    I wasn't sure where to post this. I've been looking for jam tracks sites. I've been holding off on SoundCloud ( many complaints online from people who can't seem to cancel the service. ). Since I'm still learning, I'm mainly interested in jamming alone right now. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. :)

    I find the variety of (free) youtube backing tracks (usually non-song specific in a particular key) pretty vast. I use half a dozen regularly.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/QuistTV/videos is one example. NowYouShred is another.

    If you pay songsterr a fee, you can download backing tracks for well-known songs.
    I have no experience w/SoundCloud.

    I make my own with Jamvox, it allows you to take an audio file and filter out the lead and vocal tracks. It works really well or so-so depending on the mix of the input track. But it's good enough for me. Also you can re-record your takes and make vids with your webcam if you like. There's no more valuable practice than watching yourself. Here's one I did with Jamvox a few years back. I need to go back and clean it up.

    YouTube is your best bet. Just use any one of dozens of free sites to convert the audio to an MP3 file.

    Thanks man, I need to get back on it myself. JV is also pretty handy for prototyping new material too. Not really so much for authoring a high quality mix but sometimes ya just need to pick up the instrument and knock out a couple of tunes without all the hassle. If they have promise then we'll bring 'em to the band and see what happens.:)

    I think you can download a trial version. Sometimes it takes a bit of fiddling to get the extraction right. Again a lot does depend on how the input track was mixed, some tracks are more difficult, others are pretty easy. I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of it though.

    You can listen to as many as you want or you can download up to 3 a day. Any cover we do in our band, I have a downloaded backing track for it to practice that way you aren't getting distracted with guitar or lyrics since I only use the ones with bass and drums.
