    I know they're out there! Can anyone recommend
    some?
    I just want to pop one in the stereo and start rippin'....
    Band in a box kinda thing. Can I also record and mix my tracks with these?
    Thanks!

    I have a disc called Jam Tracks that has backing tracks arranged by the scale you use to play over them. 41 tracks in a variety of styles. If you use it on your PC you can view the appropriate scale patterns for each track onscreen. It also works as an audio CD. www.underthegroove.com

    Thanks! I've gotten a lot of very positive response. A lot of my students and customers get a lot of use out of it. It's also pretty popular at the Musician's Institute store.

    Theres some discs Guitar Center Sell from www.fivefeathers.com, which are excellent. They are called Band in the Pocket, and sound great, and have a "feel" to them, from real musicians, not sequences. You can buy them online as well.

    Forumite Scottl has a nice collection on his site in a folder, e-mail him for a link.
