Andy Wood’s The Hardest Goodbye Backing Track

A guitar backing track I recorded for Andy Wood’s gorgeous guitar instrumental ballad The Hardest Goodbye from his album Caught Between the Truth and a Lie.

Rhythm guitar, bass and drums only (no lead guitar). Done in the original key of Gm/Bmaj and tempo of 48 bpm, pretty much exactly as on the record.

If you record yourself jamming over this track, please post it in the comments, I’d love to hear what you come up with! This is a great track to improvise over, even if you don’t want to cover it exactly as Andy played it on his album.

Have fun!

Backing Track: Sunshine of Your Love – Hard Rock Style

Sunshine of Your Love by Cream is one of the first songs that I learned to play on guitar way back in the day. So I thought it’d be fun to do a backing track for this in more of heavy/hard rock style.

This is bass and drums only (no guitar or vocals) and done in the key of E (not D like the original recording) to give it extra heavy goodness!

Backing Track: Epic Rock Ballad Jam Track – in A minor

A backing/jam track I came up with in the key of A minor inspired by the solo section of “Within Cold Glass” by The Reasoning. Has just 2 chords (goes between Amin and Cmaj) so it’s a really nice one to focus on nailing those chord tones with the changes.

You can use A minor pentatonic throughout or the full A minor (aeolian) scale.
