Recommend some backing track websites

Post by Benrocky »

Out there in the interwebz there is a shiteload of backing track sites.

Recommend me some of your personal favourites, or advice on what to avoid.

Cheers :)

I have 22 backing tracks that I can send on CD to people. They came from GuitarCenter's King of the Blues competition a couple of years ago (the wrong guy won, but that's another story).

If you mean Gino Matteo, I disagree, he is awesome http://www.ginomatteo.com/video/

Hmmmm ... that's not the name of the person that I thought won it in 2008 ... maybe I have it wrong.

Anyway, here's a link to the latest 25 tracks on the GuitarCenter website http://gc.guitarcenter.com/kingoftheblues/tracks.cfm

YouTube is, in my opinion, the best place for backing tracks...Search for what you want and you're bound to find one you like

I have found the songs with II or III etc after them are usually straight from rockband or guitar hero so have all the original instruments/vocals....its pretty cool playing crazy train and having ozzy sing on it
If Less is More Then Just Think How Much More More would be
