Skydog911, to remove the guitars, I used a few editing tricks in GoldWave. This can be done with alot of older tunes as long as the panning of the guitars is right and the mix isn't too wet. Basically, you isolate the stereo tracks and mute the side with guitars and then copy the guitar-less side to the deleted side(to keep the stereo sound. Also, for removing solos, I use a vocal removal plugin since solos are usually panned right up the middle. I posted a few Zeppelin backing tracks that I made using this method a while ago. It's a "hit & miss" method, but basically...the older the recording is, the better luck you'll have. Newer mixing techniques make this method impossible on newer recordings
