Blues Groove Backing Track in C

Post by meritonemusic » Sun Mar 25, 2012 12:58 am

Hey guys,

I have been having fun with this backing track in the last couple of days, so I thought I'd share it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgOX9t0mysQ ...
it moves between the I and the IV chord in C...

:wave: - thanks very much! Well... I'm a session guitarist and songwriter, based in London. I've written a book on guitar (published by Parragon) and I also write for Guitar Techniques Magazine - recently started doing a monthly blues column, this month on Derek Trucks... so I've been playing a LOT of slide guitar lately :)

I also make jam tracks.

Thanks again for your kind welcome... :D

sure,

I'm about to record some vids for slide based tracks that I'll be performing this summer - but in the meantime, I play in front of all my jam tracks -

there's a bit of slide playing here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgOX9t0mysQ

and in this swinging 6/8 track http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOY_bKuKRLM

here's a rocky track, some bluesy bending going on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyWKs0lC-Z4

and a full playing video called ♥ Guitar Love ♥, showing my appreciation for the Fender Jazzmaster
