Ballad In C Major - Jam Backing Track

To help you practice playing lead guitar it's nice to have a piece of music to play over which has the leads removed. That way you can play over the track and add your own leads. Here we provide you with a acoustic ballad jam track in C Major. So playing leads sticking to the C major scale will keep your leads in key and they will sound like they fit the jam track.
