On this page I am posting some "practice along" rhythm tracks for Flatpicking Essentials, Volume 1 customers.
In Flatpicking Essentials, Volume 1, I presented a series
of rhythm guitar exercises that included a variety of bass runs and
fill licks. Each of these progressions were in the I, IV, V format.
Most of the arrangements I presented were in the key of G, however, I
recommended that the reader work to transcribe those progressions to
the keys of C and D as well.
What I am providing here, courtesy of my good friend Brad
Davis, are fast and slow rhythm tracks in the keys of G, C, and D. Each
track runs through a simply I, IV, V progression. The progressions
start with 4 measures of the I chord, then moved to 4 measures of the
IV chord, then 4 measures of the V chord, and then back to 4 measures
of the I chord. This progression repeats over and over again so that
you can play along and practice your bass runs and fill licks while
learning to keep time and maintain a good groove.
Have fun with these!
