I googled 'backing track for Moon River'. I gave a listen to everything that was for sale. The one that I really like is posted on SoundCloud by a person named 'svitrak'. I couldn't find it for sale anywhere on my own. I left a comment (claghorn) but no bites so far. I didn't see a means of contacting 'svitrak' so I could ask him where he purchased it from. If I knew the source, I would buy it. I'm hoping that maybe someone here can direct me to the source of this backing track. Thanks, jim.

I have a midi file of the tune, let me know your preferred key. I could post it on soundcloud and allow downloads for you. Also free.
PS. Tomorrow.

I'm looking for it in the key of C. That will put me in D on the tenor. Thanks again. Jim

If you have audacity play the track and press record. Simples.
Thanks, Colin. I don't have audacity but will get it and learn how to use it. Thanks. Compared to many here, I have some catching up to do.

Will do in the morning, and PM you the link.
This bt is not the one I was looking for. It forces me to put the notes in the right places whereas the other one has all the lead notes there and all I have to do is follow along. So this track is more challenging but I'm able to follow it. I'm a beginner by the way. I'm trying to get to the stage where I can post an example of my progress. Thanks again. jim

No, it's perfect. I got the one I was looking for from c9off a few minutes ago. I'm listening to the one you sent me as I type. I've been listening to this tune for most of my life so I'm able to follow your track easily. This is the one I'm going to practice with. Thanks again. jim
