Where can I find free backing tracks?

Asked by Steve_A (5120points) February 14th, 2010

I know there are backing tracks for cover songs I have found websites for these and loops for drums/instruments.

I am looking more specifically songs that are say maybe 2–4 mins long and you just simply improvise over it or add to the song.

By the way I don’t care what genre or style assuming its in a key unless there are key changes thats fine, it’d be good ear training :)

Any places where can find one or maybe buy if I have too?

Thank you.

but I like to put them on my iTouch and use the aux on my amp and jam along so as I don’t need to use the computer speakers (they suck) plus I can play it outside if I feel like.
