More About Playing Guitar With Drum Tracks
One of the most important skills that new guitar players tend to overlook is their ability to keep time with a drummer or other type of beat. Doing so is fundamental if you’re intent on being able to play along properly with other musicians Unfortunately many guitarists are more focused on practicing the songs they like, riffs, scales, and various techniques etc. This timing skill is also what separates average muscians from good musicians. Keeping good time is also vital if you want to record yourself on multiple tracks.
When developing and improving your timing (a life long endeavor) ultimately you want to play by feel and not try to focus too much on the drummer. Inevitably you will find yourself losing the beat at some point. This is not always a bad thing because often musicians want the feel and sound of getting in front of a beat or behind it.
What’s also beneficial from playing with drum tracks is that you’ll learn about different grooves, timings, time signatures and more. Reviewing the drum trakcs on this page will also introduce you to vatious other genres including Blues, Bossa Nova, Country, Funk, Jazz, Punk and, yes… Rock and Roll. The list of drum tracks also indicates the Beats Per Minute (BPM) and time signature of the drum track.
If you’re thinking of recording your music, you can also consider uploading any of the drum tracks to your audio software. Sure beats having to deal with a real life drummer. Just kidding.
