You already worked on a few classic bluegrass tunes but, before trying them in a jam, you'd rather work on it like in true life.

That is what Bluegrass Backing Tracks is (very) useful.

With almost 9 000 subscribers, this most simple youtube channel is very efficient.

Please note : these are just backing tracks, you will not hear the melody, the idea is to play like in a jam, but with more fun than with a metronome.

But this is also great for working on a series of chords, or try your regularity and smoothness.

Well, try this classic Nine Pound Hammer. The chord sequence and lyrics are on screen, so you can practice singing too, lucky you!

Note these tunes are recorded on speed between 80 et 165 bpm, so do not expect to work at very slow speed.

But...

You can use the Youtube speed function to slow down. Audio quality will get down too, but at least you can work.

My advice : do not work under 0.75% speed, your ears will be grateful.

Many thanks to Mark Wilson for a huge work resulting in a very simple practicing tool.

This really helps (a lot of) people.

We at Jam Hall, we love that.
