X8 Drums Play-Along Backing Tracks

5th Jul 2020

The new X8 Play-Along Series is being produced for our musician friends wanting a fresh way to work on their technique and ideas. We know that without fresh motivation, it can be hard to keep practicing alone while waiting for "social distancing" to become a distant memory!

Our first Series features the African Rhythm, "Baga Gine." 

Each track in this series is based on the Baga Gine rhythm at a set tempo (110 bpm) that, by design, leaves space for you to try out lead lines or supporting lines using any instrument - including your voice! We've also included relaxing video imagery to keep your wandering eye in check.
