In this section, we have a range of seriously inspirational backing tracks based on the style of great bands and great guitar players. Not only that, but watch our tutors jam along with the tracks for some inspiration!
Led Zeppelin Style Backing Track in C Minor
This track is based around some of Led Zeppelins more bluesy offerings, where Jimmy Page would truly take centre stage with his lead guitar performance. The track is in C minor and you can generally use your C minor pentatonic and C minor scales here. Have fun!
Dire Straits Style Backing Track in G#m
This cool backing track is based around the Brothers In Arms era of Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler. We have a looping chord progression in the key of G# minor that is played by a number of instruments, including a cool soul organ. Have fun!
John Mayer Slow Jam in C# Minor
This backing track is based heavily on John's Continuum style album. The track is in the key of C# minor, and you can basically use your C# minor pentatonic scale all the way through to get that John Mayer vibe!
John Mayer Cool in C# Minor
This John Mayer track is based around two tunes - Waiting On The World To Change and Human Nature. It's got a really beautiful chord progression and the C# minor pentatonic scale will get you all the way with it!
Santana Style Backing Track in A Minor
This track is based on a couple of Santana's most classic tracks, really utilising the Dorian movement of A minor to D major. We also reference the C major chord within the riff, which adds an extra flavour to it.
