Audio tracks

iRealPro is a very useful $12.99 app for viewing and generating chord charts for that also plays many styles of backing tracks. I use it everyday and recommend it to all my students. Important: iRealPro files only work when they are downloaded on a device that already has the iRealPro app installed.
