Pick a style, mute the guitar track,start at a slow tempo, and practice your chords with that backing track.

Start simple, say a three chord blues.

Play one fingering until you are comfortable with it. Repeat it in all keys, transpose is your friend here.

Then repeat the process using another fingering until you have mastered them all.

Then start mixing chord fingerings using as little movement as you can with your fretting hand.

I hope this helps.

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

There's probably a way to set things up in BiaB. I would start by entering individual notes on the staff (in edit mode) that correspond to the notes in the CAGED system for a single chord -- say C for example -- and see where that gets me.

Or you could go visit YouTube and watch the several videos on the subject. Here's a good one:

And over on the right side of the screen you'll see a bunch of videos on the same subject. Plenty to watch.

Try this,

Set up a chord sequence of five bars with each chord sequentially laid out, C C C C C, A A A A A, G G G G G, E E E E E and finally D D D D D. For each bar play the corresponding chord in a different position on the neck. Set a slow tempo

Then play the corresponding arpeggio over each bar.

Then play the corresponding pentatonic scale over each bar in each of the five positions.

Then play the corresponding mode in each position.

Then increase the tempo and repeat. grin
