I tried it several times with my banjo in a bluegrass context. "Jamming" as you know it from the real life doesn't work because of the large latency of internet connections (even the fast ones). Each of the player will play in time with the sound he or she is getting out of his own computer, but the other players will always hear him or she as being too late.

What actually does work are workshops or showing other people licks and such. In the bluegrass banjo world there is the Banjo Lounge, which is basically a chat with the option of one person speaking (or playing) at a time. I participated several times and it works very well.

Since I'm a total newbie in the jazz guitar fields I don't know what's going on here Wink .

Oh, btw it works the same with Skype. We tried that as well. I don't know whether ICQ offers the option of a voice chat.
