Many players have honed their skills over the years by practicing from prerecorded accompaniments that came with sheet music ("music minus one"). These were pressed on vinyl LP's for decades and are now even more practical with their production on CD (compact disc). Many have each selection in two versions, one complete with the solo recorded by a fine artist and one with only the accompaniment. This give the aspiring artist a chance to play with a professional accompaniment and to emulate the artist on the recording or one that he or she heard on other recordings. The listing here (follow the link at the bottom for many more titles) will let any instrumentalist find suitable material to build skills.
