    How useful do players find these backing tracks ?

    I have not used them much before, but I am finding it good to practice hearing harmony and playing modes, also good ear training when you don't know what all the chords are....

    ...it's like playing though a short set having them on a playlist.

    Not that much about on the internet that I can find (for free anyway) - and a lot of it is poor quality too.

    I "could" of course make my own with the DAW, just a drum pattern and some chords, which is what I expect many do,
