“Music, at its essence, is what gives us memories. And the longer a song has existed in our lives, the more memories we have of it.” – Stevie Wonder view

Music, at its essence, is what gives us memories. And the longer a song has existed in our lives, the more memories we have of it.
 - Stevie Wonder
We practice songs to get a memory of them and eventually to enjoy them in many ways. How do you get that song into your memory faster? Play it over and over?  Better still, play it over a Song Rhythm Track, arranged for that song.  You will hear the melody in the context of a good rhythm and in the form of the song.  You will enjoy it a whole lot more. You will remember it quicker and more reliably.  You will have better memories of it.  And now with Song Rhythm Tracks, it will only take seconds to select.

Song Rhythm Tracks audio is dry! Will Alive Drumming, or can I, add reverb?

Alive Drumming's Song Rhythm Tracks are supplied without reverb' (aka "dry").

We are working on making our iOS app Apple inter-app audio (IAA) compliant.  When ready, you will be able to use other, 3rd party app's to add reverb' to the audio.  See this Youtube video for some of them in action.
