Make best use of your making music time – 15 to 30 seconds to arrange a superb Song Rhythm Track. That’s fast.

Music is a proud, temperamental mistress. Give her the time and attention she deserves, and she is yours. Slight her and there will come a day when you call and she will not answer. So I began sleeping less to give her the time she needed. – Patrick Rothfuss
Here is the thing.  It is wonderful to play along to a top rhythmic backing track, properly arranged but they have been so hard to acquire and organise.  So most musicians have not been willing to use them.  Everything has changed with Song Rhythm Tracks - 15 to 30 seconds to arrange a track that sounds superb. Totally in the groove.  So complete.   Easily rearranged.   Forever ready with the arrangement clearly visible.   Now you can always have great rhythmic backing tracks.

“Music is very spiritual, it has the power to bring people together.” – Edgar Winter view

Music is very spiritual, it has the power to bring people together. – Edgar Winter
When musicians come together they want to listen to each other, to each others music, phrasing, dynamics, micro-rhythms.  You want to listen to your fellow musicians.  To be fully focussed on it.  You don't want to be listening to a click-track or counting in your head.  My suggestion, if you don't have a drummer, use the same Song Rhythm Tracks in private practice and when you jam.  That'll free up your concentration for listening. #GettingIntoTheGroove #practicing with #SongRhythmTracks at alivedrumming.com
