It’s alway more enjoyable to practice your drums to a backing track. Jam buddies are not always around. So have fun with this list.
There are a lot of free drum backing tracks to find on YouTube, but having a nice sorted list of them would come in handy I guess.
There is a loooot to listen to out there. Some “best musicians podcasts lists” contain 10, 20 or more podcasts and no one has the time to check every single one of them. So I picked 3 that are actually good and I personally listen to them.
When you are starting out with transcribing, a whole song can be a little overwhelming. A practice buddy is a great idea: he plays a part and you try to play it be ear (and eventually write it down if you practice music / rhytm notation).
…but you don’t always have a buddy for practice around. So I prepared 6 simple short bass lines for transcribing / ear training / rhythm notaton practice.
First: you have the line played once. Then you have it played looped, so you can “get it” easier. You can just try to play it by ear or (if you are more ambitious) try to write it down in a notation software like guitar pro.
Check the tabs / music notation later in the pdf file or download the guitar pro file if you prefer using gp. There is also an exported midi file.
Have fun practicing.

I always enjoy it more to practice my instrument (guitar, bass or piano) to some nice drum backing track. A metronome is just fine if your mind is fresh and you practice a specific part while fully concentrated, but if you are tired after work and just want to have fun, drum tracks are a great way to go.
There are thousands of free drums backing tracks to find on YouTube, but having a nice sorted list of them would come in handy I guess.
So I decided to make my own (sorted by genre and tempo) list of YT backing tracks.
