If you are like many musicians, you may not be playing with a band or at gigs at the moment for a variety of reasons. For example, you haven’t found anyone you want to play with or you’re not sure if your skills are good enough yet to hang with the musicians you’re playing with.
Regardless of your reasons and skill level, one thing is certain, you should be practicing to continue improving your skills (whether you think this is boring or not) .
So, how do you encourage yourself to practice regularly if you are not feeling it? Well, you can set up a drum machine, and then set up pre-recorded bass or rhythm guitar on that machine or on a separate machine you may have… This could help motivate you to play, but there is an easier way with BACK POCKET BAND.
You can easily select your backing tracks (bass and drums), and select the key and tempo you want to play in with just a couple clicks of your computer mouse.
All 4 Elements will be helping you out:
3) Key (Ab or any other key you want to play in)
4) Tempo ( Slow, Medium, or Fast tempo). If you want to learn how to play what you hear you have the option to slow things way down so its easier to learn.
There are over 300 files you can access and manipulate to your liking e.g. you can remove Bass so you can play yourself while the drum track is playing along with you etc.
Just double click and the streaming player will play live what you select. Now you have the foundation behind you and now you can groove along with it and actually enjoy your practice sessions.
What’s great is it’s an authentic sound from real musicians so its not just computerized sounds.
You’ll get to choose from:
1) Praise music
2) Shouting music
3) Contemporary grooves
Each section has 3 individual styles (3 praise styles, 3 shouting styles, 3 contemporary groove styles) and each individual style has 3 different tempo & speed slections (slow, medium, and fast). Each tempo and speed selection is available in all 12 keys!
This gives you the benefit of playing with a band that never gets tired, doesn’t charge to play with you etc. You can play as long as you want.
To your music success,
P.S. We left out one bonus you may still be able to get if you’re not too late. You can burn all the backing tracks to cd, transfer them to your iphone or ipad.., record with them and you’ll receive lifetime updates and other bonuses too!
P.P.S. This software is compatible with Song Robot and is PC and Mac compatible so you’re covered either way
