I have spent a LOT of time playing my guitar lately. Yay!!!!!!!

I am running out of backing tracks. Boo!!!!!!!

Please post links to your favorites. Here are some of mine.

This one's good for leaning back and ripping up the bridge pup: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI3ZN_WDJhY

More of the previous mood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pz6B4r74z4c&feature=related

I love this blues track with the neck pup at 50% tone pot. RandomJammer is good stuff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCYnPrw14-g&feature=relmfu

And last but not least, this is my "go to" blues track when I'm feelin' all happy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ef-wGEn_NjE&feature=fvwrel

Happy blues? Weird.

This one is a blast with bell-tones and harmonics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQ3A_DHtLQU

Clapton's Old Love: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpNuxQzSnr8

Whatchoo looking fo'?For members to post links to some of their favorite backing tracks. I don't want to make this genre-specific.

You know, I should have read this more closely. I was thinking of the thread I made for MAKING people backing tracks to jam to. This is a different flavor.

That being said, I do have some -- I'll have to post up later once I find them.

Thanks for these!!!!! I love jamming to blues tracks. I have to admit I didn't even think to search YouTube for Backtracks. I always think of YouTube more as a Video Resource, thank you for opening my eyes.

I am loving this one right now with my SAS on the neck pup (split 53/10) and super clean EL84 tone.

That's really nice BT!!!

Shame the guy is passing it off as his own though. It's actually from a british guitar magazine CD from a few years ago. I used it on my Bernie Marsden demo!

really nice track to jam over though.

Here's a few sites:

Thanks so much for posing these links. I'm especially enamored with the guitarbackingtracks.com site. The tracks that are the actual bands songs with the guitars taken out are the most fun :)

A+ thread. Sometimes I just like to throw a track on and just jam. Cutting loose, not trying to practice anything specific or even do anything but just play, you know? The backing tracks dot com site is pretty good as I recall.

Totally forgot about this thread... Always on the look out for new BT's.

Made another of my own to add to the two I posted in this thread a few months back.

Slow blues in Dm. I made this 10 minutes long so there's plenty of jam time.

Probably the last minor blues I do for a while as i'd like to do something a little more upbeat.

If you're looking to scratch the itch for something from the Poodle Skirt era, this one is fun. Fire up the Starla and a clean channel for this one.

How are you guys utilizing the youtube tracks? I only use the web site links, so I can easily download to my phone. youtube sounds like you need a step to convert youtube audio, then put that on your phone?

I posted the YouTube because that was all I could find - some time ago, I downloaded MP3 versions of about 8 Ozzy tracks, including this one. There are sites that will convert YouTube (and some other) videos to downloadable links.

Here is a link to some Joe Bonamassa tracks minus the vocals and lead guitar. It is from the Guitar Center Bluesmaster contest that ends April 30th. Point being, you might need to download soon. Some of them are difficult to solo over because there is a lot going on. Not necessarily your standard blues progressions.

They are now off the site because the contest is over. I downloaded a few of them but can't get the rest either.

Hey Hans, long time no "see". Here's one of my all-time favorites (don't worry, he has a shorter version if you just want a song's worth.) Lots of enjoyment for me with this one.

I don't know about others but I just play them on YouTube in my music room, through the PA/speakers. Then I simply play along with them.
