Red Haired Boy rhythm tracks

Thanks to the suggestion of a reader named Betsy, I have started at a lower tempo for these rhythm tracks. Basically, I did what I usually do, and then added tracks at 150bpm, 160bpm, and 170bpm. Hopefully, these lower tempos will help out.


Here's some Youtubes of the song:

  12. Is it just me, or are the 180 bpm and 190 bpm versions reversed?

  15. I like the way you play the rhythms very clearly and with different tempos. For me it is a good training and a good background for my solos to play bluegrass.

    Thank you very much
