On a good day, I can learn 5-10 songs a day. At that rate, my unprocessed new music could give me 10 new songs for 4.4 years. But in reality, I don’t spend every day learning new songs, and some songs are less catchy than others and take weeks to learn.
The music I have on my harddrive would likely continue to keep me entertained with occasional fresh music for at least 10 years — even if the music industry ceased to exist today.
