Backing Tracks for Drumming Contest

Hit Like a Girl, the third annual drumming contest for female percussionists, opens January 24. Entrants must provide a three-minute video showcasing their skills.

The contest provides optional backing tracks, but the library offers many more options with our drum play-along collection. You can browse the catalog for the drum play-along series or just browse the shelves at MT662.5.

The collection includes books by single artists, from Bob Marley (MT662.5 .D7 v. 25) to Rush (MT662.5 .R86 2009), and genre books such as big band (MT662.5 .D7 v. 9), funk (MT662.5 .D7 v. 5) and '90s rock (MT662.5 .D7 v. 6). Each book comes with a CDs for all the songs, each one with a drum demonstration and separate backing track. Some CDs have as a special feature that you can adjust the tempo when playing them on a computer.

So go show 'em what you (and Berklee) got. You could win lots of cool percussion gear and some bragging rights.
