Backing Tracks

This section contains an overview of all drum loops and guitar/bass guitar backing tracks. Currently there are 176 free drum tracks available. Jazz and blues loops are in the make and will be available soon. Don't forget to subscribe to our youtube drum loops channel!

Mp3 and midi jam tracks

These free tracks are presented in both mp3 and GM midi file format. I have included the midi file so you can change the loop if you want to. You could - for example - search a drum pattern or fill on this website and replace some measures in the drum loop whith those patterns or fills. Or you can download a drum phrase (which contains patterns and fills) and add them to the drum track. You could make the track longer, add repeats, change the tempo, add dynamics, and so on.

Play along

Use these play along tracks to replace the metronome and make practising more fun. Play along with tracks in different tempos and songstructure. They are in 4/4 time and contain at least 2 different drum patterns with hi-hat and cymbal variations and at least 4 different fills. The length of each track or loop ranges between 2 to 8 minutes.

Loops versus tracks

The difference between the backing tracks and loops is that the loops contain no full 4/4 drum fills and have only fill-ins of maximum 2 beats. Also, they have 1 to 2 patterns instead of 2 to 4 patterns. The rhythms used are choosen from one or two drum patterns and are related to each other, this way they are especialy usefull for replacing a metronome and practicing bass or guitar grooves. Tracks have a predefined songstructure (which can include introduction, verse, chorus and bridge), loops have a more simple structure.
Here is an overview on the difference between the tracks and loops section:

Bass guitar backing tracks
  • 2 to 4 drum beats
  • patterns are combined into different phrases for each part of the song
  • up to 4 drum fills or groove fills
  • 7 different songstructures and implementations (the way beats and fills are aranged in the song)
  • 4 one-beat of two-beat fill-in, snare skip or snare fill
Drum loops
  • 1 to 2 drum beats
  • no drum fill nor groove fill
  • simple structure that exists out of repeating phraseloops
  • 6 to 10 one-beat or two-beat fill-in, snare skip or snare fill

Pdf score

Each loop or track contains a pdf score which you could give to a drummer to jam together. Or you can use the score to learn something about how to create a drum backing track.
