I am completely lost trying to record music on my chromebook

I have two chromebooks and a Yamaha YPT-320 keyboard. I have been trying like heck and failing at finding a way to record sounds from the keyboard to the chromebook. I would like to record multiple instrumental tracks that I could bring together and mess with in a garageband/ableton type program. [more inside]

Cheaters getting a taste of their own medicine

I'm trying to put together a playlist of songs where cheaters get cheated on. I've got two by Denise LaSalle ("Your Husband Is Cheating On Us" and "Paper Thin"), plus "Who's Making Love" by Johnnie Taylor and "I Was Checking Out She Was Checkin In" by Don Covey. Any suggestions for more like this? What I've got is all R&B, because those are the songs that came to mind. I'm open to any genre that fits the theme.

Can you suggest more music like this?

I recently discovered this rendition of O Magnum Mysterium on tumblr and it took my breath away. I mean that truly - the first time I listened, it gave me goosebumps and then brought me to tears. Something about the vocal harmonies coming together and then drifting apart and the sound resonating off the walls of the bathroom and aaagggh! I need more of this sort of music in my life.

Simple CD player for a person with Alzheimer's

My mother-in-law has Alzheimer's. She loves (and has always loved) music. But her old CD player just broke. I need to find a new CD player that is as simple as possible to use. Ideally, it would have just three buttons--open/close (to insert the CD), play, and stop--and it would be possible to connect it to external speakers (with or without a receiver is ok). She has excellent speakers and a huge CD collection. Can you suggest a specific player that meets these conditions? [more inside]

Help me find some good Chinese rap?

I know it is out there, I'm just not sure where to look... I tend to like more melodic or verbally interesting stuff. But I'm keeping an open mind, as I don't really know what is out there. Anyone have any good suggestions, or at least good places to look? I'm a Chinese language student at the intermediate level (meaning I'm ok, but can't read pages and pages of Chinese websites)

Does this minor chord progression (i-III-VI) have a name?

Over the past few years, I've developed a sort of obsession with this tense-sounding chord progression and have noticed it in 1980s-present popular/alternative music. I've wasted too much time trying to find its name - or do songwriters just like the way it sounds? Think "Centuries", "Handclap", and "Sunday Bloody Sunday"...(examples inside) [more inside]

Help me find drop-in pop choirs.

This post featuring Choir! Choir! Choir! reminded me of Pop Up Chorus (also featured on the blue). Are there other drop-in, no-commitment pop choirs like these two? How should I search for them? I'm particularly interested in the San Francisco Bay and New York City areas, but would love to learn about these sorts of groups anywhere.

If you could time travel to see a band in 1984, what band would you see?

Hey Me-fites, I'm dipping my toes into the pool of time travel novels. My main character is going back to 1984--because I want to write about 1984 Vancouver, pre Expo, pre Olympics, when it was a hick town on the far edge of the world. When my characters back in time, he's going to check out some bands, preferably pre-famous, you know, $5 cover, one of three acts, tiny clubs, etc. So, oh wise ones, what band should he find himself seeing?

Instrumental music for a show about bullying

Hi all -- I'm putting together a radio programme about bullies and am looking for instrumental music to use in between the interviews -- somewhat creepy and menacing but not too melodramatic, if that makes sense. Any (and all) suggestions are welcome. Thank you for your help.

I've had this song chorus in my head since 1990. Please send help.

I went to summer camp in northern Minnesota in the late 80s/early 90s. I was exposed to all kinds of awesome music there from kids all over the country, which was a huge big thing for young midwestern me. I remember sitting on a cold lake beach listening intently to a mix tape one of the older girls was playing, and there is a song that has stuck in my head ever since. The chorus is something like "So wave goodbye to everything you knew." I can still noodle it out on piano and guitar, but I can't identify the song. Please help. [more inside]

Name that Music Video: '80s New Wave/Pop Edition

The band is playing in the middle of a (house) party and the video pans around the party. I want to say I remember there being general 80s weirdness/fashion and maybe some skulls? I also want to say the song was one of those that could seem like a double-entendre for masturbation, or else kind of sexually suggestive in some way; unfortunately googling "80s songs about masturbation" didn't help. Also, the band may or may not have been British. Can anyone decipher which song I'm thinking about?

How do I get this guitar tone from Bettie Serveert's Kid's Allright?

What gear do I need to achieve this specific guitar tone from Bettie Serveert's "Kid's Allright"? I'm looking to replicate the sound the guitar makes from about 2:29 to 2:42. I really like that heavy, machine-like grinding distortion. I assume there's some kind of effects unit that's key to getting this sound. Any suggestions as to what that might be?

So, I really like a rolling finger-picked guitar (and/or other strings). Song's like Steve Miller's I Love You, The Dead's Friend of the Devil, and I suppose anything that Leo Kottke ever did, ex. Ojo. But al of those are almost fifty years old. Help me update my listening.
