      Anybody want to check the J&J Waltz guitar backing track?
      I play along with the Casey Willis video OK,
      but when I go to play with the guitar track, it ends before I’m done with the song! 🙂

      Is it just me??

      Thanks 🙂

      Hi, Thistle. I’m out at a festival right now but will take a listen to the track when I get back to the studio next week…I’ll get the right track up if the one currently available doesn’t match up with the performance…thx for the heads up!

      And, thanks for the great clear teaching videos, am learning a lot! 🙂

        Hi, again, Thistle. Back from festival land, and I took a listen.

        The guitar track matches what was played during the performance. It’s two times through the melody (A & B parts) and then it repeats a 4 measure tag of the B part. So there are 4 measures tacked on to the end which slows/rit. Does that help?

        For those last four bars of the repeated tag line, the melody starts in the preceding measure on the third finger on the A string (D note) and walks up using the open E string to the first finger on the E string (F# note). The D and E notes fall prior to the tag. That first finger F# note is the down beat of the first of four tag measures.

        I felt like adding the tag in the performance was a nice way to end the tune – sorry for the confusion. Just let me know if that description doesn’t get you to a solid finish line.

        All the best, and thanks for the kind words!
