Piano backing tracks for jazz
These backing tracks for jazz gives you a chance to improvise on the piano by using major and minor scales.
Backing tracks are music arrangements that can be used for play along with. And here you got an possibility to play along in a very easy way since common scales are used. The Jazz Piano Backing Tracks album includes instrumental tracks made specially for jazz piano. The only prior knowledge you need is major and minor scale. You can still use these backing tracks without knowing the scale by clicking on "Show scale", which make the relevant scale visible.
You don't have to change scales with chord changes. Instead, you can use a single scale for the whole song (a tip is although to listen and be restrictive with some notes that seems to collide with the notes in the chords that are played; for example, the fourth note in the major scale will often not sound very good over a major chord). To make it a little more sophisticated and jazzier, you can involve other scales and one simple approach is to use chromatic scales (especially in bebop, chromatic notes are used a lot).
In coming updates, licks to use will also be presented.
