    Default I started a website for backing tracks

    I've just started a website for free backing tracks with someone I met on another forum. We both don't have anyone to play with, so we decided to make backing tracks for others who might be in a similar position not having anyone to play with, or if you need an accompaniment to practice improvisation without them getting lost, or whatever else you use backing tracks for. They'll all be custom made to order, so you can get a track perfect for you. Here's a link to the site

    An interesting idea, Gunnar. Some of us do collaborations over the net via the SAW group, but your idea seems to be a very sensible one. Hope it gets good responses.
