"I just bought this! Its pretty cool. The music is quite "techno" sounding (definitely electronic as opposed to the more traditional live recording sound), but good strong back beats and clear melodies. There is just a little bit of 'playing around' with the absolutely traditional versions of the tunes, adding a nice touch without making them less useful for practice. Its easy to use, sounds good, and overall I am quite impressed! And yes, its available in the Aussie Itunes store, because that's where I just bought it :)" -- A happy customer
