Fill up your jamm sessions with BACKING TRACKS or as some call it filler background.
Support a song melodically throughout its performance—in fact, pretty much every time your lead singer shuts his mouth.
The key element here is the fill, an instrumental phrase played between vocal lines. Fills serve to provide filler—hence the name—in the moments when the song needs a melodic focal point, due to the absence of a vocal line. When placed effectively, fills can heighten a song’s intensity. For this reason, guitarists tend to fill more frequently as a song progresses, usually starting in the second verse.
