Anyone have any of these? It would be cool to collect together some sort of library of things to play along to.

Cheers,

Hi! I just want to ask if someone of you would know where I could find _free_ backing tracks for drums? Tracks which would include at least bass and guitar. Vocals and other instruments would be a great extra. Thanks.

I find the best way to get this kind of stuff is to actually go looking for example projects for sequencing software. Get the sequencer in question, grab the examples and then... mute the drum tracks. Bingo, instant backing track.

This may seem a bit obvious, but I've seen alot of people asking about drumless tracks and such. I was looking for tracks without drums one day and then it hit me. Why not play with Midi files? I know they arn't real instruments, but they're VERY easy to find and easy to use. Some midi files have drums in them, but just download a program like Calkwalk or Music Creator. Easy. Hope this was helpful to at least one person.

I've seen/heard some people asking about tracks that they can drum to. Well I was looking for stuff like this too, and I finally found a conclusion. Use Midi files. They may not be the best, but they're there, and VERY easily found. Some of them do have drums in them, but all you have to do is download a program like Calkwalk or Music Creator, open it up and delete the drum track. There, now you have a song you know, that you can play along with. To find midi's, just google it. Easy. Works for me.
Hoped this helps at least one person.

Zack.

On a related note, if I put some of these on a CD to play along with, will they work on a standard stereo or boombox, being that they are MP3 files? Or, if not, can they be converted to a standard stereo format? I have no experience with MP3's so I was just wondering. Thanks.

if you get an MP3 Convertor (I suggest MP3 Producer and Winamp does it to) make the files into WAVS burn them to a CD and they should work opn steros and boomboxes and what not

Oops! It doesn't look like either of those programs convert from MP3 to Wav. Only the other way around. Anyway, I did find a free MP3-WAV converter on PCWorld.com, if anyone else is interested.

finnhiggins
08-12-2005, 01:11 AM
Winamp will convert anything it will play as audio to a wave file, you've just got to change the settings so that the output plugin is set to "Nullsoft Diskwriter Plugin" and set an output directory. Then you just play the song (it will do it very fast, and you'll hear no sound) and once it finishes there should be a wave file waiting for you.

Smoky_McPot

Most cd burning software has built in converters, you just select to make an Audio CD and drop mp3 files on it. If you use Windows Media 9 it will also convert .wma

Hey Bernard, I just picked up Vol's. 1 & 2 but they didn't come with a book, nor any tracks with drums. Fess up, that's you on the drums ain't it?

You know... I brought this up a while back under whatever name it was that I cant remember anymore.
I'm just dabbling with drums, although somewhat serious dabbling, but have been a guitar player/bass player and piano player for a long time.
I picked about 5 Tool songs I like a lot, and asked someone (out of hundreds of people here and in several other forums) to find a singer that could lay down something close and similar to Maynard, at least in key, and I would record the 5-6 songs all the way through with a click ( I own a studio here in Louisville) including all double tracking and overdubs, a decent quality production, let the singer do his thing, and then make 2 copies of each song, one with audible clicks, and one without, and send them to everyone that wanted one for like $2 to pay for shipping and media. The thread sat there for awhile and just got bumped away I guess. No bites.
I have several songs I've done this to halfassed, and its fun as hell to play to, and all of my original stuff I have tracked I can mute the drums to and play along with it through headphones. Its pretty cool. I like to set up drums behind my mix station, and sit on the stool, and I can turn around, edit some stuff, press record, and spin on the stool and I'm sitting behind a kit. Pretty fun.
Anyway, I'll still toy with the idea, but now I'm way busier and dont ahve as much time to f*** with it, so...
Anyone interested?

Hello,

A few weeks ago "Phonophunk" posted a link to six playalong songs from Rush. If anybody can send me these files in MP3 format I would be very happy. Off course I want (and really can) trade these files. I have some very nice files to play along.

If you have these songs please mail me.

Those CD's do not come with books only the tracks. Inside the cover is the information of the style of songs.

And whoever is laying down that groove on the drum/in track did a good job dont you think?

I'm a Carter fan as well. I have not found anything on DMB without the drums. But, in your question you asked if there is songs with the drums....so I assume you mean a drum tab......right? I have not found one. But, Carter does have 2 videos out called......"Under The Table And Drumming....Volume 1" and "Under The Table And Drumming....Volume 2." Thats all I have really seen on him.

I don't know if that helps.

I think that in a lot of cases you are going to have to take them out your self but if you can find it I am very sure there is a program that you put on your computer that is like haveing a recording studio on there and you should be able to load the song and take the drums out just like they would do at a recording studio.

a long time ago they used to make tapes and cds like that where they came missing a certon part like drums or guitar and I imagine they still make those as well.

