Where can I find free, decent backing tracks, not just for songs but for improvisation?

I use www.guitarbackingtrack.com which is great for all my songs, but I haven't found a single site that provides backing tracks suitable for practising major/minor scales etc., even YouTube gave disappointing results!

Any guidance is appreciated

also u can find out what key regular songs are and just solo over thier backtracks (example: I solo over No one like you - Scorpions in A with backtracks from the site you used first)

How do I download them all?

ok because i can't download anything from the backing tracks page at all I'm requesting more pages?

Unless they make the tracks downloadable, I mean not everyone can plug a guitar into their computer.

I highly recommend http://www.jamstudio.com/Studio/index.htm

It basically allows you to essentially create your own backings by piecing together samples in the chords/progressions of your choosing.

Otherwise the most effective thing you can do is use a program like guitar pro to create backtracks specifically for whatever you want to practice. Even better if you can record yourself, create 4-12 bar loops in something like Audacity or Cubase or whatever.

Why would you need to plug your guitar into your computer? Just play the track and jam to it.

I have headphones, not speakers

I use my tracks for my portable device anyway

I've found a few decent backing tracks on youtube. Just search "guitar backing tracks" and you should be able to find something you'll like
