Musiciansbackingtracks.com provides everything you need to play, impress and make money without the hassle and expense of a backing band. Nearly 200 professionally recorded backing tracks in genres including classical, jazz, folk and pop, incorporating all the standards, available for purchase online and immediate download, suitable for all lead instruments.
The site also features educational resources, our famous "Performance Packs" (packages of backing tracks, guide tracks and sheet music) and selected music by virtuoso violinist and mandolinist Pete Hartley. Pete founded the site when he couldn't find backing tracks of adequate quality for his burgeoning wedding and function gig business. Pete created and commissioned over a hundred backing tracks for his repertoire of classical, folk, jazz and pop standards, a hugely expensive exercise but one that got him the results he wanted, gigging to paying audiences all over the world. Now, through musiciansbackingtracks.com, he is making these same tracks available to other musicians at a price anyone can afford, and the collection is expanding all the time!

"I performed as a vocalist with backing tracks from "MusiciansBackingTracks.com". Before hearing them, I was worried they might sound a bit too 'karaoke'. But my fears were unfounded; they are full, lively, and professional. I loved singing to them, and the audience loved hearing them. MusiciansBackingTracks.com provide the perfect solution for a solo vocalist, regardless of whether you accompany yourself or not." - Adrienne Osborn, Boulder, Colorado, USA
"As an instructor and professional performing musician, I have referred to these backing tracks on more then one occasion. These are not cheesy low quality midi tracks, but high quality recordings that bring out the best in my own playing. I highly recommend these recordings to anyone wanting state-of-the-art Studio recorded backing tracks." - Lee Gattenby, Kenai, Alaska, USA
These tracks are superb to have my guitar students play along to. The tracks are flexible and versatile enough to allow them to either play the core melody or improvise. By recording themselves playing to them they can track their progress, and the excellent quality of the tracks means that they sound pro and feel great about themselves and their playing. - James Scott, London, UK
