Tascam Trainer

♫ Kit Nelson is a multitalented performer, and has been playing music professionally since 1959. He is a guitarist, bassist, singer and songwriter. Kit has done a great deal of home recording, using Sonar 8 to lay down instrumental and vocal backing tracks. His finished products are often used to accompany his voice and guitar while performing as a solo artist.

His presentation to the Rochester Guitar Club will demonstrate how he produces the instrumental backing tracks he uses as a solo performer.
