Default Backing Tracks

Where are folks getting drum less backing tracks? Preferably for free just hanging out there?

I generally have no problems playing along to a full release on my iPod, but I want to

1. "Fly solo" and rely on my own creativity and sense of time instead of the recorded drummer

2. Mix my "own" songs, so I can kind of keep track of my general improvement playing with a backing ensemble.

I generally play any sort of rock from the 50's to the 90's, and would like any sort of jazz standards to just improve my time. Nothing esoteric.

do a search on youtube for drumless tracks, thousands of options shall appear.
if your net savvy there are ways to download the tracks to your computer/ipod for later use.

I am a big fan of this channel. very good tracks that allow you to be creative over a basic idea. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6y...nVqB5OwlY4QdRQ
