Time/size: 5 mins 59 secs/8.4mb. 168 beats per minute/bpm

Rock backing track: An up tempo surf-rock kind of feel.

Backing track instruments: electric guitar, electric with wah, fretless bass and drums.

Progression: The chords used for this track are E, A and B which make it a I, IV, V progression in the key of E.

The progression is: E, A, E, B, A, E, A. I'm using very simple chord shapes for the track. The main rhythm guitar part is using a barre chord shape with the root of each chord on the 5th (or A) as shown in the guitar tab below. The second rhythm guitar that has a bit of a wah effect on is playing 2 and 3 note chords to compliment the first guitar part.

B|--9--
G|--9--
D|--9--
A|--7--

A Major Chord

B Barre Chord

Suggestions: This is a good progression to play an E minor pentatonic scale over. You can play the E minor pentatonic scale the whole way through and it'll sound good over these chords.

E minor Pentatonic Scale

E|-----------------------------------------------12--15--
B|--------------------------------------12--15-----------
G|-----------------------------12--14--------------------
D|--------------------12--14-----------------------------
A|-----------12--14--------------------------------------
E|--12--15------------------------------------------------

Don't try and play too fast just because it's an up-tempo tune. Let some notes sustain over the chords as they change so you can hear the difference in sounds that chord changes can make to a note that stays constant.

Most importantly of all, have fun.

Jam on!
