I'm on the lookout for some backing track with simple power chords that let's me change mode throughout the song.

For example, a backing track with the progression A5, D5 and E5 would suit me good (an even simpler one could also work, even less restrictions then), as I can play A ionian, A dorian, A mixolydian and A aeolian over these chords.

Don't have the possibility to record one myself, unfortunately. That's why i'm asking; do anyone of you know where I can get one\some easy powerchord metal\rockish backing tracks for mode practicing?

Thank you biggrin.gif

Thanks for answering, but i'm afraid it isn't quite what i'm looking for biggrin.gif hehe

Searched some of those sites earlier, and most of the backing tracks are from songs or other multiinstrumental and harmonic composings, which means key restrictions. Would love to have an easy backing track with just a few power chords played on a distorted el-guitar or something like that, so that i can change to various modes whenever i want to that fits the chords being played

You can make your own backing tracks by using Band in a Box software.Its really worth it and you can make any chord progression you like in many styles! smile.gif

Check out my modes workshop lesson. IT has backings that go from I-VII chord in sequence, so you can practice all modes at the same time. If you want those backings PM me, and I'll post them on my board. cheers.

Check my Modes workout lesson here

Not metal or rockish biggrin.gif but you can play easily each mode for 16 bars over its relative 7th chord.

Whilst I may not be answering your original question, if you're practising modes have you tried Mr. Fastfinger's Guitar Shred Show

http://www.guitarshredshow.com/

I recommend to everyone that hasn't heard of Mika Tyyskä
