Listen for the 1-2-3-4 count in click of the high-hat cymbals. That will tell you when to start and the tempo (how fast you can expect the pace of the music to be).

Again, this backing track is a simple audio recording of a bass and drums playing the same thing over and again. The bass plays the root notes of the chords we are practicing: A, D, A and E. The bass plays even 1/8th notes walking from chord to chord using notes of the A major scale. Each chord gets two measures, making a total of 8 measures then repeating.

  • A minor for 2 measures
  • D minor for 2 measures
  • A minor for 2 measures
  • E minor for 1 measures, E major for 1 measure
  • Repeat!

    ||: Am | Am | Dm | Dm | Am | Am | Em | E :||

    ||: i | i | iv | iv | i | i | v | V :||

    The bass and drums outline a simple back beat pop-rock rhythm with a cymbal crash to mark the chord changes.
