Anybody check this out yet? https://strummachine.com/app

Backing tracks with actual instruments and tons of songs. Super cool! I got on it for fiddle initially, but there's plenty of songs on there you could play steel over. You can program your own tunes in, but there's lots already loaded on the site.

I got on last night and spent about 20 min just jamming on Sweet Georgia Brown. Really cool app to have since most of us are stuck at home. No financial interest and it seems to be geared toward bluegrassers, but I thought it'd be great for steelers, too.

I dl’d the app and tried to use it but got no sound. A message came up that said my iPad was in mute mode, which it is not.

It looks like a pretty useful thing. $5 a month seems reasonable for a couple months, but after that it starts looking a bit ridiculous.

I tried it and it was just acoustic guitar which is fine except the song list is not country as stated mainly bluegrass but it's cool enough I can use it for sure but it's limited

You can add in bass and mandolin from the Instruments menu.