Husky0628
10-12-2005, 08:41 AM
Thanks Raz, I actually screwed up in my typing, it was supposed to be Dave Matthews without The drums. I've known about "Under The Table and Drumming for awhile and I've even gotton a few videos off the internet from them, but moneys been tight and I've never been able to get it. I want the videos bad though, hopefully soon. I still hope I can find some playalong songs to their stuff.

Hi,
Some time ago LDguy posted a link with 2 Dave Weckl's tunes, they were: Island Magic & Garden Wall, both without drums. And these files are really important to me, because I'll probably use them in a selection test, to join an university, that will happen in a month.

But now the links are broken, even though some members of the forum downloaded it in the past. That's why I ask for someone to send me this songs; via E-mail, MSN, etc...

I also would like to share some play-alongs from a cd recorded by Dennis Chambers and Tony Royster Jr. to the whole forum, but unfortunately when I tried to attach the files it didn't work.
So I can trade these files with the one who help me with the Weckl's tunes.

My E-mail is: fabio_ocana@yahoo.com.br

Thanx a lot...

And remember Gary Chester's words: "You strive to be good. But be good is not good enough. You've got to be better."

Not 100% sure, but my friend said go to GC with the CD and they can take out the drums or vocals or anything for a couple bucks (or maybe for free!). Again, I'm not sure.

RMS
05-02-2006, 04:45 PM
You can take vocals out usually by cutting the midrange a lot...I think my fourth grade music teacher had a tape player with a switch to cut vocals, but basically I think it just cut out the mids...for drums I don't see how you would take them out of a normal CD, there's just too many frequencies there, bass, cymbals, snare, there's no way to EQ it out. Unless the drums were very processed to begin with and you had a super duper gazillion band graphic EQ.

I downloaded a couple of drumless Rush tunes...It would be nice if they put a click on it. Even with big headphones it's hard to get any feedback from the song, acoustic drums are just too loud! I guess you just have to synch your own click to it in Cakewalk or something.

Riiiiise from the dead you shall, old thread.

Well you might be able to do 'something' about the drums messing around with the EQ in order to hear them less...It will be tough though cause it will affect the whole track.

If anyone has more of these tracks without drums, please post.

There are hundreds of MIDI big band/jazz songs. There are also thousands of modern popular songs in MIDI format where the drums can be removed. Its pretty easy to take the drums out and then mix the midi into an mp3 ( I do this all the time so as to record my drums with the song ). If your interested, let me know. I can show you how to do this using a software MIDI sequencer.

Where do you find popular songs in MIDI form and what software do you use to edit the drums out and convert to mp3?

Check out Billy Ward's page:
http://www.billyward.com/

Go down to Chart Tawk, and check out the videos of Billy and Barry (gtr player who wrote the songs). You can also download the songs minus drums, and the charts that they talk about.

I don't play a lot of jazz gigs, but it's a great jazz play-along, that I've found has helped with my Rock and R&B playing. Nice variety, track-wise (odd times, 8th note grooves, swing, ballads...) and having the charts is cool too.

I've been recording myself, and have learned a lot from listening back to my grooves with the tracks - pretty cool...

Hi,

I just started studying with a new teacher and he recommended "meet the bass player" by allan cox.

I went out and bought it and its really really good. Drumless tracks with double bass and some sort of funny guitar.

Its aimed at jazz and blues players mainly. They play a number of 12 and 32 bar blues songs at different BPMs. It starts at 40 BPM (I like practising at this tempo, it really helps me focus) but goes right up to like 300 BPM.

Theres even a count in at the beginning of each track.

They also do one track in 3/4 and one in 5/4.

Its a great cd and much more fun than practising to the metronome. You should check it out.

Chris.

I'd be interested in learning how to do this.

Where do you find popular songs in MIDI form and what software do you use to edit the drums out and convert to mp3?

I googled, "Free MIDI Songs", and a ton of sites came up.
Here is one for starters that contains popular music, etc.

http://www.freemidi.org/

There are others that have a ton of great Jazz MIDIs as well. I don't do much with the pop songs.

Pat Petrillo's Hands, Grooves and Fills DVD comes with a book and an mp3 disc of play alongs. The play alongs are my fav part.

As does Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials. Haven't heard the Pat Petrillo stuff, but the Groove Essential play-alongs are the best I've ever heard (and there's like 50 of them). Many different styles, with charts.

So, how much would you pay for a custom-created play-along track of any song you want? $5?

And to whomever has trouble hearing the music through headphones while playing, get some good over-the-ear headphones from GC, or some in-ear monitors (M-Audio makes pretty good ones for, like, $60. Those iPod earbuds usually won't cut it.

I posted this on another forum, but I figured some guys here might be interested as well. :)

Yea, so these are the drumless tracks I was talking about in my other thread (http://www.sputnikmusic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=557180). They're all just loops from GarageBand that are looped for 4-6 minutes. Some have multiple tempos. All the files in the zip file can be seen here:
http://img239.imageshack.us/img239/113/99791384kw8.jpg

Hopefully you guys are happy with the ones I chose... I basically just chose whichever ones I liked. There aren't too many slower tempos (but 120 can be played at 60) mostly because if you slow a track down in GarageBand it gets all distorted and poopty.

