A Review of 50 Blues Guitar Backing Tracks by 50Blues

Here is a review of 50Blues from Guitar Player Magazine

I have been looking for good blues backing tracks for the longest time.

Finally, I have found the ones that I know will better my guitar playing tenfold. I can't believe how great the sound quality really is, I feel like I'm actually jamming with a professional blues backing band.

So what makes a blues lick remarkable?

It is not the riff, nor is it the tone. Experienced blues players know that one of the secrets of great tone isn't just the sound of an amp, but the feel.

In its simplest form its all about having a great backing to bring out the best in a blues lick.

If you're sick of wasting money on expensive guitar lessons, felt frustrated with playing the same lick over and over again, you might just find guitar backing tracks very useful.

Normally you gain a bunch of corny MIDI tracks which are just fake digital instrument sounds that are worse than television game sounds from the 70s!

50Blues has an amazing deal where you get 50 blues backing tracks that are Instantaneously download-able after you buy them. There is also an option to purchase the 2 CDs instead.

Practice your improvisations and composition skills over a selection of 50 different blues based jamming tracks in different keys and tempo.

Not only can these be used for improving your guitar playing but also the harmonica and harp.

The blues has influenced many other genres of music, such as rock and roll, jazz and popular music of today so uncover the #1 proven method of improving your blues playing.

They have everything from slow blues ballads, shuffles, fast, funk, jazzy blues and much much more. Now, with a click of a play button I can practice my guitar riffs and licks over a professional band that remains in tempo and knows how to back up a lead guitarist.

Any real blues musician will tell you that practice is what makes the difference. That is hands on practicing with a real blues backing band. Of course playing live is always the best because you can practice performing in front of people as well as playing along with the band.

But with blues backing tracks from 50Blues you are THAT MUCH CLOSER to the real deal. My lead guitar playing has already improved by at least DOUBLE since I have been playing along with these backing tracks. I've enjoy practicing so much with these tracks.

If you are just starting out with blues guitar or if you are looking to improve your existing soloing skills I highly recommend this product to you. I give it two thumbs up and 5 stars!

The only bad thing about it is that you can't practice in front of people like you can when playing with a real live professional band at a club or event or gig.

But hey...this is the next best thing and you might like it better being able to practice on your own before unleashing your skills to the rest of the world!
