    What a horrible week. Let's just play some music. Freddie Green's birthday was Tuesday...and we lost Bucky yesterday. Just play one chorus of rhythm guitar. Don't even name the tune. Any genre, any style even. Just add to this and keep it going. No skill assessment. Just play. Everybody has a phone. Hit record and keep the rhythm going.

    Perfect.

    C'mon y'all. Phone +youtube. Keep it going, no excuses. Play some rhythm...the nightly news can wait. Itll still be shit in the morning.

    Nice, Jeff. And I recognized the tune (but won't name it, lest it spoil that recognition for others.)

    I just had a thought: next we all could play over these rhythm tracks, head or improvisation. Would be pretty cool.

    I like low tech...probably just play it through a bluetooth speaker on the background. I'll try a sound test in a bit.

    A chorus of an old song of mine called "Pretty Broke Up." Always enjoyed playing the rhythm on this one.

    Sounds like a tune Bobby would sing with the Dead. Love it.

    Thanks, Jeff! I wrote that about a woman I was crazy about but she was crazy about someone else. Just about anybody else, really. But hey, I got a song out of it, so I'm happy about the whole thing.

    Heres one, just sitting in front of phone, I put my rhythm track (playing in browser on my ipad) through my Bose bluetooth speaker and hoped for the best. Pretty balanced for a first take. I think I'll see if anybody else posts rhythm tracks, and I'll challenge myself to do a longer video tomorrow and try playing over a few of them (not at the same time, obviously)

    Another chorus of rhythm, this one for an actual standard, though one normally sung and taken more uptempo. But this is the way I like to play it, more or less. (The bridge is one chord and I didn't do anything with it---because I'm usually singing this when I play it, I never thought I needed to do anything with it!---but I think the rest hangs together well enough.

    Not sure if this is quite within the given parameters, but it’s the nearest thing I’ve got already recorded.

    Attempt to play with a thread clip, rag's very nice bossa. I've never played this tune in Db, in fact, I've played very few tunes in Db... this is not my greatest moment in improvisational music, but it was fun playing along with a forum member.

    Not what you asked for, but what the hell. I had a spare 10 mins

    OK, so taking a page out of the Mr. B. book, I looped mine in GarageBand, then played it back through my bluetooth speaker, played along, and recorded with my phone. Lo-fi enough?

    Hey guys. It's easy to do audio play along with these clips. If you have a tablet or smart phone, just go to the forum on that device and play the clip, using the headphone jack to send the audio to your recording device (if you are using direct lines) and play your guitar into the other. Or of course you can send the audio through a speaker and record with the mic on your phone.
