I made a new Blues Rock Backing Track in D, inspired by the music of Kenny Wayne Shepherd, , Joe Bonamassa, The Black Crowes and more. Have fun with this swampy, driving blues rock jam track in the key of D.
The main idea for this jam track originated when I revisited Kenny Wayne Shepherd‘s ‘Blue On Black’ and the excellent cover that was done by Five Finger Death Punch. I saw KWS live for the first time last year, and the experience really blew my mind (what great tone!). I truly feel grateful that I had a chance to see this band at Blues Peer 2019.
I like my backing tracks unquantized especially for blues. Even though the drum parts are programmed in Steven Slate 5.5, they are not fully placed on the grid, to keep the natural and human feeling. I believe this helps to learn how to improvise on your blues guitar. Check out my other blues backing track in E (shuffle) here.
If you’re interested, you can download a HQ-WAV version from this ‘Blues Rock Backing Track’ in my Sellfy store below. That also helps to support my page & channel. Thanks! Maarten.
