One of my pet peeves is that it seems all play along jam tracks are oriented to instrumentals.
Does anyone know of any sites that let you jam with people singing bluegrass or old time songs?
Here is one that includes a husband and wife duo singing songs but leaving the breaks to the viewers.

When you open it click on videos and sort by most popular. There were about 15 Bluegrass standards available to jam with.

Enjoy

Geoff Hohwald has jam tracks with vocals, leaving space for breaks. Typically at 3 different speeds. He used to have them on the Watch and Learn website, but I can’t find them. Give them a call and they can probably either send you a download link or CDs. I don’t think they’re very expensive.

I don't know of any jam tracks like that but..... if you go to jams, you could record the music being played/sung and then go home and play/sing along with it.   Lots of times I just sing harmony with songs on a CD that's on the radio or on my recorder.   I use Band in a Box daily to practice my picking and sing and play with that.  I've even been known to record my voice with a jam track and then attempt to sing harmony with it (not as easy to do).

Hmmm, that link didn't work for me. Anyway, I wanted to chime in that I'll just use any regular youtube video as a jam track. It works pretty well, although you sometimes end up playing in funky keys. Just play over the guitar players break...you can't hear them all that well anyway!

Hi John, sorry didn’t work out for you; try going into YouTube and type in My Real Santa.

And then just go onto the videos and select most popular.
That should work,

Rick
