There’s nothing magic about playing back-up. It must be practiced! Jam sessions have a spontaneous feel, but you can be sure that those who appear to be playing with abandon have spent plenty of time honing their chops. If there’s a session tune you love, work out a back-up plan so you’re ready to spring into action!
The thrill of knowing a tune that’s being played in a group setting can quickly turn to boredom after you’ve played it through the umpteenth time. What to do?
- Know the tune
- Know the chord progression
- Know how to play chord patterns
- Know the rhythm of different types of tunes
- Work out your ideas and practice them
- Have fun!
