After trying time after time to get a band together I became a solo artist, and I'm currently recording my debut EP. My plan was to release this EP and then make another file without the parts I plan on playing live. Essentially having a backing track without the parts I would be playing live. After chatting with some friends I found out some bars and venues in my area won't allow me to use a backing track for my performance. This brings me to my question, is using a backing track bad?
