      Quick Guide to Mixing Your Own Learning Tracks using SkyTracks

      Each voice-part has its own TWO tracks that contain all the notes of that part.
      To create a personalized Vocal Part Track for this arrangement, you should click the S button (for "Solo") on your TWO tracks listed below.

      To create a Minus-One Track (which removes everything in your part, allowing you to practice filling in the missing notes like you will in your ensemble), you should click the M button (for "Mute") on your TWO tracks listed below.

      To create an Accompaniment Track (which I usually call a "Rhythm Track"), you should click the S button (again, for "Solo") on the Guitar, Piano, Electric Bass and Drums tracks.

      In addition...

      For Part Tracks, you may wish to also SOLO the Metronome Track to help you keep time
      Or, you may wish you SOLO any combination of the Guitar, Piano, Electric Bass and/or Drums tracks, for reference as you listen to and learn your isolated vocal part.

      Practice singing the vocal solo part by MUTING the top, red track called "Vocal Solo" and filling that in yourself!

      To hear a mix of only the vocal parts, MUTE the guitar, piano, electric bass and drums tracks.
      Play around with more subtle variations in the mix to help you practice your parts by controlling the VOLUME SLIDER (often called a "fader"), which is just below each track's name (in color).

      Work toward singing without your part being supported at all (to gain part-singing independence) by starting with all the parts at full volume (which is, rather weirdly, called "0dB" in the world of live sound and recording technology), and then, on each successive practice, moving your TWO tracks to the left a bit until you've turned them off entirely. 

      OK, SO WHICH TRACKS ARE MINE?
