Play along with a bluegrass band and get repetitive muscle memory practice on these fun standards. You can do this for hours and nothing is better for your playing. Each song is demonstrated at three tempos with a backup band to practice along with. In addition to the tab, the book includes the chords written out for each song with instruction for using just the chords to play along.
I firmly believe these backup tracks will help your progress a lot, and you'll have a lot of fun with them too, no matter what level you are at.
I recorded the backup tracks in the recording studio at three different speeds, and not too fast either!
The tempos of the songs range from very easy, (90 Beats per minute/BPM) to a slow medium tempo, (130 /BPM) to a moderate fast speed, 105 BPM double or cut time, (Four eighth notes per click). Included are recordings of the songs, backup play along tracks at three speeds to play along with, instruction tips on each song!
In addition the book includes instruction on learning how to play by the chords to the song, has easy to read tablature with accent marks for melody notes, and there is a CD with available DVD.
