I am not that fluent with rsync, but my guess is that you forgot that your line is first handled by the shell (bash). This will expand the *.mp3 and the * will never be seen by rsync (let alone worked on).

I have no problems with luckybackup and did not imply that I did. One
nice thing about linux, there are many ways to skin the cat. The OP was
referring to CLI use so luckybackup has no bearing to his question.
I have never used luckybackup so I cannot give advice with it’s use.
Can it be used in a batch mode via cron? No, then CLI is better. It’s
all a matter of preference.

That’s good to know. I wish all GUI programs would show what the CLI
command would be.
