I would like to be able to practice playing this backup along with a vocal to get the feel of what it is like to play behind a vocalist. Is the chord progression in this lesson based on any particular song? And maybe I can find the song (with vocal) somewhere on the internet so that I could practice along with it. Thanks so much for any help.
Hi Mike, This is really a basic question and you probably explain this somewhere else, but what do you do when the song has multiple measures of the same chord. e.g. start with 4 measures of G, followed by 3 measures of C, then 5 measures of G, 3 of D and finish of 2 measures of G.
After you play your 2 initial backup measures, where do you go? Do you repeat them? What happens when you have 3 measures?
How can you judge what speed to play these licks? You have to fit in up to 8 notes in a measure where you only have 2 beats of another instrument for the timing.
