Okay so i was just messing around with my player, listening to Duncan Hills Coffee Jingle by Dethklok to be accurate. Okay, so i realised my headphones wasn't enterely plugged in into my mp3, causing my song to only play 1 track, which was the backround track for Duncan Hills Coffe Jingle. What happened was that Skwisgaar's Solo at the end dissapeared as well along with Nathans voice, by doing this i could play the Duncan hills solo myself with the backing solo aswell on the original track I've kinda used this method for many songs i would like to learn the guitar track for.

There may be some effects tought, sometimes the voice gets into a really heavy reverb or there may only be alot of weird noise.

But after all i find this quite helpful instead of removing the vocal track with advanced programs etc

To do this you simply plug out your input for the headset halfway out, by then you may notice that one of the tracks (mostly vocal track or the lead guitar track) will dissapear, causing you only to hear the second guitar and the backing vocals.

Any of you discovered this before? Try it out, maybe you guys might be able to do it as well I would like to know if this happens to everyone or maybe it's just my mp3 player that is extremely awesome

Ive tried quite a few processors to remove vocals and usually the songs are mixed so it takes out a guitar or two and messes up the audio a lot when you take the vox out...

Your headphones were only half way plugged in feeling only a mono signal to them.
...probably from the R channel...

Mics and guitars are usually recorded in mono which is on the L channel so only getting audio from the R channel will take out some parts of the mix.

That's just getting the two tracks subtracting eachother, which will only work on songs that have only the vocal track panned to the middle, but yeah it usually works.

Well, I don't even need to use headphones for this, because we took our computer to Best Buy because it was still under warranty and we needed to get it fixed because something happened. And when we took it in, the fixed what was wrong. But when they put the chassis back together, they didn't realize that we might want to hear anything, so the jack where the speakers would go is now only halfway out of the hole, so we can't plug in the regular speakers. So my dad found an old computer speaker and hooked it to the subwoofer, so now we can only hear the left... or right, I don't know... side of the music if it's in stereo.

It's been like that for quite a while, and we're too lazy to take it back, because we're no longer under warranty and they're just douchbags anyway. They'll probably end up screwing something else up.

+1.

look at the jack.

see those two black rings, that's telling you it's a stereo jack, one channel for each speaker, with corresponding connections inside the player, halfway in means one channel,not 'different tracks'. shits not done like that. so if somebody used a different technique in production, you might just end up with bass and vox, or if they're doing some mad panning in the mix it will be all over the place. you can choose which way the sound it panned, hard right is through the right speaker, dead centre is same through both, and hard left is the opposite of right.
