10 ways to use your own network for music recordings

For any aspiring musicians that get around to recording a few of their creations, here are a few ways you use your own network to help organize, share and improve your recordings. How musicians can have their own networks.

  • 1. Store useful websites in a central place for easy reference.  This could be links to cover songs you like to play, ones for instructions or others that you find useful.
  • 2. Add relevant blogs to the news reader to stay informed of what’s new.  This could be blogs from specific musical niches, blogs from bands or musicians you listen to and other as appropriate.
  • 3. For any recordings you’ve done, you can upload them to the Audio application, yourself and others can listen directly from your network.
  • 4. Include the lyrics in the description of the file you’ve uploaded, helpful for others to follow along and make suggestions if appropriate.  If using a simple chord pattern, include that as well for other musicians to play from.
  • 5. Have separate networks for smaller but higher quality audiences.  This way you can share at your own pace, no need for spending time releasing the basement tapes before their ready.  On your own networks, you know who you’re sharing with, they know you and are thus much more likely to actually listen and give a response.  If it’s all thumbs up, then maybe it’s fine to do something more.  If not, well, maybe there’s something missing, could be just a small tweak or completely different, either way if it’s not working, no need to share what’s not working with the entire Internet.
  • 6. You or others can listen to a collection on continuous play, helpful to review and listen to songs while doing something else.  Others can also download to their preferred music player to listen in other environments.
  • 7. People can add comments or feedback to each song while listening to it.  You can add a newsletter to your network to automatically stay informed of any new content or comments.
  • 8. You can print the audio file to have a paper copy of a song, having lyrics to play on your own or adding additional tracks to it.
  • 9. Store backups of songs you’ve written, such as a word file to upload to Documents as well as backups of your various recordings.
  • 10. Add websites of places you thinking of playing in public, such as for different open mics or other venues.
