Tempo Change With Drum Tracks Songwriting Exercise

Jul 25, 2021 | Exercises

Free drum tracks with no augmentation are a great way to change up your songwriting.

They’re also a fantastic way to practice accompaniment in a song, getting down a new groove if you’re a guitar player, writing something outside the box or just getting better with your timing and ability to play with a drummer.

I’ve also added a virtual metronome at the bottom of the page in case you want something to practice with on a regular basis. Timing matters when you’re delivering a song, as well as how you use tempo to create intentional differentiation with half-time or other tempos in different song parts like your verse and chorus.
