hey i found this "band in a box" thing and liked it, unfortunatly its 60$. what im looking for is a free site that will play chords while you solo over the chords.and also maybe just the chords reapeating for some songs, like just the chords in the back for stairway during the solo so i can improvise? any 1 know of anything?

Band in a Box is good I use it a lot. It has a lot of advantages and is well worth the cash.

Annother option is Audacity.
It allows you to record tracks on your computer, meaning you can play your own backing tracks. Advantage is obviously that you are the one playing the backing, so you have a lot of freedom in your backing track.

This site seems to have some kind of program as well under the Jam tab, havent used it myself so cant comment on it.

Other than that there are CD's you can buy with backing tracks.

Dont need a webcam, just get a converter plug, your computer should have a line in. Plug it in there and in your guitar and presto, can even adjust gain.
Those plugs go for like 5 bucks

Band in a Box is amazing. I love that program.

The jam track on this site is useful, but limited to three rhythms, which could do with improvement. But still handy.

You don't need a webcam or a converter plug. Just get a mic, or, use your lead (guitar chord) get a big to small jack and plug it into the back of your computer where there will be a green plug in for it which indicates the mic input (should be next to the headphones/speakers output).

... My desire for a good beating aside, your last option would be to download free backing tracks, there are some sites dedicated to them.
Obviously it doesn't allow you to make your own progressions but you will have good backing tracks to practice improvisation over.
