    Three choices this week from different places. I was trying to find a good Robert Johnson backer but all I got was a headache. If anyone knows of a good place to find interesting backing tracks for free or even a little money for a collection of songs, I would appreciate getting a link. Actually that would be cool for everyone I think. I'm posting early because of the Mothers Day crush. So here we go
    choice 1

    choice 2

    choice 3

    Just did a quick search for delta blues backing tracks !
    Is this similar to what you’re looking for?

    Yes this is the style but I was looking for a downloadable track, also a website which has a bunch of downloadable interesting material. I looked for about an hour this morning and I got lots of places where I had to register and then when I did the tracks were not downloadable. Thanks for looking though. I bought a calalog from Elevated Jam Tracks but after a while the tracks all sound the same. I would love to find something similar with some jazz and funk and older material and would be willing to pay for it if it was $20 or so.

    check out these young blokes from the Netherlands...

    this isn't delta blues (hard to find backers for music that's most often one person and their guitar) but they have close to 60 backing tracks, multlple styles, pop, jazz, blues,

    much less dead sounding than the average tracks..

    it's pretty easy to make a downloadable mp3 from a youtube...

    If I may say so, it sounds like a master is getting back in the groove.

    @montemerrick Thank you so much, I found a You Tube to MP3 converter and it works perfectly. I will be able to get all sorts of great material for jams now. Again if anyone wants to take this over just let me know. I don't want to hog the fun. Or just post your tracks with mine. I have no problem with that. Maybe just label it clearly so that everyone knows it is a backer. Thanks again
