I promised some more backing tracks last month and I finally grabbed a few hours to prepare some. As the last couple were in a Blues style I thought I’d make a couple of Pop influenced tracks this time. I also now have a dedicated page for backing tracks on the blog to save people trawling through the archives.
The first track is in C major and I placed a time constraint of four hours on from initial idea to full completion. I wanted to see how efficiently I could create a track and I think it came out really well. The second was the first draft of a song I’ve been working on. The track has changed dramatically since that point but it is still a fun track improvise over so I though I’d share it rather then it being cast into the pile of unused music. Let me know what you think and enjoy your practice!
