get backup for fiddle , guitar or any other string instrument


Dick Hauser - Posted - 11/13/2015:  13:06:48


I am guessing, bit I think there is a new post about by Eric that discusses rhythm back files and where they can be found.

ChickenMan - Posted - 11/13/2015:  18:57:09


Yes, what Dick said. There are several links in that thread and it is a relatively new thread.

where what is web sight

drypitstop - Posted - 11/14/2015:  10:25:21


looking for the sight that  I had two weeks ago before my PC crashed, after getting it fixed I cant get   what I want  it had lots of fiddle tunes and the back up of guitar or banjo at regular speed or slowed down, all I had to do was scroll to the tune click on guitar, or banjo back up sand speed and practice with my fiddle or guitar or mandolin, now gone because some wise acre decided to change things  a link what the heck is a link????????????????????

Calm down. A link is an Internet address, formatted in such a way that when you click it, it will take you there. Here's the link to Eric's recent thread:   fiddlehangout.com/topic/42846/1



Maybe you're thinking of the Old Time Jam website. Here's a link to it:  oldtimejam.com/wordpress/

Thanks Doug, I didn't have access to a computer so I didn't mess with pasting a non linking link, but that's what I wanted to do. My guess is the OT jam site is the winner.

When I opened this sight  it had a gray screen  and  reads  "Plugin required to open this site  had a figure of a plug in device like used on attachments to a PC   doesnt make sense to me, sorry I am computer illiterate, my old freinds my age getting close to 80,s dont have a PC said "Dennis "  your too old to be fooling with that stuff, find you a ten year old kid to come and teach you how


DougD - Posted - 11/14/2015:  16:52:43


So what happens if you click the links I provided? Is that what you're describing?


drypitstop - Posted - 11/14/2015:  17:34:42


NO " it shows old time Jam you have to join or something, never had to do this before and now it shows a plug in picture that you have to plug in something I dont know what in order to continue. the one I had before was a list of tunes, you scrioll down select what you wanted ten click on it when you chose to use a guitar or banjo or another fiddle to play accompaniment plus what key it was in, select either slow or regular speed the sound would come on and you played along with your fiddle or mandolin , guitar etc. it would play accompaniment for you on the tune that you choose.

Yes, that sounds exactly like the Oldtime Jam Website. Great site put together by Dr.Josh Turknett from Atlanta. I actually did a few of the fiddle tunes with him on that site. Love the way he has it organized. Very excellent resource.

Try jaybuckey.com. Go to the free stuff section where there are a ton of tabs for various instruments. At the bottom of the list is of tabs is another huge list of MP3 recorgings. You can save the ones you want by right clicking, save target as, and specify a location on your computer.

Just wondering, are you still using windows XP in your computer?

I like to use Old Time Jam because of the good old time banjo playing. I’m a member there for about two years now. Lots of good tunes I would not have heard otherwise.

It’s well worth the small cost with access to all of the downloads. He even gave me a free brain examination and said he couldn’t find anything! I’m pretty happy about that.

drypitstop - Posted - 11/15/2015:  10:15:42


I dont have windows XP anymore  got rid of that several years ago, now windows 10 with this new lap top


Astrang - Posted - 11/15/2015:  10:34:36


That’s what I have, windows ten in a lap top. I just tried it and Old Time Jam works fine. Not sure why it would be asking for a plug in.

DougD - Posted - 11/15/2015:  11:48:15


Dennis, the "plug in" the site is asking for is not an actual physical object that you have to plug in to your computer. A "plug in" is a program (or a version or part of one) that your browser uses to perform certain tasks, like playing music or videos, or opening Adobe acrobat documents. Somehow you've lost it from your browser. Adobe Flash is one important one that frequently causes problems. I think the Jukebox on this site uses Flash, so you could try playing something from the FHO Jukebox and see what happens - or a YouTube video.



I'm still not clear what site you're trying to access. I don't use backup track sites, but your description sounds like the Old Time Jam. It has a tune list on a gray background, and you can select different combinations of instruments and fast and slow speeds for at least the guitar. You don't have to join to use the basic tracks, but membership has other benefits, and helps Josh Turknett, who created the site. He's also a member here, and maybe he'll see this and let us know how the site works.



I'd recommend you make sure your browser and Flash player are both up to date. If they are, or you're trying to visit some other site, I'd suggest you contact the person who "fixed" your computer, if that's when the problem started.



BTW, I'm running Windows XP on my laptop, and the Old Time Jam site works fine with either Firefox or Windows Explorer.

He probably doesn't have Adobe Flash installed at all.



He should go here and install it.



adobe.com/shockwave/download/d...waveFlash



That Old Time site does require Flash.

Adobe Flash player:  is not available to me locks me out  cannot get it to open as I have been instructed by tech nician over the phone  just will not open, I guess it is this new windows 10  I am on


vibratingstring - Posted - 11/22/2015:  08:18:52


I looked around and found a website that explains that Windows 10 has Flash built into Windows Explorer.   You have to go to the "settings" and turn it enable it..



There are other sites, but here is one that explains:
