Backing tracks are music arrangements that can be used for play along with. The tonal flavors in all sorts of scales makes them magic tools for playing over chords and music arrangements.

The piano parts are missing and so is the melody. Since you are playing the melody part, you should in general play on the middle and high register of the piano, to make it sound as best as possible.

Here you find backing tracks for piano categorized by scales and keys. The Major Scales Backing Tracks album, for example, include instrumental tracks made specially to be used with the Major scales.

You don't have to change scale with chord changes. Instead, you can use a single scale for the whole song. Click on “Show scale” below the audio element for a diagram of the scale to use.

It can be difficult to get the scale you use to line up with the track when where is no sheet music to lead you. But the central thing with these jam tracks is to train your ability to improvise. If you still need concrete playing advice, a tip is to look up licks. If you for example like blues, search online for blues licks and by incorporating them you have something to support your improvisation. In the next phase you should try to expand and modify some of the licks as well as increase your lick repertoire. See also How to improvise on piano.
