The Internet Music Mapping Project

This is the links-only page for “Beyond YouTube: The Internet Music Mapping Project.” Individual pages exist for each of the categories below, with descriptions of each site linked to with that section.

The guide started as an eBook and then was uploaded onto a sister site, The Daily Music Break. I won’t bring them to this site because of my understanding of how Google works. Since the capsules make use of the “about” pages of the sites to which the guide links, the search engine could think I am plagiarizing.

There are two kinds of links. One is to home pages of sites.  There are some great ones, many of which are obscure labors of love. The other type links to specific content and articles–about bands and musicians, videos, music-related books and movies–that might be of interest.

The initial vision was to create separate guides for the major genres. I started with rock and then realized that one bigger guide was the way to go. The initial approach explains why the guide now tends to have more rock sites. It will balance out over time.
