God the backing tracks are so old and borring.   Sorry guys, i haven't left comments or even really listened to anyones posts because the BT are like going to an old folks home, so boring that it would put an elephant to sleep in seconds, doesnt do anyones playing any justice  :'( :'( :'( :'( I wish i knew some musicans that would make up some modern cool tracks to bring out our mojo's

Not so sure I'd say that!!  Being able to adapt to one's environment is a survival skill whether it's in the woods or at a jam.  I played with a Johnny Cash impersonator last night at a jam and it was an interesting experience to say the lest.  Those of us who lack your skill sets gain from trying and learning new things brought on by different genres.

Pretty harsh Lindy given that we don't pay for them and they are voluntarily submitted. No one forces us to play to them or listen but that doesn't mean we have to slam them! Especially considering that this jam, only one person has uploaded backing track so your comments are pretty pointed. Maybe you have to chase down some of your music friends and get them to donate. And as a member of that 'old folks club' I find going through them and finding ones that give me something challenging and new to try, as Ringer said, to be good learning incentive.

Having watched and heard your progress over the las few years, I continue to be impressed with your playing and can understand your getting to the point of feeling like you need more challenge. At least some of the rest of us still can find something  in the list and if not, can always go the solo route.

Nuff said

I thought they were pretty great myself.    :)

Right now, backing track wise, the jam is being held up by one mighty pillar and his name is BeelzeBob.   He is doing a great job!

Back a few years ago, I used to make backing tracks out of MIDI files and they did not sound nearly as good as these.   Sonically, creatively, I think they are great.

I'm surprised that there aren't more other-than-harmonica-playing musicians trying things on this site. If for no other reason than meeting other musicians. We must not be doing are marketing properly.

I agree with your comments, HTrain.

I often think that if your able to play guitar then you may be able to get something underway, we can always use some old bt's, atm i cant send anything thru to any jam as i keep losing connection.

Lindy's original title was pretty negative sounding so I changed it from "God these backing tracks are old and boring   ... its like visiting an old folk's home around here" to "Lindy viists old folks home".     

I admit, it was simply a case of me being tired of seeing the negative sounding headline.

Well, I guess I gotta chime in on this one.  While I can be a sensitive sot like most people, I wasn't all that PO'd about it.  Mainly because we all know Lindy speaks her mind: sometimes ya get a gem, and sometimes ya don't.  But I do think if she's not happy with the backing tracks, there might be others who feel the same way.  If anyone has requests, critiques or ideas, please email me (robamillard@aol.com).  I've been able to satisfy all requests so far except one, and I'm still working on that one.  Band in the Box is powerful, I can do any tempo, any style, any key, any chord progression.  But it has limitations, and I have a lot of musical limitations as well.  It would be great if some real musicians made the BTs, but when I saw that D and  PJ were losing interest, I had to keep the BTs going somehow.  We have too good a thing here to let it fade away.

I uploaded a new BT that is a little livelier: Bellyacher's Boogie.  Lindy, let me know what you think, and what you like in a BT.  Maybe just name some tunes you would like as BTs.  I'll try to 'bring out your mojo.'

Rick, thanks as always for your leadership and support.

Look when i made that commit i did not mean to offend anyone, I'm not the greatest with tacked some times, all i know is, i want to participate in the jam but cant as i am not that cleaver to addapt to Jazz, i find it boring and when i try to play on it, it sounds how i feel, I have no idea how these backing tracks are made and i had put no thought in to the person making them, for that i am truly sorry
I'm just a Mad cow.
