Careless Love > Backing Track

Here's the backing track for "Careless Love." If you play over the vocal stay close to the melody. For fills, short phrases that fit over the changes are all you need. Have the notes in your head and anticipate those notes coming out as you play them. Have fun!

Another wonderful job!  As you get more and more confident with knowing where the notes you hear in your head are on the harp, and it all becomes synchronized, you'll be able to improvise with freedom and confidence. You're going to be a fine player. This makes me happy and proud. Great stuff!

Love the way Jerry & Rick play this one, here's my effort with my new Blue Yeti Mic. :-)


Each chorus took many takes, but I guess the upside is multiple mistakes equals a lot of Reps!

Why is the start up intro. different on the backtrack than on the performance? Thanks

Hi Boyd --- thanks for the question.  Rick plays the intro a bit differently for the backing track, but it is the same song form (i.e. the intro that Jerry teaches will work with what Rick plays).  

I hope that helps and if you have further questions, please let us know.
