Hi List

I imported a mp3 file into Audacity. There is a long silence at the start of the track which I want to remove.

 Do I need to place a right bracket at the start of the track to mark the section I want to remove?

I pressed the spacebar to start listening. When I heard the click of the beginning of the recording I pressed spacebar before pressing shift f6 to skip about 2 minutes of silence.

When I pressed the spacebar to listen whether or not I'm at the spot where the actual audio starts there was still just silence.

How can I specify the time to be removed faster to save some time?

If this is a clumsy description I hope the more experienced folks will be able to make sense of it all. I tried to find the answer in the manual but am still too dumb to fully understand what the manual is explaining to me, smiles.
