Sharing sound files. What music database is most efficient/accessible?


By sharing sound clips of guitar riffs and tutorial examples, teaching guitar is more immersive than ever. So far, though only having 2 students, I have been using a membership to Apple Music which gives me access to many albums with just guitar riffs and samples at a monthly flat rate- having incredible potential at progressing knowledge of the guitar. The issue with all of this of coarse is the ability to share individual songs with my students tailored to their needs most effectively. Trying to bypass using a burned disc for each lesson, are there any additional thoughts? It's good to be here and I'm excited to get to know and share ideas for being successful guitar teachers! Thanks!

Re: Sharing sound files. What music database is most efficient/accessible?


I just downloaded a free program that can record anything that is played on my computer. I then go to youtube and record the songs which gets turned into mp3's.

I then use a program I bought that can slow down and change the pitch of recording so I can create slowed down tracks for my student to practice along with. I can also insert a disc into my computer if I happened to have the CD of the song we are working on and then bring it up in this program to do the same thing.I also go to guitarbackingtrack.com to get song backing tracks which again I can slow down in the program I have.

I send all these tracks to my students. Mostly though I upload it to a program I use called Mymusicstaff where students can log in and download any tracks,pdf's etc... This way they can either just play the tracks on their computer or burn a disc themselves.

I do have I think it's 2 students though that I need to burn discs for though because they don't have a desktop or laptop. One student bought a CD package of 100 discs or so which I use to burn disc for him. No way I could afford to burn a disc every single time I want them to work with a track. One track for a disc is kind of a waste but if they want to pay for the disk then so be it.

I don't know if that helps or not. Hopefully it did! Lol!!!

So the program transmits the song digitally? I didn't know that YouTube would do that similarly. Do you generally make a YouTube playlist of these songs you work on?

No, the program records whatever is on your screen. You get the program ready, go to youtube,press record on the recording program, play the video and it will record the audio of the youtube. Not sure but I think it might record it strait from your computers soundcard. Not sure on this though. You can record any audio from anywhere. As long as you can hear something on your computers speakers you can record it.

Probably not "legal" to do but it's not like you are recording full albums or anything. It's just to help students learn the songs quicker and have fun playing along with the tracks.
