Backing tracks are fun and useful, though often scattered, disorganized and hard to find all in one place.
What we've done here is collected a few free blues backing tracks that we like, cleaned them up, dusted them off and organized them into one neat and tidy playlist. It's enough material to keep you busy for a solid weekend and in a bunch of different keys.
These tracks can be played directly from this page, via a Soundcloud playlist, or can be downloaded using the MediaHuman app to MP3 files for your computer or mobile device from the YouTube source. Each channel is cited at the bottom of this page.
The tracks make ideal practice tools, either as a teaching resources or for personal study.
Guitar Education Resources We Use
We often refer to Guitar Tricks courses and video lessons, which to this point have amassed a library of well over 10k videos.
They're the best when it comes to online guitar education, and they'll let you try everything out free for 14 days. After that, you still have 60 additional days to cancel with a full refund, no questions asked.
You can checkout Bobby's full review of Guitar Tricks for more information.
