Adam Marko  /  UPDATED Aug 19, 2022

Here’s something special for all you prog heads out there! Adam Marko from the band Special Providence was kind enough to provide us with a play-along version of their track “Awaiting” from their 2015 album Essence Of Change. The song includes elements of rock, metal, and progressive music.

As with most play-alongs, we recommend you experiment and come up with your own ideas to compliment the music. Use the song chart as a guide!
