I am trying to listen to the audio of a lick in guitar tricks. I cannot hear it when I click on listen. Could anybody tell me how to do this thing?

If you're using Winamp, mine has the same problem. For some reason, if there are any spaces in the file name or any of the directories it's in, Winamp will think the spaces make it separate files, and won't play it, which is a real pain in the ass. For me, with Win98 and IE Explorer 5.0, there are spaces in the Temporary Internet Files subdirectories in the Windows directory, and so Winamp gets confused.

What I do is right click on 'listen', choose 'Save Target As', and save it.

I am using AOL 5.0 and I have real player. This may not be the right answer to your question. I am a computer novice.

The sound files are in MP3 format. Realplayer only supports it's own file formats as far as I know. Winamp is a common MP3 player. Download it from www.winamp.com

ekstatis is right. The mp3 audio format is relatively new and not supported by AOL (as far as I know). That means that you will need a program that plays mp3 files, just like you need the real audio program to play real audio files. Winamp is the one I use as well, it installs easily and downloads quick.
