What are the backing tracks like?
- The tracks are MP3 audio tracks.
- There is a track for each of the progression examples found in the book. You can see the progression in the book, and hear it on the matching track. There are also some bonus tracks.
- In addition, some book examples have the chord progression played on several different backing tracks in different styles and tempos.
- The book examples are typically played three times through on each track. An extra ending chord is also played.
- The styles of the tracks vary. There are pop trios with piano or guitar, jazz and bossa nova sounds with both piano and guitar, country tracks, rock tracks with varying sets of instruments, and blues tracks with varying sets of instruments (including mandolin, fiddle, 12-string guitar, uke, harmonica, Hammond B3 organ, Rhodes piano sounds, acoustic bass, and electric bass).
- The tracks for arpeggios are set to be slow enough for you to ‘walk’ through the arpeggio fingerings at different speeds. Because the arpeggios have major and minor seventh chords as a focus, the progressions tend to sound a little on the “cocktail lounge” side in some instances.
- Each track has a 4 beat click at the beginning.
