Default Play along tracks

Does anyone know any sites where I can download free play along tracks or backing tracks (minus drums) or something? I'd really like to play along to some songs

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.

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.

Default Drumless Tracks

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/s...d.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.

Default Re: Drumless Tracks

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..

drum on..

Talking about backing tracks and stuff, does anyone know this song at all?

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=adpxVnMXjNo

I'd love to be able to source that song and have a bash at it myself?

Default Re: Free Drumless Track Downloads?

I get all of mine from this site...

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.

Will try that when I get home. :)

There are many I would like to have. Question is, are they the actual mp3's edited to take away drums or are they remakes?

Also, it would be awesome if you uploaded them to some sort of file sharing site, then we could get them from you a lot easier.

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if this one of those time where something is too good to be true......but I clicked on the links and Ok’ed the download and everything appeared to be ok. However, when it was complete it wanted to open the files as an adobe file. Any advice would be great.
Thanks,

your defaults are probably just set wrong, no big deal. the files are WINRAR archives, so youll need to right click, say "Open with",,, and choose either WINRAR or WINZIP archiver, and choose a location.

awesome. thanks for sharing that. it is very hard to find drumless backing tracks to play along just for fun of it or for the exercise. i know it cause am a frequent play along guy and got almost sick of playing along to bass loops, original tracks or some crap that i have laid down just to back the drums up. :)

cheers.
