    Hi all.
    This site is amazing - glad I found it.

    I am waiting for my new Fuchs ODS50 and cabinet.
    I am really looking forward to play it.

    I am looking for some blues backing tracks to jam to.
    I found a nice clip in a post by user "bbarnard".
    The thread was named "A couple sound clips".
    He made a nice jam over it, but didn't know where it was from.
    It was called "Just An Excuse".
    The user "tonefreak" posted that he knew where it was hosted.

    Is it possible that someone have this backing track and others alike ?

    When I get my Fuchs ODS50 I will post some soundclips here.

    Greetings from Denmark

    Hej Carsten,

    Glad to see a fellow scandinavian on the board.

    I make a lot of backing tracks but I haven't done a blues yet as there have been quite a few out there.

    I would love to get a Fuchs. They just seem so very hard to get here up north.
    Where did you order yours?
    Was it difficult?

    Hey Mats.

    Well I have spent a very long time emailing with people that have experience in the Fuchs amps.
    My first approch was to get a Skrydstrup OD50 head, but this thing is really pricy - 30000 danish crones (= $4800) and then I had to get a speakercabinet too.....
    Steen Skrydstrup is really making top notch products but I think the OD50 is too expencive and the Fuchs ODS is more headed towards an overdrive head IMO.

    I have had much emailcorrespondance with mainly four people who is very nice and helpful - Scott lerner, Jason Barker, Michael Lewis and Eddie B (at indoor Storm).
    You should really get in touch with these guys - they know all about the Fuchs amps.
    They also have some nice videofootage when playing Fuchs amps.

    I also mailed to Andy Fuchs himself but have never got a reply.
    Instead Andy Fuchs sent my email to the Dutch Fuchs distributor - Erik van de Haar.

    I haven't got it yet but it is not 3 weeks since I ordered it so patience patience patience..

    You can mail me directly and I could tell you all I know.
    Fuchs amps are very little known here in Scandinavia so very few people actually know about this great amp.

    greetings from Denmark

    Thanx Normster - I really appreciate your links.
    Maybe I will contact Scott about his BT - I can't find any at his site though...

    To azgolfer : I have done much googling on BT atc. but most of the hits are midi backing tracks. My problem with midi BT is that they don't inspire me that much as the backingtracks that is actually recorded with live instruments.

    LIke the one Normster linked me to :
    http://thenormster.com/MP3/Just an Excuse BT.mp3
    IMO I think this one really gives one a feeling of actually beeing in the band (you can actually hear members of the band shouting in the background which I think is cool...)

    Anyway thanx for the links - hope to collect some more though..
