Using just verbal commands you can select the track you want and play it.<br/><br/>Backing Buddy requires linking to your free account on If you don't have an account it is easy to set one up when you enable Backing Buddy.<br/><br/>(Liking is required so that if you would like to play more than just the tracks that are available by default, you can login to your account and select different tracks that will instantly be available for you to ask Alexa to play!)<br/><br/>Backing Buddy is the friend you jam with who is available 24 hours a day and won't cringe when you miss a note!<br/><br/>For more information go to or email me at directly:
