Howdy. Can anyone suggest a location for getting slow and medium tempo instrumental country tracks that I can practice steel lines over? Thanks!

I've got over 200 song tracks on my tab pages, many with tabs. To find a particular one quickly just use the Google custom search at the top of my home page to find it!

Thank you Greg. I'm mainly looking for instrumental slow and medium tempo country tracks that I can provide the steel parts for practice. Thanks.

Just go on YouTube and in the search window type either the
name of the song or the singers name followed by karaoke.
EX: George Jones karaoke
Here are some nice tracks to play with.

Kent, Greg offers a lot of stuff. You can learn it as he does it, then change to however you want to modify it. He has a ton of material, and excellent, and for just your donation. Wonderful man and a great musician.
