Default sth like a bass

Hi! I am a greek child, 15 years old and amateur e-guitar player. Me and 2-3 friends want to play 4 songs in a school feast. All the songs have bass and we yet didn't find somebody who plays bass. So, we want to have the bass playing from a PC and the rest of us playing normally, live ! Does sb know where can I find a mp3 that only have the bass from a song? I have searched many times but didn't find sth.

it's generally impossible to find single instrument tracks of songs outside of the recording studio. the best you'll likely find is a backing track in an instructional video but those usually have the bass AND drums.

why not just rent a bass for the gig and take turns, at the same time showing that you and your friends are capable of playing more than one instrument?

Maybe you could use some composer software and write the bass riff out on that, and then just play the program?

sorry, i was under the impression you had multiple guitar players. i was thinking they could take turns playing the bass instead of more guitar.
