ZZ Top - Pincushion

Post by EL34 » Sat Mar 31, 2007 8:24 am

I was in a Billy Gibbons mood this week and so I recorded one of my favs from the ZZ Top Antenna album.

Pincushion - Love the lyrics too!
Here's my first mix.
Hows it sound so far?

Thanks G.

Right click your mouse on top of the file link.
Choose Save Target as

Save the file to your computer and then you can play it in your favorite player such as Winamp, Windows media player, I tunes, etc.

I just uploaded a new 192kps fixed bit mp3 for those having trouble with the previous variable bit rate mp3

Think you misunderstood.How do I post my own tunes for others to hear,so that when people click on the link,their player opens and starts to play the tune?G.

Oh, ok.

Well you have to have a web server or web service that will let you upload your tunes.
Once your tunes are on a web server somewhere, you can just make a link to them.

Most ISP's will give you a small amout of free server space just for being their customer.

Hmm, I don't know, maybe others here know.

I have a web server for my company so I just upload to my company server.

You can get web hosting for as little as $5 a month I think.
There are places like soundclick that let you upload music but I don't know how they work.
