    I recently purchased Chordpulse, and I thought I'd come here and recommend it.

    It's an easy way to type in a few chords, choose a style, and have a backing track to rehearse to. Then when you are done with that, you can have one click changes of key and tempo.

    I know there are other alternatives out there, but some of them are needlessly cluttered for a practice tool. And some of them are much more expensive.

    Chordpulse is $24.95.

    [I have no affiliation. I just think it is a very useful, simple practice tool at a very fair price.]

    I just wanted to chime in that there is an update with more styles and the styles organized by genre.
    There are several Jazz styles now.

    I frequently use this tool to very quickly put together a backing track for practice.

    iReal looks like it would be a match for me if I had a Mac. In the Windows world, we have Band In The Box, which many use here, but it's too much money and Stuff for me. I like to keep it simple for a tool like this. Chordpulse hits that spot, and it looks like iReal does, too.
    If there was ever a 20 dollar version of iReal for Windows, I'd be all over it.
