Steel Band Sound Files


I put these files together a few years ago for a friend who needed backing tracks. These are full band arrangements so you can practice your part.

These mp3's are up to tempo. If that's are too fast, look on-line for software that can slow down an mp3. I use the 'Amazing Slow Downer,’ but there are lot of them out there.  A quick Google search and you’ll find one.  Only a couple of these tunes have the changes in the Lead part.  If you’re soloing, they are all Diatonic to the Key Signature.
