Hi guys
I recently made a backing track that allows me to play through all the modes of the major and the important harmonic minor modes, use chord tones, practice inversion, arps in
C,D, E,F,G,A and B
The backing starts with a the standard triad (4 bars) followed by for bars of each , maj7,6,7,9,m,m7,m9,m7b5,mmaj7,dim (means 44 bars per key). At the last bar of the dim chord the pattern changes to let you know that a new key starts. The first mp3 file includes C to G, the second file A and B . All in all you have a 308 bar workout.
If you're up for some serious workout to get your theory and ear training to the next level. Here it comes.
Have fun

Downloaded the first one and listened to it !

I like the idea behind it
Very good concept

I can see this working out as very nice warm up for any intermediate or advance player
However I think you need to "polish" the backing a little bit more

The concept is awesome- I love the way you are thinking I am all the way with you !

Look forward to more of your posts!

It's an interesting concept for sure, and backing is nice and relaxed for practicing. Thanks for sharing it mate.
