know this has been out there for a while, so I don't know if it's possible to fix it now, but I just wanted to point it out.

Thanks.
