Roland has launched a new social networking tool designed to help drummers from all over the world to connect with each other.

The V-Drums Friend Jam software application allows users of the drum kits to interact with other players, as well as improving their skills by performing to mp3 songs, reports MI-Pro.

It is free to use and works with both Windows and Mac OS X.

There are a variety of different tracks for drummers to practice with, covering genres such as rock, metal, pop and jazz.

The pieces feature full-band arrangements with the drum parts taken out, while users can also add their own mp3s to the tool so they can jam along to the tracks they love the most.

A calendar feature is also included, which records daily playing time and therefore offers drummers a simple way of setting and achieving practice aims.

Individual performances can be evaluated on elements such as technique, stamina and beat, and users have the chance to post the results on Twitter.

Roland V-Drums are the most popular electronic drum kits on the market and were recommended as the ideal Christmas present for modern men by Five's The Gadget Show last year.
