Hi guys, thanks so much for checking out this first video backing track package from my site. Back in November 2013 I went into Silent City studios with Garry Jackson on Bass and Dave Walsh on Drums to record a series of organic trio based backing tracks that would build and fall naturally for you guys to jam over. The concept was to make cool sounding tracks with real players that would be both fun and challenging to play over and the result is these eleven tracks with close up video of each player.
