I've heard a lot of people make good backing tracks, and I just cant make seem to make mine sound decent

first off is there a way to get like fake drums? And can you use them with reaper? do you have to buy a program or somtin?

When doing backing tracks do you just do guitar, bass, and drums? do you guys layer your recordings?

I'm quite new to recording so any help is welcome

Mmm, Well, When I make a backing track I write the tab in guitarpro with all the instruments that I want (usually bass, drums and keys) and then I export that file into a MIDI file. With the Fruity Loops Studio (FLStudio) I change the MIDI sounds for samples (or VST's or soundfonts).

Using this procedure you can obtain a very good backing track.

Of course, you can use a MIDI file from a famous song (for instance Vai's "for the love of God") to make a really good backing track smile.gif
