Backing Tracks

I started making these for my students and after several requests I thought share them with the world. When ever I learn scales I always spend sometime running them ascending and descending with a metronome to familiarize myself with them. Whilst this time honored tradition is essential it isn’t particularly musical. Once I’m comfortable with them I always try to explore and improvise the with a backing track. I often use a looper pedal (TC Electronic Ditto in my case) to make the simple chord progression or seek out a backing track like those I’ve made below. I hope these tracks allow for a more musical practice routine.

If you want to know about the latest videos then subscribe to my channel – Antony Cull YouTube and like anything you find useful so I know what to create next. Alternatively leave a comment on the video or email me at antony_cull@hotmail.com if you have any requests. If requests could be based on a scale, style, artist or genre then I can easily add them to the list. If you know anyone else that would find these helpful please share them on your social media of choice.
