  • The Backing Track Thread!!!

    **UPDATE 12/12/06: I no longer have a place to host the files, and am not around the forum often enough nowadays to add new tracks. Anybody willing to take over the thread?

    Seeing as how we've had several jams as of late, thought I'd start a thread and collect all the backing tracks, so folks can jam with'em, or make new amp clips in context of a song.

    If you got ones you want to share, please send links to the backing tracks that you have (from a jam or not), with a short description of what it is, or send it to me, and I'll see about posting'em - PM me on that.

    Let me know if any of these links are missing.

      thought rather than wait for someone else to start that topic, I'd do it myself. Here's why.

      I have talked with Rob and we agreed he will post in NO Amp forum threads other than the Tech Thread. If he does post in any other threads, he will be banned.

      I realize that will be a real temptation for some of you to just let loose in new threads, knowing he won't reply. Rob understands that as well, but a deal's a deal.

      As to the tech thread itself, it seems most people "get" it and aren't interested in drama, but just want their questions answered or discuss topics of interest. Already there have been some great contributions from various members of the HC community. There are links to useful resources. There's a lot of good stuff. I don't want that thread to be about Rob, James, or anyone for that matter. I want it to be a flame-free zone about amp technology, and apparently, so do a lot of you.

      But this an experiment. If the idea of a thread devoted solely to "non-denominational" tech subjects doesn't fly, or if people can't keep negative aspects of their personalities out of it, I see no need to subject anyone, especially the HC community, to an untenable situation. At that point I would archive the useful information and close the thread.

      Let's turn down the volume for a couple weeks and see what happens. Nothing is set in stone. All I care about is a site that takes care of people's needs. A lot of you feel that a dedicated tech thread is a useful addition. I think so too; time will tell. [/QUOTE]

                  Mike, I can't take credit for those clips... I sent them to you because I had them on my PC. I didn't have anything to do with creating and/or posting them originally. I think two of them were Ed D's.

                  And yes, you should sticky the thread.


                  The two funk jams were Ed's, I presume?

                      By the way - does anyone remember who started the Frank Gamble backing track a while back?

                        Tore Down - Rockin' Blues
                        "Afterwards I wiped my tail with a hen, with a cock, with a pullet, with a calf's skin, with a hare, with a pigeon, with a cormorant, with an attorney's bag, with a montero, with a coif, with a falconer's lure. But, to conclude, I say and maintain, that of all torcheculs, arsewisps, bumfodders, tail-napkins, bunghole cleansers, and wipe-breeches, there is none in the world comparable to the neck of a goose, that is well downed, if you hold her head betwixt your legs. And believe me therein upon mine honour, for you will thereby feel in your nockhole a most wonderful pleasure, both in regard of the softness of the said down and of the temporate heat of the goose, which is easily communicated to the bum-gut and the rest the inwards, in so far as to come even to the regions of the heart and brains."

                          This site is all about backing tracks:

                            Great idea!! Hard to beat some real backings for practicing to...

                              Great idea guys, my site is posted in a couple of threads but I just thought I would mention it's all in the spirit of sharing which is what led me to the idea of a backing track exchange forum. In most cases if it's not already there (or it's been removed) you can request a track and it will usually be promplty added.
