This script generates simple MIDI Blues backing tracks to improve your playing. You can select any key and tempo and choose between the most popular Blues rhythms or add your own progression. You can also download all your tracks. They are not copyrighted in any way, so you can use them as you like. Keep on playing!

How to use:

  • Select key, tempo and type
  • Optionally select other options
  • Select MIDI player and submit
  • For custom tracks, enter the bars in semitones like 1-6-1-1 for I-IV-I-I
  • Example: in E 1-6-1-1 generates E-A-E-E (why semitones? You can play every note, even flats and sharps)
  • If you get browser errors, disable Java applet, use download only
