Now it's time to play through our song with the backing. If you're still having a hard time with the swing feel, try to really listen to both my strumming and the backing track, because the swing feel is everywhere. And if you need to you can always try strumming along with the ghost notes we started out with, so that all you have to focus on is the swing feel.

I hope you've enjoyed exploring the swing feel. It's a great sound, and you find it in all styles of music. It's very likely that certain songs, styles and vibes came to mind for you as we were exploring all this. Try to go through your favorite songs and albums and see if you can find some songs that use the swing feel, and of course make sure you try it on your own afterwards. Alternate between the straight feel and the swing feel, so you really experience the difference. Have fun with it!
