Since I make my own backing tracks sometime, I thought I could share them with you...

I' planning to put them on this site:

http://jazzguitar.kronqvist.org/

For now there is only one, but since I'm on summer vacation for four weeks I hope to clean up some of the others and put them there as well...

I use BIAB to make the miditracks, import them to Cubase and assign some VSTi's to the tracks to get a better sound.

Please tell me what you think of the idea...and are there any legal aspects on recording chord changes? I don't think so, there are a lot of tunes with the same chord changes so I guess calling the tunes a different name and write new melodies and lyrics isn't wrong...or is it?

Realistically, the only time legal is involved is if you are A. Distributing someone elses creation (book, music, software) and/or B. Charging a price for it! If let's say you create an exact version of 'Autumn Leaves' in midi. As long as you 'give it away' you're fine. But the moment someone uses that midi to record the song for a CD or what have you and sell it. Licencing fees at that point apply. Wink

ha ha! good observation...btw, there are maximum number of singars performers surviving on this method only, what we all in computer language copy/paste/modify stuff! so how can we discuss their livelihoods, all these poor chaps will die of anonymity and hunger!
