Guitar Backing Track – Blues in A minor

The latest Guitar Scales YouTube backing track - and one of our favourites. Play along to this guitar backing track using A minor pentatonic or blues scales (or any other scales or arpeggios that sound good!).

This is a really enjoyable track to play over. It is a slight variation to the traditional blues because in this track all of the chords are minor - giving the track a laid-back funk / soul feel rather than out-and-out blues. It is also a good track with which to practice picking technique, as it is in a challenging but manageable tempo for playing sixteenth note (semiquaver) runs over.
