I’ve had a few people ask me for sources for good guitar backing tracks that you can upload to the AmpKit app and use for practicing your solos. A great little source for some tasty jam along tracks is my friend Marty Schwartz’s site, Guitarjamz.com. If you go to this URL and sign up for his mailing list, he’ll give you access to the tracks for free – http://www.guitarjamz.com/mp3jamtracks/ The messages he sends out are few and far between and he doesn’t share your info with anyone else.

Jamming along to backing tracks is an awesome way to beef up your soloing and improvisation skills. If you’re not doing it already, give it a try. AmpKit makes it easy to import these tracks straight from your computer through a Web interface over your Wi-Fi network. Then you can play along with the gear modeling setup of your choice.
