On this page is the video, pdf and practice tracks for the Paul McCartney Style Sight Reading Etude 8.
This is a slightly different Etude….it’s two choruses of the 12 bar quick blues in an 8th note rock and roll style. The kicker though is that the first playthrough on the video uses a harmonic metrome.
If you’ve not come across this before in my work it’s a staccato, chopped guitar chord that sounds on beats 2 and 4. And that’s the ONLY musical element on the practice track apart from a 2 bar count in with side sticks. And that’s what you have to keep time with….so YOU are responsible for the time on beats 1 and 3.
The harmonic metronome playthrough is at 120 BPM, and then after that I do a full performance tempo playthrough at 160 BPM.
Here’s the video of the etude:
