Backing Track: The Hills Of Connemara & Rare Old Mountain Dew

Love these two songs but, because each was so short on its own, I was wondering for a while how I could put them up as backing tracks. So I eventually decided to put them together as a medley! You can hear a demo here:

The inspiration for Rare Old Mountain Dew came from these guys:

Backing Track: Wagon Wheel by Nathan Carter

Another backing track we got a lot of requests for is Wagon Wheel by Nathan Carter. The original version by Old Crow Medicine was great but Nathan has taken it to another level with his own inimitable style.

Check out the backing track here:

Just put up a backing track of Mike Denver’s live version of I Walk The Line/Folsom Prison Blues/Ring Of Fire. You can check it out here:

For comparison, the live performance in question was in Castlebar a couple of years back and you can check it out here:

Also, check out this great Johnny Cash country guitar tutorial that was a big help for the backing track:
