Backing tracks

This page will contain links to audio files for the examples published in the Guitar For Life 1 & 2 iPhone/iPad/iPod application. More backing tracks will be added over time so stop by often.

All files are original material, created in LogicExpress. The links point to folders hosted by the free MediaFire file hosting service.

New! Files names will end with the creation date in order to keep track of updates. All backing tracks will be remastered over time using better sound libraries. The plan is also to add more content to cover Modes and Drones better during the spring.

Backing tracks for Modes, Link to folder

Mixolydian1.mp3 Remastered.
2 chords changing thoughout, get into the habit of changing key OR stay in C minor all night.
Phrygian.mp3 Remastered.
2 chord changing, good groove. You will actually change between Phrygian and Lydian but only need to pay Ab Major throughout.
FmajJazz.mp3 (4Mb). Remastered
Play F major throughout the changes. See what you are playing over in FmajJazz.pdf. You will find Phrygian, Dorian modes etc. Try to think of the chord when playing over it.
