Whilst roaming the internets I’ve stumbled across some fun sites and decided to share them with everyone.
- For you music lovers. I highly recommend Last.fm. This site creates a profile based on the music you listen too and recommends similar artists and lets you know about concerts in the area. Also, you can listen to streaming music of really good quality. Another good streaming site is Grooveshark. And lastly there’s always Pandora.
- Another really cool resource for hardcore music aficionados is the cylinder project. This site is dedicated to converting all old cylinder recordings to a modern format and putting them on the internet. These are some of the first recordings ever made; it’s realllly cool.
- To stay up to date on the latest trends this is a good site. It provides the top plays on college radios across the country.
- There are ways to use Google to find your music. These sites use advanced search options to search directories where you can… listen to music… or maybe right click. One here one here aaaaand one here
- For Musicians the Petrucci Music Library has sheet music online for free.
- For tabs Ultimate Guitar Tabs is great. So, is 911tabs. Indie guitar tabs is a great site, but focused on the indie genre. You can also check out tabs I’ve done here.
- For you ukulele lovers out there. Uke Hunt is fantastic.
Know of any others?
