Music question

Recommended Posts


I'm not sure if this is the right location to post this.

If it isn't then I apologize...


I recently created a RDR2 video and one of the criticisms of it was that it needed something in the background.


So I'm curious to know if there are any recommendations for free western music that will not cause me to get a mark on my YouTube channel for copyright violation.

There are a wealth of libraries and services that provide tens of thousands of tracks (such as Epidemic Sound and Premium Beat) but the issue you'll have is there's a fee to pay for access to the songs. Your best bet is looking in music archive sites or on YouTube where people very kindly produce simple but effective songs for certain moods. Do be careful though and research - just because a song is free to use, you may still need to ask for permission and some songs may not be licensed for use in other videos. It's a muddy world but the links I've provided should help.

I appreciate the info.

I wish I would have known this 24 hours ago LOL


I ended up just using that free song that came with the PlayStation editor.


The only problem with it...

It was only like 30 seconds long. So what I had to do was make the two 30 second Clips overlap each other so the timing lined up.

Then I basically just used that 30-second audio over and over and over.


Which is kind of lackluster in my opinion, but I guess it worked out okay.

I mean it didn't come out awful.


I really wish Rockstar would get with Sony and release some better music for the editor.


Anyway thanks again for the recommendations. I'm going to have to give them all a look.

Not a problem. I searched for "free cowboy music" on YouTube and it yielded decent results. Another source I forgot to mention is Soundcloud, though it depends entirely on genre and how you intend to use it. This user has playlists and many tracks available covering things like coffee houses, restaurants, the seasons of the year, telephone hold music, whatever you feel like.
