JAZZ WALTZ: II-V-I-VI
DESCRIPTION This is a session I did for rhythmmatters.co.uk It’s a II-V-I-VI in G in 3/4. My guitar part was 1st and only take like all the other songs I did for them. It wasn’t easy!
USE FOR This is a great backing track to practice 3/4 in a jazz style. The key is quite simple (G) so you can really focus on the phrasing in 3/4.

DESCRIPTION This is a country backing track that I did for the Country Essentials column appeared on Guitar Techniques 157.

FUSION: D DORIAN
DESCRIPTION This is one of the Backing Tracks I did for the Brett Garsed interview. He didn’t use this particular one. The magazine asked me to do some sort of ‘soundtrack’ for the DVD menu (with Brett’s interview) so I recorded a solo myself. You can hear it in the AUDIO page.

USE FOR Static Backing Tracks can be useful for many different reasons. I personally found this one particularly good for studying Sextuplets and 32nd note phrasing.
