Hi everyone,

My apologies if this question has already been raised somewhere else.
is anyone having difficulties accessing the charts and backing tracks on fbbts.com?

Sorry again if anyone else has addressed this issue.

I've been having the same issue for the last few weeks now. I sent an email to the address listed on the website, but never heard anything back. This was a great resource and I sure do miss it.

I also cannot open the various tracks on this site. Really enjoyed this site. Hoping it is only temporary.

REALLY like Strum Machine. I've been using it for over a year. But the backing tracks at FBBTS are stellar. I would be very disappointed if it closes up shop.

BTW, @Walker Copley, I used to live in Clinton over 55 years ago!  ...not "too far" from Spartanburg!  ;)

Has anyone tried hitting the donate button to see if that helps you get what you want? Maybe the person who owns the website needs help keeping it open.

I'd be more than happy to donate to the site. It's been one of the most important parts of my learning process. However, I'm not about to throw money at a dead website and cross my fingers that it comes back. If the owner communicates a a need for help, then I'm willing to contribute.

Thank you everyone for your feedback. Thank you Walker for leaving the link. I joined and started using Strummachine.com already.
Yes indeed I would also consider donating to fbbts.com. I realize I should have when it was up and running! I agree with you Bill..... the backing tracks are stellar on FBBTS. Thank you again everybody for your helpful comments.

I just came across this YouTube site: BBT Bluegrass Backing Tracks. I'm not sure if this is the YouTube page mentioned in the FBBTs website. But, if you're looking for an interesting bluegrass backing track page, you might take a look here:

Hi Bill.

Thanks so much for your feedback and comments.
I just checked out the link you sent.
BBT Bluegrass Backing Tracks look good too. Thanks very much.
I will use that one too!

In other news, I noticed today that fbbts.com is back on track.
So we have lots of options to choose from.

Many thanks again.

Jim

I am almost positive that the "fbbts.com" files were created using "Band in a Box". The person who created those files was a very advanced BIAB user.
