Backing tracks are a great way to improvise your own solos or to learn a solo from one of your favorite songs. There are several ways to create your own backing tracks although it can be time consuming and costly. I have created many free quality drum tracks that you can use to add instument tracks to, and create your own.

The easiest way to create your own tracks is to use midi files and remove the guitar track. First you need a midi editor program so you can remove the guitar track part from the song. There are many FREE midi editors/players you can download, simply do a web search for a “free midi editor” or “free midi software”.
Next step is to find the midi file for the song you want to play. There are FREE midi files for just about any song you can think of, simply do a web search of “ free midi files “ and you will find numerous sites with quality midi’s you can download.
Once you download the song you want open it in the midi editor program. Now you will see the individual instrument tracks, drums, bass, strings etc. You can then simply mute out or delete the instruments you want leaving you with the backing track.
