Rock'n Roll Backing Track

Johnny Be Goode is a classic rock'n roll song that everyone has heard, I bet. It's a great and simple tune to play as well. My latest backing track for practicing is very much inspired by Johnny Be Goode. 

As a lame joke (I have many of those), I gave it the title "Billy Was Bad"... :) I know, it's bad.

The track is very simple, it's just a 12 bar blues progression played similar to how Johnny Be Goode is played. The track doesn't have any fancy drum fills or a lot of variation, but again, it's just for practice.

I have used this track with my students, and they enjoy playing it very much. I have some lead ideas I first demonstrate to them and have them learn to play over this track. It's a fun way to learn some simple lead riffs that you can then later use in other songs too.

This rock'n roll backing tracks is now posted on my blues backing tracks page. Look for the cheesy title "Billy Was Bad"!

Let me know your thoughts on this simple backing track. I think it may be useful to have a slower version of it too? It might be a tad fast for someone who is new to this.
