GuitarTube.org is a little site I built to help guitarists play along to backing tracks on YouTube. As I was building it, it occurred to me that it could be used for more than just backing tracks. For example, it's pretty handy when watching lessons too.

You can select from a variety of my favorite backing tracks I've found over time. When going from one song to the next, the fretboard below the video updates with safe notes to play. The goal is for you to have lots of jam time without ever having to interact with your computer, tablet, or phone.

Recently, I added the ability for you to search which enables you to use GuitarTube.org along with any videos on YouTube. As it does for backing tracks, the site will try to auto-detect the key and scales that would work the best with the video currently playing. I've got more work to do on this, but you can always select these manually.

I built this site over a few days while on vacation, but I'm not done yet. I have several improvements to make that I will personally use. Beyond that, I'll be happy to work on it if it turns out to be helpful to others. So if you're getting something out of the site or have some feedback, don't hesitate to let me know.
