Guitar Rhythm Backing Tracks
The purpose of backing tracks is to give you a rhythm section (Drums, Bass Guitar and Rhythm Guitar) to play along with. This makes it much more fun and interesting while practicing scales, solos and improvising.
Just select which track you want and press play!
Make sure to play your scales in the right key. Each track has a little tip on where to start. You can expand on this and use the entire fretboard once you have an understanding on how all the scales relate to one another (the Soloing & Lead Playing program focuses on these concepts).
