A backing track is generaly missing an instrument(s), be it bass, rhythm or more often than not lead.
The idea of a backing track is to learn to play along with the song without the actual instrumentation influencing you as you go. Alot of people use them to just jam along with their own ideas too.
Most backing tracks i find are just drums and bass so you can play guitar along yourself.

Basicly, if your piece has all intended instrumentation in place it's a cover.

Your backing track definition is much better than mine. However your definition of a cover is a bit iffy. A cover is a piece of music recorded or performed by someone other than the original composer(s). It has nothing to do with intended instrumentation. You can orchestrate a solo piano work or you can do a swing arrangement of a bebop tune or just anything you can come up with really.

Yeah i get ya, i just mean in this instance he wants to know whether the track he has recorded is a backing track or cover.
To simplify it if all he's done is recorded every instrument the same as it was on the record.. it's a cover.
