    What exactly are you looking for? MIDI? MP3? WAV? what styles?
    If your goal is to improvise I suggest you get a good synth card and Band In a Box Software. Otherwise if you want MIDI track to songs you like search for them on the Web. I usually make my own tracks.

    For jazz backing tracks there's Jamey Aebersold books. Fantastic product.

    For rock backing tracks, I dunno, why not bang sticks on a cow skull and grunt, or whatever it is you people do?

    NO, JUST KIDDING... I'm NOT a jazz snob, honest.

    For rock tracks I'm sure there are resources I don't know about (Jam Trax?). Both Guitar Techniques magazine and Total Guitar magazine have a variety of backing tracks in rock/pop/metal/funk styles. Both are brit mags, so to get them in the US you have to find a magazine stand with int'l magazines such as is found in Barnes & Noble.

    Finally, I don't know where you are with your own improvisation/soloing, but for workshopping ideas I think Band in a Box type music generating software is _invaluable_. Yeah, the sound quality is pretty bleak, and computer generated music's lack of feel is so extreme it's depressing... but for laboratory-type figuring out of sounds and ways to approach soloing, BIAB is just awesome. I personally have taught myself soooooo much thru using simple computer music loops and then testing out my own cockamamie ideas of 'how-music-works' with them.

    Total Guitar

    Aebersold

    Band in a Box

    More jam tracks, mostly jazz, some pop <----- ooop, this site used to offer all these tracks free... now I see that you have to be a member (I'm assuming that costs something) ... oh well. They are total BIAB type tracks, certainly not worth paying for.

    Here's some more stuff I just found surfin:
    Weird groover with some tracks

    Eureka, Vee haf zinthezized an "Anti-Funk" compound, mit zis I vill destroy my nemesis, George Clinton unt his P-Funk allstars: - No funk here Metal quick time midi files by a dutch a guy

    These jamtracks KICK (well, at least the one I checked out did...) This is what America wants:
    Bluesblast


    Have fun,
    doug.

    wow, thats pretty impressive.
    "any song you want" seems a bit ambitious though... maybe i'll put them to the test and see if they can get me backing tracks for some lamb of god songs
