Play-alongs?

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by David Jayne, Dec 27, 2011.


  1. Perhaps wrong forum. If so, sorry, not sure where this goes.
    I'm wondering if there are real, bona-fide recordings of my favorite artists' songs, with the bass tracks deleted.

    I'm thin on gigs these days. Just trying to have some fun. Playing along with ordinary recordings with EQ set to remove low-end (bass parts) also removes the kick drum, and other things, which is less than desirable.
    Point a brother in the right direction? Is this even possible? Many thanks.

    There are quite a few bass playa longs with the bass tracks deleted that Ive seen. It depends on what artist you are looking for. I've seen Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Rush, Incubus, and more. I believe they are made by Hal Leonard.

    This, "There are quite a few bass playa longs with the bass tracks deleted that Ive seen. It depends on what artist you are looking for. I've seen Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Rush, Incubus, and more. I believe they are made by Hal Leonard."

    If you google bass backing track, several companies will come up that will make custom tracks for you.

    Check out the Hal Leonard website. They have several bass play-alongs with tab books. They are grouped in collections like Dark Side of the Moon, Classic Rock, etc. The bonus is an application included on the CD called Amazing Slowdowner. Upgrade to the full version for like $15. It is a mince tool for practicing. It lets you change the speed of tracks without affecting pitch, or conversely bumping the pitch a bit without affecting speed. This is handy if you don't want to de-tune a half step for doing Stevie Ray Vaughn songs, etc.
