[Harp-L] Fw: Backup Tracks

Lately, I've enjoyed practicing with two products by Ed Friedland:

   Blues Jam

   Jazz Jam Session

Each comes with a book of the chord changes and a CD.

Slow it down programs, such as Transcribe! or Anytune Pro+, are great 
for playing backing tracks because they let you shift the pitch without 
changing the tempo. If you just want to play a single harp, you can 
shift the material into the key you need for the position you are going 
to play in on that harp.. (It might sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks, 
if you shift too much.)

I also recommend the Jamey Aebersold play-a-long recordings and books.

Often I use iReal Pro to play rhythm section tracks when I'm working on 
a new rhythm, tune or progression. Band-In-A-Box is good for the same

> Looking to find quality tracks, for the diatonic harmonica, or chromatic,  maybe even trio style, Bass, Chord.  Gospel, country, jazz, standards, blues, whatever, as long as they're quality tracks. Downloadable to mp3, or purchase on CD. Thanks Jerl Welch.
