I have heard some of you talk about old time fiddle back tracks.   Is this a free service? And does anyone know the link?

Is that what you meant, Toni?

I think Barry was the first person to post that link.  Lot of fun stuff there.

Yeah Barry pointed to that one a while back > It is really a good backup. I use it a lot and you can loop a song if you want it to keep playing when you are trying to learn.

Barry is the Maestro when it comes to that.  I've tried that one, but it usually isn't the arrangement or feel I want, so I end up recording my own.  Great for folks that don't play other instruments or want to record their own backing, or for those where that sound is just what they want, though!

There are options there. Like DanielB said it is a option. I also create my own backtracks but its a great place to hang when you are in need of a backtrack to play. Go for the slow option and it will click > you need to know the tune for it to work > And you can venture off into impro if you know your scales. You can create your own sound. Backtracks are SWEET to jam but you GOTs to know your scales > that is where the Mighty Metronome comes in play.
