Since I've moved back to San Francisco, I'm looking for a full time music gig again, as I'm without a band. I've been answering ads for established bands that are, for whatever reason, in need of a bassist. Many of these bands have webpages with mp3s and other song samples posted. Here's my question. When I "click the link" for these songs, they play in Realplayer. Now, that's great to hear a sample, but I couldn't learn the song that way. I have a dial-up connection, and they usually "buffer", (I hate buffering), for a good 4-5 minutes before playing. If I'm learning their song, I can't do it that way. Is there any way to save these songs as an mp3, or whatever? I have no interest in stealing these people's songs, burning them to disc and cruising down the street. I want to have the edge on rehearsals, and while I can wait for them to mail me their CD or whatever, I'd like to say, "Don't bother, I learned the songs from your webpage." I do have several types of music software as well, if they help, or is this impossible?
