So now let’s get the backing track going and play along! If you need to you can have the song structure and chord diagrams in front of you, but ideally you will be so familiar with the song, you know what’s coming next and can relax and enjoy it – whilst focusing on that even strum, rhythm and timing.
Remember: If the backing track it too challenging for you in terms of maintaining either the tempo or the even strumming pattern, then start the week with just a metronome and the correct tempo, so you really nail it! This is definitely more challenging than it might first seem, so take your time.
