Drumless Tracks and Charts – Jazz Swing and Bossa Nova-Samba Trading Fours and Eights Big Bundle



A complete Drumless tracks bundle for trading fours and eights

Here’s a value bundle that includes all of the Jazz Swing and Bossa Nova and Samba Practice Systems drumless tracks + all of the drum charts for a great price! Save over 20% on hours of fun while you practice your soloing and improve your creativity, timing and reading ability!

What is trading fours and eights?

In Jazz, we often trade solos between the drums and other instruments. These solos are either 4 or 8 measures. For example, the piano may play a 4-measure solo and then the drums will play a 4-measure solo. This is called “trading.”

Mix options for all drumless tracks

When to start and stop your drum solos is usually the hardest thing in learning to trade fours and eights.  This drumless tracks bundle has 3 mix options for each song to help you correct and master this.

  1. One mix, is with the bass playing straight through your solo time.  This helps you to know clearly where you start and end your fours and eights.
  2. There are also mixes that have no bass during the drum fours and eights.  This will help you develop better internal time and timing in your soloing and overall playing.
  3. Yet another mix is with only bass from the beginning to the end of the song. This will allow you to stretch out and play extended drum solos helping you develop solo ideas.

Use these drumless tracks for soloing in other styles

This drumless track bundle includes Swing and Bossa Nova and Samba styles of Jazz.  You can practice your fours and eights in a triplet-based Swing style and straight-eights Bossa Nova style.  Learning in these two different feels will help you solo over many other styles of music.

Includes drum charts (drum sheet music)

Each of the songs in this bundle also come with drum sheet music or “drum charts” as they are commonly called. One of my goals with all of my products, is for you to feel comfortable playing in real music situations.  This includes at rehearsals, on the bandstand or in the studio.

Drum charts are an important part of performing music.  Most of the best paying gigs have drum charts, so being prepared to read them is an important skill.  These charts give you the roadmap for each song and some have music hits or “kicks” to play with the band.

Be the best you can be!

Use these charts to get the most out of your practice and be the best you can be on the drums! It’s a complete practice system to take you Jazz playing to a new level.
