Now it's time to play through our PT up to speed with the backing track. Even if you have all the parts down it's really important that you just watch and listen at least a couple of times before you start playing along yourself, so that you can fully take in how I build up and breakdown the intensity in the different sections.

I hope you've enjoyed learning this practice tune and that you feel ready and prepared to accompany a singer all by yourself. The most important thing to remember is to keep it simple and groovy. If your rhythm is solid and you're not playing too much, it's hard to go wrong. Then from thereon you have a whole bunch of fun tools to use to carefully build on that foundation. Just don't let them distract you from the real goal, which is always to make the singer feel, sound and look good. When we play solo guitar arrangements we get to be the star, but whenever you accompany a singer you're the support! And that's a ton of fun too. I personally like that much better than being the main center of attention. Regardless, of your spotlight preference, backing up a singer is an important and extremely rewarding.
