2. Either sign up for an account with one of the sites listed under "Sharing Musical Tastes" or create a song using JamStudio. I enjoyed playing around with JamStudio. I registered and created a few (so-called) songs. I'm sure this site gets better if you pay. As a free user, I only had access to 4 beat composition. Also, there were no 7 th chords such as G7. It was fun to try out all the different effects such as Clouds, Rocking Horse, Chimes and Bells. You could change the tempo and choose between piano or guitar, etc. I'll spend some more time on this site later on. If you made a song you really liked, you could even email it to friends.
3. Write a blog post about your discoveries. Most of these sites have appeal to younger generations than mine. However, I am glad to have the opportunity to explore them. It's good to know what's going on with young adults and twenty/thirty-somethings.
