Thread: Great Practice Tool!

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Great Practice Tool!

    I was looking through some old posts this morning and ran across a thread about practice tools. A website called www.fbbts.com (Free Bluegrass Backup Tracks) has a good selection of backup tracks in many genres. The user can either speed songs up or slow them down easily. I had a fun time browsing around and playing tunes this morning. Not only is it fun but it is also free! This can definitely sharpen skills needed to play with others. Maybe this will help someone other than me! Have fun!

    I played along with some of the tunes tonight. It was fun. It does get some of the chords wrong on some songs. I want to say on songs like Old Daingerfield and Itzbin Reel to name a few. But all in all, it's a good tool.
