General Google Play Music - Song Storage Location on G4

Hi folks - new here. This is my first LG phone after owning an S3, S4, and S5. The non-replaceable battery made me jump ship to the G4 and after about three weeks I am generally pleased. I am trying to load all my music onto my phone's SD card with Google Play Music so I don't have to stream it when I am not on WiFi. I have Play Music's download set to SD Card, but I can't find where on the card the music is located after I download a song from my cloud collection of purchased songs on Google. They all still seem to force download to the phone, not the card.

So, my question is: How can I get my music to download to my SD card on the G4. Or alternatively, where is Google music stored on the phone (what folder), and how would I drag/drop it to a folder on my SD card (to what folder)?

Thank you!

Hi @Vectra3000 and welcome to Android Forums :)

I can't verify at the moment (no data service to start a download), but I think Google Play Music stores the downloaded music buried under /sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.music/files/music/.

To change where Google Music downloads music:

While in Music

Menu -> Settings -> Storage location -> External
