I don’t have a buddy to play along with, so this past week I’ve started to use Garageband on my iPad to lay down a drum track, stand up base and electric piano using “touch” instruments. With the software instruments as a background, I can jam along on my banjo, starting out slow and increasing speeds as my proficiency builds. Although typical bluegrass doesn’t have a drummer, it really helps to have a steady beat in the background…a nicer metronome. This has opened up a whole new experience for me, and I’m having a lot of fun.
