There is a lot of good material in these sites, the biggest drawback
is that there is no good search system to get to what you're looking
for without wading through all the not-so-good stuff. What I've found
what works for me is taking an hour or so to wade through the mass of
material as quickly as I can and downloading anything that I think
might be useful in the future. I've gotten pretty good at picking out
tracks I like after only listening to 8-20 bars of music. I also keep
a spreadsheet of all the tracks I download, the title, artist, length,
and URL, in this way I can cover my ass if someone (I'm looking at
you YouTube) questions my usage. When I'm in the process of editing
some video I need only go through my download archive.
