Pandora is a lot of fun, but it can be frustrating too. You want to hear the rock songs you love, but you’re getting pop and…was that country? Here are some tips for creating a station of your rock favorites.
You can use artist seeds or track seeds to create a station. Both give Pandora an idea of the kind of music you like, but track seeds show exactly what sound you’re looking for. (Most artists have a variety of songs over an album, let alone a career, and you can end up with ballads when you really wanted punk, or vice versa. Confused? Here‘s a little help . ) The more seeds you include, the better Pandora will understand your taste. Just type a song title into the New Station bar, then click the Add Variety button under the station that appears on the left. Now you can add as many seeds as you want – the more the better.
When you’ve set your station up, spend some time paying attention to it. Thumb up the songs you like – if you really love one, make it a seed – and thumb down the ones you don’t. Soon Pandora will get the hang of it, and you’ll be rocking along to your favorites!
