    Thanks for the link, that's excellent. The MP3 download feature is cool...I can load them on my Walkman and plug it into the Vox Amplug to play along. Very cool.

    i LOVE that site!! i discovered it about 4 months ago and have downloaded and jammed with hundreds of their tracks. just totally awesome.

    my only complaint is that it's weak on the blues and country.

    hmmm...wonder if i could do that? it would be a challenge. laying down bass and rhythm guitar parts would be no problem, but how would i do the drums?

    It depends on what kind of setup you've got. There's full featured drum software like this, and there's freeware I've seen, but don't recall the name. I use to have a drum machine but never took the time to learn more than the basics and ended up selling it. I've also got a Boss RC-2 Loop Station that has drum beats in it.

    Then again, it depends on what you have available for recording too. There's freeware like Audacity that will give you the basics you need for multi-track recording.

    i've never played around with it much, but since i'm on a Mac and have Garage Band, maybe that might help.

    I'd think Garage Band would have some sort of drum setup in it. :?:

    I've got Band in a Box and have yet to figure it out. :confused:

    Thanks for posting this, it's a great resource.

    I've found huge collections of backing tracks, thousands, sort-of available through.. channels often used for other MP3 files. There are also a LOT on Amazon for download, you can search on "backing" or "without guitar", sometimes "without electric guitar".

    Of course they're not free, but if they have what you need, 89 or 99 cents a track is not bad, and they're encoded at 256k, so the quality is better than... MP3 files from a lot of other sources.
