<center>Links to Over 5,000 Free Guitar Backing Tracks!
by Beth Isbell, January 15, 2010
I spent a lot of hours going through pages & pages of google searches to find the best free guitar backing track sites. These are mainly for blues & rock music, but some contain jazz, country, even reggae tracks. I personally visited every site & pulled up tracks to make sure that every track & site is actually FREE! All together these sites contain over 5,000 FREE guitar backing tracks in virtually every style & tempo ... have fun! :)

Love this site - LOT of blues backing track mp3s of song you know & get played at jams & bars ...
lots of blues, classic rock & jazz songs, & some other styles - NOTE all the links/artists listed on the left side of the page pull up as mp3s, but all the links/artists on right side of page don't - they say you can download as WinRar (don't know what that is) & download sites don't seem to work, but still a LOT of really cool tunes as backing tracks to select from from the mp3s that do work!

This is an interesting concept & I have heard friends talk about it - this program allows you to actually slow down mp3s to half speed but at the original pitch - to allow you to learn solos/riffs ... costs about $60.00 to order, but you can sign up & receive a free download sample program that works, but has some limitations. I'm not recommending this program, but think it might be worth at least checking out & if it works and you can drop the $60 they require, then cool ...


Finally, if you know of any other sites that contain free blue or rock (or other) backing tracks, then please leave a reply with the link below or e-mail me at or find me on Facebook & send me a message ...

I'll check it out & if it is free with no strings attached, see about adding it to the list.

Thanks & hope you have fun jamming to 1,000s of free tunes!!!
