Discover how you can download music and pick out songs that you like from a music album without buying the whole thing or maybe you want the whole thing.
Did you ruin your albums when you were younger playing them on a turntable with a bad needle. Ever put pennies on the head of the turntable arm to try to stop it from skipping? Ah the good old days.
Downloading music online is easy. You don’t need to know any special computer skills.
If you never bought music online you are missing out on one of the things computers are really useful for.
If you like guitar music the internet is a great place for finding specific songs without going from store to store, also for independant artists that don’t have their Cd’s in stores.
1) Find songs from the past that bring back good memories.
2) Find a song by the name or the lyrics.
3) You can pick any music style from Classical to Jazz.
4) Download one song or the whole album.
5) Legal song downloads cost under $1.00 dollar.
6) Most album downloads are under $10.00.
7) No high speed broadband internet connection.
The first 2 reasons from up above are what got me downloading music on the internet. Did you ever hear a song on the radio you really liked but could never catch the name of it or the artists name?
The Gin Blossoms song Found Out About You was one I found with the lyrics. I never knew there was a group named Gin Blossoms until I did a search for “found out about you”. Nice Song.
Music Download Types
There are 2 main types of audio files. One type is for CD’s and the other is for downloads.
There are tons of audio file names but these are for the individual audio players. The codecs or translating software are pretty much the same.
CD’s used to be .wav format and might still be but when I make a CD on my computer it comes out as .cda. i don’t know if this is the new .wav or just an addition. But they doesn’t matter for our purposes.
The other format is for downloading audio files and there is only one that has the top position and that’s mp3. This format gives the best quality for the smallest file size and this is the format most music downloads will be in.
Most audio software installed on computers can play these files you although might have to list it in the options or preference section of your audio software.
mp3 Download Music – Amazon
A lot of the other sites want you to join and charge you monthly. Here I can come and go, I might not want to download anything for month or two so why waste money.
Tribute Albums Alert
One thing to look for when you download from sites is there are a lot of tribute albums, other people playing your artists songs.
This usually happens with the biggies like the Who or The Beatles. Just double check the artist name before you buy

No Beatle mp3 Downloads
The Beatles don’t have their music in an mp3 format for some reason. You can only buy their CD’s.
The Beatles are the group that got me playing guitar so they are my number 1 group of all time.
They have quite a few albums to choose from along with some greatest hits too.
Beatles Albums (Opens New Window)
Some people aren’t into all the download music and just want a CD to listen to.
Some albums are meant to be listened to as a whole song even though they are separate songs. “Tommy” from “The Who” was like this.
If this is the way you like to enjoy music the internet has any CD that you want just type in the artist and all their albums will come up or type in a CD title and that will come up.
Find your favorite.
