What we like so much is that the format is minimal and straightforward, with a simply-written melody, chord symbols and a single verse of lyrics.   Great for busking or developing one's arrangement. Moreover, they print beautifully as they are not scans

How to practice, then how to jam?

Learning Melodies in Private Practice

Here are my views on how to go about practicing and jamming.

This is such an important part of the journey of becoming a musician. I wrote this down for the benefit of a musician just setting out on his journey, wanting to know what the key things were that would determine their success.  I know I certainly did not go about it the right way for many years.  I had not had any musical education as a child

What folk are saying about Song Rhythm Tracks – Ele’ –

What makes sense to me and other musicians is the sort of language that would be used between us as we play together. That’s why I call this App a ‘musicians’ arranger.

Ever had your heart broken – by a metronome or drum machine?

You have to, take a deep breath and allow the music to flow through you. Revel in it, allow yourself to awe. When you play, allow the music to break your heart with its beauty. – Kelly White

If you are going to allow your heart to break with the beauty of the music, may I suggest you play along to talented session drummers rather than the automated rhythms of drum machines?  That's how we feel about Song Rhythm Tracks.  It is as if someone is playing the song with us and boy, can they play!
