Hey I feel I am getting stuck here. Its only me and my guitar when I play which makes it hard for me to solo over stuff or anything like that. I need drums to keep a beat but i have no drum software. Any Ideas?

get guitar pro! Then download some tabs of songs that can be cool to solo over, and then just mute the guitar tracks and play over the drum and bass-track. What's great about it is that you can find pretty much any song out there and mute the instruments that you don't want

Yes, guitar pro is great! I use it all the time for not only backing tracks, but it also helps me create songs, define chords, understand sheet music, and fun to mess around with. There are millions of songs all you have to do is google "song name" guitar pro tab, and there it is. rolleyes.gif

There's a nice button in guitar pro that makes the track repeat over and over again.

THere's a lot of drum loop for ACID on the net, jsut search for drum loops. WHen you download them, insert them in a track and draw a loop region over it, or double click the event on the track bar. It will go looped for days for you to play over it wink.gif

Good choice. This is actually the program that I use for all of my recordings. I started with it back when Sony hadn't bought the rights.

From a drummers standpoint, all the suggestions listed are good, but they're going to sound fake. The best program to use for drum loops in my opinion is Fruity Loops. You can download a basic version for free. This program kicks some serious butt.

www.flstudio.com

Also, if you decide to use this program, you'll benefit from my upcoming drum lessons where I'll show you how to use it.

I've bought several sampling CD's from a site called Beta Monkey Music, and i have to say I'm really pleased with them. This site specializes in real sampled drums in a variety of styles from blues, rock, punk to metal. I usually use them in Fruity loops or acid pro.

I'll use Fruity Loops in combination with some vst drums. At the moment I'm using EZDrummer but Spectrasonics got some real good Drum samples and other sounds. It will cost you a few gigabytes and some cash... but you can create good stuff with the spectrasonic stuff. http://www.spectrasonics.net/instruments/stylusrmx.html
