    Default Secrets backing track? Anyone?

    I've searched high and low on this site and I came up with nothing, so that is why I'm posting this thread. I've enjoyed playing to a lot of the backing tracks on guitarbackingtrack.com, but sadly there is not one for one of my favorite VH songs "Secrets." Does any around here have one they can share? I can't find one on the internet and I certainly don't have the right equipment or know-how to try and make one myself. This has been bugging me for awhile now and that why I ask.

    I don't think there is one. A lot of the backing tracks come from the Guitar Hero VH instrument tracks and removing the guitar part. But since Secrets isn't in the game, it would be a lot harder to make a backing track for it.

    This guy records his own backing tracks (I think) and he puts them on YouTube. He's covered Secrets but not sure he has the backing track up. Maybe msg him

    I have seen this video and I have messaged him, but no reply. Oh well, I thought it was worth a shot asking you guys.

    The deal with "Secrets" is that you need an electric 12-string to properly learn it and play it right. The solo is the only part of the song that used an electric 6-string.

    As has been mentioned before, finding a good backing track is problematic because this song was not on Guitar Hero...I think there are some people that will create a backing track for just about anything for a price. You might look into paying someone to create one for you if you really must have a backing track.

    Whenever I learn something, I just listen to the records. When I make a clip to demonstrate how I think something may have been played by the original artist or to demo a guitar sound I just play whatever song from memory or I have the song playing on earphones while I play along with the original recording. I've never seen the use in playing with a backing track for a YouTube clip when you can just play along with the original recording in your headphones. There have been a couple of occasions where I have played along with a recording playing softly in the background so that my own playing is louder than what is on the recording, but just loud enough to where you can hear it...

    Secrets is one of my favorite VH songs. My buddies and I used to jam to it a lot and figured it out nicely on our 6 string guitars. It sounds pretty good and accurate when played along with the record. But as has been said, if you want it to be completely accurate, you'll need a 12 string.

    Be sure to post a clip of just the backing track so we can see how it turns out!

    Just finished my first attempt, won't really know how I like it until I get home from work. I don't think I can post it, but if anyone wants to hear it, pm me your email address and I'll send an mp3.

    I would suggest turning the distortion off and to try for a clean sound with maybe a very slight bit of chorus to make up for the lack of an electric 12-string. When you do get to the solo, you might want to try for more of an overdrive distortion. I say this because this difference in the clean 12-string track makes the solo stand out even more with it's overdrive distortion.
