Guitar Backing Tracks
I have created a search engine to find free guitar backing tracks, check it out below and let me know what you think.
It takes whatever you’re searching for and tries to bring back pages that contain backing tracks for guitar songs. Ones you can actually listen to, or download as mp3.
I was spending a bunch of time going to each website to see if they had the track I was after, and you’re probably like me… when you’ve got some time to be playing your guitar you don’t want to be spending time playing your computer.
How to use it
Type in any artist or song name into the search box… and click “search”
Example: fade to black
These free backing tracks are great for just jamming over. Load up an effects program, Guitar Rig is my favorite but Garageband will do I guess, hook your guitar up; use a USB interface or an adapter plugging directly into your line-in. Then your good to go.
It’s good to learn a few solos, or songs note for note but I mainly use these tracks for practice – you just need to find the key the song was written in and then start messing around.
Post the sites you use to find backing tracks in the comments and I’ll add them to the engine.
