Blues Drums Jam Tracks

   

11 A Straight Up Straight Down mp3 wma
Time/size: 6 mins 13 secs/8.57mb
Blues jam track: Straight tempo rock in A (90 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing track instruments: electric guitar and bass
Suggestions: Lay down a solid groove and play tight with the bass.
Especially on the 'a' of the 1st beat of the 3rd measure.

01 F# Chiller Chill Chill No Drums mp3 wma
Time/size: 7 mins 08 secs/10mb
Blues jam track: Blues-funk style vamp in F# (82 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing track instruments: electric guitar and bass
Suggestions: Go heavy on a semi open hi hat, play a syncopated bass drum,
and really crack the snare on the back beat.
Have a listen to some R.L. Burnside for similar blues vamps.

02 E Shake That Thang No Drums mp3 wma
Time/size: 4 mins 16 secs/5.86mb
Blues jam track:Mid tempo shuffle progression in E (130 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing track instruments:electric guitar & bass
Progression: standard blues 12 bar shuffle
Suggestions: Play a shuffle using a semi open hi hat.

03 D Burnt Steak Blues No Drums mp3 wma
Time/size: 6 mins 51 secs/9.42mb
Blues jam track:Laid back shuffle in D (86 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing track instruments: electric guitar & bass
Progression: standard blues 12 bar shuffle
Suggestions: Lay it back, use the ride.
Use the backbeat to bring out some dynamics. Instead of playing the snare on the backbeatt, just play the hi hat. Then move to a rim click and then bring the full sounding snare into it. You could also use some ghost notes on the snare on the 'an' of '1-an-a' & '3-an-a'.

04 E Stevie In The Crossfire No Drums mp3 wma
Time/size: 5 mins 15 secs/7.22mb
Blues jam track:Straight ahead groove E (110 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing track instruments: electric guitar, acoustic guitar & bass
Progression: this is a straight ahead one riff track.
I have borrowed this riff from Stevie Ray Vaughan's song 'Crossfire' from Stevie's last studio album 'In Step'. The riff also reminds me of the song 'Pretty Woman' by Roy Orbison.
Suggestions: Get a copy of 'In Step' by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, go and find the biggest stereo system you can, turn the volume up to 10 and put the entire album on repeat. Chris 'Whipper' Layton is a master drummer, particularly when it comes to laying down a groove and playing for the song. Play this track with a strict tight tempo and be definite with the snare.

John Bonham - Moby Dick

05 Db The Train Just Kept Goin No Drums mp3 wma
Time/size: 5 mins 18 secs/7.29mb
Blues jam track: Blues in Db (140 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing track instruments: electric guitar and bass
Suggestions: Play a really tight beat and keep it fairly simple. Get a little busy on the turn around section but otherwise focus on laying down a solid groove.

06 Ab Electric Mud No Drums mp3 wma
Time/size: 6 mins 33 secs/9mb
Blues jam track: Blues vamp in Ab (92 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing track instruments: electric guitar, bass and drums
Suggestions: Get a big fat bass drum sound going to give the song some extra punch.

07 A Nothin But A Jam Again No Drums mp3 wma
Time/size: 6 mins 35 secs/9.04mb
Blues jam track: 6/8 blues riff in A (60 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing track instruments: electric guitar and bass.
Suggestions: This is simply a repeated riff in 12/8 time in the key of A. Play it on the ride and the bell of the ride cymbal. Keep the back beat in the pocket (i.e. play strict time on the snare) and mix up the bass drum with some syncopation. Then try adding some ghost notes on the snare playing off the bass drum beat to fill out the whole sound.

Jam on!
