:cool:

I do want a dead instructional DVD, but I am not sure which one to get.

here is a NFA backing track that I found

I've downloaded several of Guitar BT's tracks. They're good, especially the ones with real instruments.


There's a Dead instructional DVD that's pretty good called Grateful Dead Legendary Licks, though it doesn't have backing tracks. But that's really about it except for some acoustic oriented stuff, to my knowledge.

There's also Guitar Port Online that has a number of bts, but only Franklin's Tower is offered for the Dead.

I'm sure you know about the youtube video by jdarks and others. They're really the best out there. But again, no backing tracks.

Any thoughts on my question regarding how to remove the lead or rhythm guitar from a wav file?

I'd just go for getting looper and make your own loops. Its easy then to make GD loops to play lead over. I have a boss rc-20xl (was a bit pricey-250, they make a cheaper one though for 170). Very easy to use, very fun, and most definately helpful in learning lead.

I use jamtracks all the time. Great to improv to.
