This is my first time using Audacity, in fact any kind of audio software. I have clicked and dragged my backing track into Audacity, but when I click record and start recording, it only records after the end of the backing track so I can't hear anything.

How do I get the timeline to satrt at the beginning of the backing track when I record please? Thanks.
