Why can’t I get Song Rhythm Tracks on iTunes or Amazon?

Song Rhythm Tracks are now available via Apple iOS mobile App and will be available via an Android mobile app. The huge number of arrangements and rhythms means distribution via iTunes and Amazon does not fit Song Rhythm Tracks. This is because Amazon and iTunes do not have a way for musicians to select the arrangement and rhythm.

What do drummers think of rhythm tracks?

One thing's for sure,

the drumming always, always needs to follow the form of the song
Drummers know this;   Amateurish use of rhythm tracks often don't.  https://alivedrumming.com/song-form-rhythm-tracks No getting around it, if you accompany someone on the drums you need to always be outlining the song's form and if you arrange your own rhythm tracks, you need to do the same. That's why Alive Drumming's Song Rhythm Tracks always uses the song's form as the basis of the arrangement. It creates a great arrangement simply by structuring everything around the song's form. https://alive-dru

When to work on your “Rhythm”?

When learning a new piece of music, when should a musician work on getting right the rhythm and feel of the piece?

We have long believed it has to be the very first thing to get right and there’s little point playing notes at all unless they are in the desired rhythm (feel and groove).   Tempo, however, is a whole other subject – there’s a lot to be said for precision and even playing tunes at markedly different tempos to internalize the piece better.
Timing is the bedrock of all music:  “When a note is struck at the wrong time, it’s the wrong note”.
Getting playing in the right rhythm as soon as possible is why we have always sought out structured and inspiring rhythmic backing.  This ultimately lead to  “Song Rhythm Tracks.
