20190825 Most computers today have hardware for producing great sound, which, when combined with good speaker systems, rival the traditional audiophile's setup.

With the explosive growth of mp3 (which is popular but, unfortunately, has had patent and licensing issues) and ogg (which is a popular open standard alternative) you will need a suitable player on your desktop to enjoy your music and other audio content. Many choices exist for GNU/Linux, with rhythmbox a common choice.

GNU/Linux supports listening to, recording, and modifying audio through very many tools.

A Wikipedia-like resource cataloguing the world's music is MusicBrainz. It is maintained by a community of users who freely contribute to it and provides discographies, metadata tags and much more.

See Chapter 55 for details of dealing specifically with sheet music printing and guitar tabulates. See Chapter 34 for setting up audio cards and related audio issues.
