Guitar Backing Tracks

As the name implies, these links are for people who are interested in downloading backing tracks from their favorite songs. What are backing tracks? I’m glad you asked. Backing tracks are simply rhythm tracks. They’re designed to help you develop your chops and are a great tool for helping you hone your lead phrases and develop your improvisation skills. Special thanks to bobo808 and cricketrider for turning me on to both these sites.


GT member, bobo808, brought this very useful resource from to my attention. Got a song with a key that is unmanagable, but you’re unsure how to change it. This handy tool does the job for you.

Here’s another great resource. This one is brought to you by ENJOY!

UPDATE!!!! It was recently brought to my attention by two of our charter members that this page doesn’t display properly in Internet Explorer. If you’re deadset on using the I.E. browser, and have experienced issues with using this page, it is suggested that you update to the latest version of I.E. and enable your Java SE Runtime Environment add-on. Doing so should allow you to use this page. However, you should note that FireFox offers the best viewing and usage experience on this site. You can download the latest version of that browser here.

Thank you.
