    Preferably classic country. This is for a music camp I'll be teaching at. I'll need tracks to demo the instruments with. Any recommendations for online vendors?
    Thanks!

    Karaoke-version.com has some pretty good tracks. You can buy custom backing tracks that can be reconfigured as many ways as you'd like (eg everything but guitar, keys only, everything but lead vox, etc.). You pay 1.99 and get unlimited mixes and downloads in multiple keys. I'll buy them and solo out the keys and use those tracks with my band live. It's worth $2/song to not spend 2-3 hours building everything from scratch. Some are not as great, but overall, my experience has been great.

    Just make sure you only buy the custom version.

    I like downloading backing tracks on youtube - obviously there's good ones and bad ones, but youtube seems to have the most available in one place.

    Just google "youtube to mp3" for a website converter.

    I should say, this is primarily for "generic" backing tracks - not particular song arrangments, etc.

    Here's an old link from a BT site that is still working even though the links are old. The country ones are near the bottom of the list. Hope you find something worthwhile.[​IMG]
