    Soundcloud has really clamped down on this. Almost every song i try to upload gets blocked because of copy right infringements.
    So is there a place i can upload my bass overdubs of cover songs and it not get blocked?

    Speaking of bass overdubs, anyone know where I can find backing track songs for bass? I'm looking for songs from bands like KISS, Heart, AC/DC and Led Zep/ and so on but all I can find are generic backing tracks like Blues Jams in E etc.. I found plenty of backing tracks for guitars but nothing for bass.

    I make my own.
    I take a .mp3 load it into my recording DAW, in my case reader.
    I then apply a notch filter with either a graphic eq or parameteric eq to the .mp3. I notch out enough so that when i toggle the effect off the bass drops out of the mix.
    I then play the bass line over the .mp3.
    This doesn't make a track without any bass, but it works good enough for my needs.

    Here is an example(with me playing the bass line)

    I use Reaper.... although any recording software will work for this.
    Reaper is free to download and never expires, if you chose to buy a license it's only $70. Also Im familiar with this program so if you do decide to go with Reaper i can help you with the set up, and the process i used in the above post.
    Google Reaper download, download the program, and get back to me if you wish.