And I only ended up making one "song," but I have a feeling it's gonna be kinda awkward to drum along to.


So yea, enjoy? I might upload a track or two on soundclick or something if people are hesitant in downloading such a big file without hearing anything first.

They are easy to find, you can buy the drum along cds at Guitar Center. I have two tracks at myspace site: http://www.myspace.com/drumtime Both are of Mississippi Queen, the first track is with drums but no vocals, the 2nd tune is with no drums and vocals, that is where you come in..add you own beat or play as close as possible to it.

I have plenty of tracks with no drums on them..

http://www.drumless.com/

It's a collection of different sites that offer drumless downloads. Not all of them are free, so you'll have to go through and check them all. I know one of them has about a hundred or so, but only shows the song title and not the artist. Also, most of these are re-makes of the originals, and usually sound better.

This is a brilliant idea and wouldn't be too hard. Just open up a song in practice mode for the drums and not play anything. If you have a means of recording audio from your TV or an AV source[The console] this is very doable.

10-15-2008, 11:24 AM
Great post indeed; the first thing I noticed when I saw the list was that there were a lot of songs on there that are also from the video game RockBand. There is a practice mode where you can play any of the songs from the game as drummer and basically it plays the entire song for you without the drum tracks. This is why some of the songs on the list are not originals, but remakes because various artists actually played the songs, not all of the original bands. Regardless, it's a great idea and i am trying to figure out exactly what i need in order to do this since i have both RB 1 & 2. Also, the songs are not all MP3's they are Mpegs 3 and 4 if that helps any.
The following songs were not part of the DL pack. Could you send those to me please?

Regarding drumless track archives there is a torrent here containing lots of tracks here:

http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/5486724/Drumless_music_tracks

And I there is a great tutorial on how to record tracks from music games (rock band & guitar hero) WITHOUT the instrument of your choosing. i.e you can record it without the drum track or without the guitar track or both etc. You can find that here:

http://www.guitarherorepair.com/playing-real-instruments-to-your-favourite-gh-tracks

Hopefully the archive of drumless tracks will start to grow even more!

Nice forum anyway!

I am currently working with Bobby Parrs from bobbysbackingtracks.com (http://www.bobbysbackingtracks.com). I have been providing drums tracks for all of his latest releases. I have to say, hands down, his tracks minus the drums, are the best I have heard so far. You should REALLY check them out!! He has, some GREAT masterpiece drum tunes. Steely Dan, Toto, Sting.....Real good stuff!

Hope you take the time to check it out. It will be worth your while!!

theres some drumless tunes at wikiloops.com (http://www.wikiloops.com),
just set the minus-drums filter in the search engine and see what pops up. Mostly simple stuff, (no famous covers) but non-midi, which I definetly prefer.

There has got to be tracks without drumming to popular songs heard on radio..pearl jam stuff, Nirvana, Bob Segar..

There are legal issues with that type of thing. But http://www.drumfun.com (http://drumfun.com) does have lots of tracks that are similar to popular songs you're looking for - and some of the jazz stuff someone else was asking about. There's a new release call Prog Metal X that was recently used in the Sam Ash drummer competition with some killer tracks on it. The best ROCK songs are on Turn It Up & Lay It Down Volume 3 and Prog Metal X.

I see quite a few people on this thread asking for jazz playalong tracks. Rather than use a playalong, I prefer to play with songs/albums with no drums. In general the quality of the music is much better and more interesting to play along with. One of my favorites right now is an album with Christian McBride, Roy Hargrove, and Stephen Scott called "Parker's Mood" which is all Charlie Parker tunes. Check out this video of me playing along:

http://haredrums.blogspot.com/2011/12/transitions.html

Another really obvious source of great drumless music would be the Oscar Peterson trio CDs with Herb Ellis on guitar. Here is the album:

Thank you, Peter

QUOTE=paul c;491312]Hey everybody.

mp3 tracks with the drums removed can be very useful and a hell of a lot of fun to play with, but are invariably difficult to find, as we all know. I was lucky enough to get my hands on around 70 or so good quality drumless backing tracks recently from a forum, and Id hate to have to keep them to myself!
In a nutshell, heres the list of titles that I have, if you fancy taking one or two off my hands, dont hesitate to message me ill send em to ya! :) enjoy!

Hey, everyone! I have a question about a play-along, that called "Piano Jazz Jam Drumless.mp3". Where is it from? Is it Pete Riley's minus?
I need to know who's author of the melody or who's playing piano there. It's for an audition.

Please, please, please!

I always just use the Buzz machines tracker. I even programmed a plugin that would generate randomized variations on melodies.

It's pretty easy to get a bass synth track going on a loop.
