Today I'll show you how to use /playsound command in a command block

1.Place 1 Command Block and put button against it

2.Insert /playsound [x] [y] [z] [volume] [pitch] [minimumvolume] (<> = Required [] = Optional) in to command block

sound - location of sound that want
player - who you want to hear (use @p for nearest player, @r for random player and @a for all players)
x y z - where this sound comes from (player will hear sound from specify coordinates)
pitch - a pitch of sound
minimumvolume - MinVol of sound

3.When you hit button you'll hear fuse sound that can prank other player :P

How to get sound location?

1.Go into .minecraft and go into assets folder

2. Go in to sound folder and search your sound (i'll use fuse sound as same in this tutorial)

3.Use this pattern to be a location <storage-folder>.<sound-name> and it'll be random.fuse (fuse sound storage in random folder)

4.Now! you get sound location to use in /playsound!

If you put /playsound ~ ~ ~ 50, it plays even if you move away from the command block

No, it only works in 1.8. Why are you in 1.7.2 still?

Replace the sound "classic_hurt.ogg" with a musics. It's not used anymore. Same goes for the old explosion sound.

With the new snapshots, sound folder doesn't exist in vanilla minecraft. All there is now is indexes and objects folders.

Go into resources and you'll find sound
e.g.C:UsersUSERNAMEAppDataRoaming.minecraftresourcesnewsoundportal
