Hi Bogdan!

Maharzan's last topic gave me the idea of possibly having the slower tracks to the lessons downloadable. It would be great to be able to use the slower tempos into a DAW for practicing and recording for playback analysis.

I think this is a great idea! Generally there are at least 5-6 slower backings per lesson, you wouldn't necessarily have to make them all downloadable, but could have it set up to be able to download 1 slow,1 medium, and 1 normal speed backing tracks.

My Sound Cloud Profile:

Gear I Use:

Guitars: Gibson: Les Paul Custom, ES-339, and Faded Flying V
Fender: American Stratocaster Deluxe (I think?)
Epiphone: Les Paul 56' Gold Top and Les Paul Standard, Casino
Yamaha: FG720S Accoustic

Amps: Fender Champ, Peavey Bandit 112, and an ancient Epiphone Amp:)

Effects: Digitech RP 500 Effects Pedal Picks: Dunlop Jazz IIIs

Practice, Practice, Practice, and remember Every Artist Does Get Better Eventually!

While you're at it, here's another suggestion.

I noticed that in lessons that have rhythm guitar in them, the same is not present in the downloadable backing track. I know that it's like that because slowing down the recorded guitar parts would distort their sound, as they're not MIDI. But how about keeping the rhythm guitar in the full-speed lesson? It sounds so much better. smile.gif

This is an example. There's super-cool rhythm guitar in the lesson, but not in the backing track:

There are more examples of this, so my suggestion is to keep the rhythm parts in the full-speed BT smile.gif

I completely back this one. It would also be great if we could have in between backing track like one lesson I am learning. It has 130bpm and then 170bpm. I so with it had 150bpm. Trying time stretch doesn't sound so good. sad.gif But I guess it depends on the instructor providing the backing track.
