About How to Generate Backing Tracks:
Practice with a metronome is useful but can be rather boring for several reasons. One is obvious: tick – tick – tick – tick. But more importantly, all the ticks sound the same. Not so when it comes to understanding and playing well in world styles. For instance, ¾ time can vary from the accent on the downbeat, to an accent on the central beat, to the third and even after.
There are a number of ways you can create your own backing tracks, and in this lesson, Julie will show you how. A side benefit includes ear training as it pertains to chord progressions because not all tunes come with written-in chords. The good news? You don’t always have to spend money to be able to provide yourself with good tracks. Intrigued? Sign up!
