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.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

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

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
