Hi all! I am now playing Tchaikovsky's Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy (from The Nutcracker suite), and was wandering if anyone here knows how to get the backing track for it, since I find it really hard to keep the tempo of this piece without its musical foundation.

 

Thanks!

Just a thought - there are a number of arrangements to be found on theMuseScoresite.  The MuseScore app itself is freeware.

With MuseScore you can then quickly adapt any existing arrangement - change key, tempo, etc etc, instrument voices for play-along and so on.

And if you have your own score sheet - sure - just enter it in MuseScore - add a drum-click or whatever...

I use it a lot.

Just some thoughts....

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Great idea with MuseScore.com to find the score.
I found one version but it's a bit advanced and slightly different.
You could remove the melody from it and work on it a bit.
I did a search on iTunes and found a Christmas Karaoke Hits album with Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy in it. Doesn't seem great but they have it in any case. 🙂
