It is the most commonly used method, but people also find a lot of disadvantages about this method. But I think it still important for people to manager the basic method.
Firstly, you need one USB cable to connect your LG G3 to the computer, after your computer recognizing it, you can create a new folder where you would like to keep the newly come music files. Then, you should check the music files on your computer, which might take a while, since you might had saved music at many folders on your computer, and this time no third-party tool to help you organize and display them in order for you. Anyway, after selecting the music, copy and paste them to your LG G3. This process seems very simple but actually very time-consuming and very likely to occur errors during the transferring. Never mention the format will remain incompatible after transferring to LG G3.
So, if you had many files and only had little time, you should not keep this method from your consideration.
