    Yeah, so I always thought I could get them at guitarbackingtrack.com but you have to upload some before you can get any.. anywhere else to get backing tracks?

    +1 on that. Usually several different ones to choose from, or band in a box and make your own.

    YouTube is full of them. I have been using the heck out of the many, many drum tracks available.

    Thanks!

    How do you get them into a mp3 file so you can record over them?

    I, too, have been looking for backing tracks. I can make a few decent backing tracks, but none sound as good as what I'm hearing produced by other people.

    Thanks to OP for making this topic and thanks to all who've contributed so far.

    YouTube Bart Bijvank.... The type of backingtracks composes may not be your cup of tea, but it's a good start...

    I've got countless tracks from that site, and never had to upload any. I think I had to make an email account (free) in order to download like more than 3 or something, but whatever that restriction/requirement is, it seems to occasionally go away on its own, as I never have a problem downloading them.

    Back in the day I used to subscribe to Guitar Techniques and Total Guitar Magazines. They had excellent backing tracks. Is there anywhere to get their old backing tracks? Anybody bought a magazine lately and if so are they still good?

    I just figured out you can make backing tracks with this software by isolating out the guitar parts.. pretty cool.
