Free Bird OPB and OPBk-strings

Lynyrd Skynyrd


  • Two versions as backing tracks
  • Why backing tracks instead of BeatBuddy (BB) format songs? There are so many time signature and tempo changes that I found it easier to work these up as backing tracks.
  • What’s the difference between the two versions? The OPB omits the piano and organ intro in the first 15 seconds and the strings later in the song. The OPBk-strings has the piano and organ intro and the strings but is otherwise, pretty much the time.
  • Both versions fade out the outro.

  • See links at bottom of this post for tips, techniques and procedures
