Backing Tracks
« on: February 21, 2012, 03:11:55 am »
Are there any high quality backing tracks for Ventures pieces?  I am interested particularly in 1960-63 pieces, including "Lullaby of the Leaves," for instance.

There are very good backing tracks for a great number of Shadows pieces, but comparable BTs for the Ventures I have not been able to find.  ANy leads would be appreciated.  Thank you.

These are all I've found that are commercially available.

I think there might be more, but I don't know where to find them.

There are a number of midi files on the net. Just search for "ventures midi files".

Also, Nokie did a number of backing trax a few years back.  The lead guitar was removed from several live performances.

You can find a complete LIST of those here:  http://www.ne.jp/asahi/mochizuki/kiyoshi/kiyoshi/karaoke/karaoke.html
