Description

Drumless Jazz tracks practice tool

These drumless Jazz tracks are an important tool for your drum practice. If you want to really improve your Jazz trading fours and eights on the drums, these tracks will help you get there fast.

What is trading fours and eights?

Drumming trading fours and eights is when other instrumentalists in the band trade solos with the drummer. The solos are 4 or 8 measures long each.  This usually continues for 1 or 2 choruses of the Jazz tune.

This collection of drumless Jazz tracks includes chords only versions of some classic Jazz standards that you are likely to encounter on the bandstand.  Each song has long trading fours and eights sections to give you ample opportunity to work on your creativity and timing.

What’s included in these drumless Jazz tracks?

This drumless Jazz tracks collection came at the request from my drumming4life.com subscribers. This is a powerful drum practice tool that will quickly improve your timing and creativity in a real musical context. With this collection you have 6 Jazz Standard songs complete with intros, heads, last choruses and multiple choruses of drums trading fours and/or eights with the soloist.

There are 3 mix versions:

  1. With bass playing during the drums fours and eights
  2. No bass playing during the drums fours and eights
  3. Bass only for the entire song

Recommendations for using these drumless Jazz tracks

Start off with the bass playing during your drumming fours and eights. When you are comfortable, move to the second mix option and see how your timing is without the bass playing during your fours and eights.  This is a HUGE challenge and the MOST EFFECTIVE way to quickly improve your internal time.

The third option is so you can solo for entire choruses of the song.  Soloing with a walking bass is one of my favorite ways to solo. The video below demonstrates how to use this practice system in your drum practice.
