Guitar Center is having a King of the Blues competition in their stores, and they have posted 25 backing tracks to download for free. The contestants have to choose one to play for their spot in the try outs.

The finals are in November, but the store finals are Sept. 10, so I don't think these tracks will stay online forever. Here's the link:

Wow Emir, you're fast! I was at my local store today and I asked one of the guys if they were expecting a big turnout and he said yes and asked me if I wanted to sign up. Haha, I barely play out loud, much less in public competition, but I want to go to the store tryouts and hear some locals, maybe meet some local players finally, and spread the word about GMC.

I am curious Pedja, where you found these before, was it a similar competition at GC or elsewhere?
