Is it time to do some more backing tracks? I’ll take the liberty of ego and make some formal requests: (anyone else want to nudge Obi-Wan Kenobi for more?
All of Me
Out of Nowhere
Laughing at Life
Sweet Georgia Brown
Honey Suckle Rose
Oh, Lady be Good
After You’ve gone
It appears this list is a shameless and selfish request…oh well, you never know till you askSeptember 5, 2015 at 12:39 pm #2444
I know it is not Tommy, BUT Jonathan Stout has “playalong tracks” for a couple of those tunes on his Swing Guitar Blog (http://www.campusfive.com/swingguitarblog/?currentPage=2). I think All of Me, Dinah, and Six Appeal are on there.September 7, 2015 at 6:27 am #2445
Thanks for the heads up on that. I’ll check that out.September 9, 2015 at 7:49 am #2450
I am for sure going to do another series of backing tracks. Craner has for sure put a good list out there. I have been compiling a list of song forms and specific songs that I think are cool to practice over. I will also include some Western derived tracks as well. Here is the list as it stands right now. If any of you have some suggestions like Craner please let me know.
A Good un- Bill Jennings
Annie Laurie- Tiny Grimes
Slow Boat to China- Jimmie Rivers
Seventh and Union- Hank Garland
Swing in Bb
Rhy Changes with alternate Bridge Bb
Stuffy- Jennings, Parker
Rose Room- C.C
Bob Wills Don’t forget about me when I’m gone, something with a III-VI in the chorus
Let me know boysSeptember 9, 2015 at 8:25 am #2451
Good list Tommy. A swing in F (like Tiny Grimes’ Morgantini with Mime) would be cool too.
