Discovered the Strum Machine! What a super program. The only problem is that I can't see how much it is to purchase after the free trial. Anyone know? I sure look forward to playing with this an improving my Playing with others skills and improving my speed...So far I have 4 tunes on my list so off to practice!

$5 per month Judith. Or $4.10 if paid annually.

Judith: Are you using TefView or TablEdit? With TefView you can do the same thing for free. Many of the tunes in the TAB archive on here have backup included. Herre's an example for Old Joe Clark:

When you play the tune in TefView or TablEdit you can reduce the volume of the banjo part, and only hear the backup. You can of course slow the tune down also. This is my #1 go to tool for learning. If you plan on using TABs a lot it is well worth the $60 or so to buy the more sophisticated TablEdit program. TefView is free.

I like The Strum Machine because it's very easy to enter my own tune, or to create a variation of a tune it already has. I don't have to specify all the notes like one would with tab. It's just entering chords.

It also transposes.

That said, the solutions that Wayne points out that can use existing tab are pretty cool, and less expensive.

Thanks @StuartJohn . I checked-out the Old Joe Clark from the archive, that works well too n1wr Anyway it is fun to play along...I even worked up a bit more speed on one song.
