So this weekend the family was away I had some time to practice and figure something out that I've wanted to figure out for a while .... how to do both video and add a backing track to it. I'm often torn because I feel like I play better when I have a backing track to play with. But I like video better cause it's easier for people to provide feedback when they can see my playing. I also learn more from people's videos than their audios. So I sat down this weekend to figure out how exactly to add backing tracks to a video. 

One method is that you crank up your computer speakers and play the backing track and record the video at the same time. That works, but your audio is going to be all out of wack and not very balanced. My method is a little complicated and time intensive at first, so it's probably not up everyone's alley, but for those of you who have the time or are interested here's my guide on how to do it on a Mac. Sorry windows, linux users ...
