Backstroke > Solo Lesson 2

Hi Folks, This week we continue on the solo section of Backstroke. The next chorus goes up an octave and constants of more riffs that are an extension of the theme with space left in between riffs for an imaginary answer riff like on the head. We concentrate on pull offs, hammer-ons, rakes and bends to re-create the sound of Albert before returning to the head theme. Remember while soloing to leave that 2 bar space between your solo riffs.

Enjoy, Duke

Hi Mark,

I download the MP3 of the backing track, and use software to combine it with my playing.  I use Ableton Live, but Audacity works well and is free.

Mark, there is a backing track on the previous lesson.

 

to pst of video one needs to open the backing track in one pane (tab) and then open the same page in another pane (tab).

This is probably a silly question; however.......

What do I 'click' on to find the backing track to practice what I've put together to go with this song?
