Anyone of you out there knows a good source where to get backing tracks from or do you create them by yourself using BIAB or similar?

Recommendations are very appreciated.

Thanks Dale,
I was thinking more of single tracks as used in Karaoke. When one is looking for just one or other track then the a CD is to expensive.

www.karaoke-version.com is a good one. They have a huge list of songs that you can customize to your personal liking, including the key of the song.

Why not make your own--if you can play rhythm and bass, get a four track recorder, sing a song and play rhythm and use a drum machine--then add bass, then a muted bass beat on the guitar and if you want, a little single string lead guitar--put this on a CD and you got a band without the steel guitar which you do and, this way, you know exactly what's happening in the song. I've got a 4 track Fostex cassette that I use and then make a CD from it. There's newer ones that are digital and make the CD's. Just a suggestion, but it's something having you as your own band.

Just as Bob Jennings said, is wonderful. I downloaded a program called MIXPAD. You can add 7 tracks to it, and very easy to use. I also got a program called PITCH SWITCH, if I want to change to a different key. All you need is a microphone, and your in business. All is 10 times easier than band in a box. You sing the sang, and play rhythm, then play back, adding the next instrument, and so on. Even put a harmony voice on it, and you have a complete song, all done with just you. If you like your steel part, save it and move on to another song. I am not a computer whiz, but this setup is so easy.
