Default Drum Accompaniment Tracks - Where do you go?

Firstly, allow me to introduce myself as I am new to the threads, but not to Drummerworld. My name is Austin and I'm from Houston, TX. I come from a rudimentary background playing in the middle school band, drumline in high school, and now kit off-and-on for the past couple of years at college.

My question to you guys is: where do you get your drum accompaniment tracks? (If you use them)

I would love some: solid bass line tracks, funk, blues, jazz, rock. Anything instrumental that you guys love to play along with.

Everything you got basically, I love playing to tunes with a good vibe.

Thanks! I look forward to becoming a member of the community.

-Austin

I started out in the 80s with the MIDI thing and created a lot of my own MIDI tracks at the time that I still use to this day. There are people who have access to actual recordings without drums, but I would think they're few and far between. Perhaps you can do google searches for "Tracks without drums?" There are a few ready-to-buy instructional packages too.

I play along to songs on my iPod. It's fun, but sometimes frustrating cuz you feel like there's nothing to play lol.

Groove Essentials 1 & 2 (by Tommy Igoe) include MANY drumless tracks from many genres.

For popular music, you can make your own if you have the Rock Band and/or Guitar Hero (4+, any version with playable drums) games. Hook you game system's audio-out to your PC's audio-input/mic-in, and go into drum practice mode (but don't actually play anything), and record the audio output on the PC (using audacity or any other audio software).

Most lessons book now have play along tracks.

I also find that most of the time I can play along to regular recording and not be bothered by the recorded rums when I am making up my own part.

Awesome links you guys! I found some really great stuff, I appreciate it.

I remember an old drum instructor of mine had kind of a jazzy/funk track that started at a moderate pace and then progressively worked up the tempo. We used it to warm up, we would play 7-6-8 on a hand to it; made a boring warm up incredibly entertaining!

Does anyone have something like that laying around?

You are talking about "drumless tracks" and the place to go is

www.resource4drums.com

they have a forum etc so you have to join (free) but there are literally hundreds of drumless tracks there including all the tommy igoe stuff and everything from Gage to Zep (I choose the latter).

I downloaded something like 160 tracks the other day. Hard to believe some,one hasnt driected you there yet although this has been covered many times here (search for what you ar elooking for before posting).

When you say "Drum accompany track" people are probably thinking you mean a track with ONLY drum loops for guitarists/pianists/etc to play along with.

The search function isn't so great. I tried to find the recent Elm Snare thread and searching "elm" returned no results, " "elm snare" " returned lots but not the one I was looking for.

Haven't heard of that resource4drums site before and it looks great!
