Track 1 in C major - “F That”

This backing track uses chords in the key of C. Use the C major scale exclusively and get started improvising by following each of the steps in lesson 6! Learn how to play the rhythm parts to this backing track in my improver guitar course, which includes the TAB and a full tutorial for this track!

Track 2 in G major - "Infinity"

Now we’ll get started improvising in other keys. Use the G major scale or the G major pentatonic scale to improvise over this track. You may also with to try using the G major scale on 1 string- which would be the 3rd string!

Here's a example of improvisation using the G major scale. This video is an extract from a previous Facebook live stream!

Track 3 in G major - "Golden fields"

This track is in G major, but begins on an E minor chord. E minor is the relative minor key to G major - which means both have the same chords! Give it a go with the same methods you use on track 2.

Here's a example of improvisation using the G major scale. This video is an extract from a previous Facebook live stream!

Track 4 in D major - “Don’t Be Blue”

This track uses the chords D, A, Bm and G in a loop for most of the song. The D major scale or D major pentatonic should be used, as well as perhaps the major scale played on the D string…spotting a theme now? Good! J

Track 6 in G major - “Random City In Europe”

This George Ezra inspired track is in the key of G major. Now is the time to really mix everything you have learned in this course and maybe even try some string bending! Learn how to play the rhythm parts to this backing track in my improver guitar course, which includes the TAB and a full tutorial for this track!

Track 7 in G major - “Campfire Rock”

Another track in G major, which is probably the most common guitar key for acoustic music. Because this track is slower, you may be able to get some faster rhythms in without worrying too much about the timing. For example, 16th rhythms (which the rhythm guitar part is playing from around 20 seconds in) should be possible. Just because the track is slow, doesn’t mean you have to play a slow lead part over it!
