[NEWS] Not sure how to appropriately tag this, but I think I found easily the most practical and helpful guitar backing track on the internet.

It’s a simple 12 bar blues progression, but it plays in every possible key 6 times, following the circle of fifths – A, D, G, C, F, Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, F#, B E. The video is an hour long so it’s a really great way to get an hour of deliberate, meaningful practice in.

It also always shows what key you’re in, and what chord is playing.

This allows you to practice in a number of ways, but what I’ve been doing is soloing over each 12- bar progression in 1 position, and moving up a position after each full 12 bar progression. By the time I’ve gone up the whole neck, the backing track changes to the next key.

I may not be explaining it well, but check it out. It’s super practical and helpful for learning to solo, especially if you’re working on phrasing and nailing chord changes.

This is not my video, I just really found it useful, and wanted to share. I’m sure most of us have a lot of time on our hands right now.
