wma: Freddy Alcheringa Backing Track

Time/size: 5 mins 47 secs/8.1mb. 90 beats per minute/bpm

Rock backing track: The backing track consists of rhythm guitar sitting on a G5 chord and an electric guitar that plays some light octave notes (G to G). The guitar tab for both rhythm parts is below. With the G octaves I'm varying the pattern I'm using between the two octave notes. The patterns are based on basic drum rudiments; paradiddles and the first drum rudiments drummers learn from books like Stick Control.

Backing track instruments: electric guitar, electric guitar, bass and drums.

Progression: The chord used for this track is G5.

Suggestions: Play the G blues scale over the backing track in a few different positions. I've put the guitar tab for 3 G blues scales below. Scales 1 and 3 are the same scale one octave apart. This is the most basic blues scale pattern and as I've said before, if you were only going to learn one scale pattern this is the one to learn inside and out. You could build a career as a blues guitar player on this one scale pattern ... if you were Stevie Ray Vaughan ... (which you're not).

You can listen to the track I recorded with lead guitar and learn the intro and head guitar riffs and the guitar licks if you want. I've written out the guitar tab to the whole tune so you can see what I was doing when I was recorded the lead guitar. Note that I'm just improvisation with the guitar licks on the track. They aren't planed - this is the way I play.

Ultimately you want to find your own licks. A good way to start is by playing around with the scales or taking a few notes from the guitar licks I've played and turn them into something that will become your own.

One of the best things I've found in trying to learn other peoples guitar parts is that I can never do it! I try but I just can't ever seen to get the notes right. I'm happy about that because I come up with my own sounds that are based on what I was first trying to learn.

You should aim for something similar. Listen and learn from others but don't worry so much about copying other people's playing.

Find your own path.

The force is strong with this one.
