I ran across a site with backing track mp3s for quite a few old standards, if anyone has been looking for those to jam against.

I tagged it as a shortcut to get to it. That is a SWEET find. > One practices day in and day out > I need backtracks to find out where I am on my instrument> playing along to backtracks lets me know if I am ready or not. It sometimes takes me places I never considered before. > SWEET FIND!!! >> ROCKs!!!

This is great, Daniel.

Thanks for the link. I bookmarked it for later reference, will definitely need some of these in the future.

Thanks for posting it.

thumbs-up

Thanks!!

 

I have found much happiness with the iRealb app on my laptop (especially the practice bar option). 

Maybe redundant post, but will stick a link in here to just one of the lists of backing tracks...

Probably cool, but since I don't use a call phone or a Mac, I'll probably stick with the simpler internet lists.  LOL
