I play new games and hear their soundtracks.
Of course, that actually happens during the course of playing new games; I don't search for music itself.

Usually my friends'll tell me to listen to an artist or song they like. For the most part it's good stuff, so I'll eventually end up downloading it.

So many ways but usually through Pandora or typing "Bands like *Bandnamehere*" which is how I found quite a few new bands I've been listening to this week.

I discover music a load of different ways, though the most prevalent is through other people's recommendations. For instance, on another forum, a member's username is Mogwai, and I was curious as to what it meant. He told me that it was the Scottish post-rock band. I tried it out (via Youtube, since internet radios suck and don't play post-rock music right o h m y g o d) and loved it, and was, from that point, a fan of post-rock music with the discovery of other bands in the same genre, etc.

I never discover new genres/artists via Youtube because when I use Youtube I end up watching specific video series' or listening to specific artists/watching specific videos. Honestly, I can't think of a time I've legitimately browsed the site for new things. I'm usually referred to things or I happen to stumble upon a genre/artist on a site or wiki.

I usually discover new music through the radio. If I don't know the name of the particular song i like, i write down a few lyrics and then google them. The song usually comes up in the first five or so results. Friends also give me new music to listen to, not to mention I browse Youtube for the latest hits.

I do not have any specific "way" of discovering music.
Usually, it simply happens by me.
Seeing as I don't dislike anything in particular, I enjoy everything that happens across me.

I have found that the best music finds me when I least expect it. I'm not intentionally looking for it. I may be browsing through iTunes or I come across a music video and it all goes from there.

Either via the radio, though the playlists are somewhat limited/repetitive, or via an app on my phone called Deezer which essentially allows you to search/play/download any song that you want for free with multiple ways of finding random songs that you've never heard of before or countless songs from a single artist and having them all play at once. I've ended up finding so many great songs and artists this way so now I've developed a habit of leaving the app to choose any random song it can find and there's a fair few gems amongst them. The only other way I tend to come across music is from friends/siblings playing it, but most of my friends like the same kind of stuff as me so that's also pretty limited.

I find tons of music! I usually find my music by being active on Got-djent & Ultimate-Guitar. I also like to take note of what my favorite musicians like to jam to as well.
