    I have recently started taking lessons and I need some help.

    Does anyone have a 12 bar blues backing track in A?

    Specifically one with the following progression:

    A----D----A----A
    D----D----A----A
    E----D----A----E

    I need to play along with something at home and this would help greatly.

    Thanks in advance.

    BTW I have been learning how to work the 3rd into the blues scale for each chord.

    How about a $20 radio shack hand held cassette recorder?

    The lesson sounds like a great idea.

    If you can manage it, the best "backing track" by a mile is finding some other player at (or even better, a step or two above) your level to swap the lead back and forth. A buddy of mine and I pretty much pissed away our younger years doing this, but hey, it really works.

    Yeah this is what my lessons are like. I also play in a band but I was looking for a backing track so I can play at home without someone else.
