Blues Backing Tracks - Minor Keys

Relative Minor Blues Backing Tracks

Chip Gibbons

Fun 12-bar-blues backing tracks in all the relative minor keys, in two tempos for practice and improvisation.

It's way more fun to practice and improvise to backing tracks instead of that boring monotonous metronome. This album allows you to practice or improvise in all relative minor keys at two tempos. If you don't know what relative minor is it's the minor scale this has its root a minor third below the root of a major scale. For example: the relative minor for C major is A minor, and it uses the same notes as the C major scale but has a very different (and minor) sound.

You can play through these tracks in the album order or create your own playlists so that you can play through them in the order that works best for you. Regardless what instrument you play these tracks are great for:

  • Practicing and improvising on all the relative minor scales.
  • Learning the 1, 4, and 5 chords in all the relative minor scales and all their inversions.
  • Learning different ways of expressing the chords like arpeggios, or block chords.
  • Try practicing/improvising using the minor pentatonic scale.
  • There's a lot of space in these backing tracks so you can let your imagination take you where it leads.
