Peter, a good thread suggestion judging by the comments. Here are a few I would like to see. They could be a combination of or variance of previously listed ones.They would be titled.
Performance-tips on stage presentation, material (inc jokes), audience involvement,
Gear Review-comments by members on gear they have actually used.
All About Me-pictures of members entertaining, their studios, their gear.
Music Source-where members can see and/or hear other members arrangement for songs.

Thanks for reading. D

I like the idea about sharing performance tips, clever one-liners, audience interaction techniques, humorous songs. There's a lot of performing experience here. I'm sure there's a treasure trove of good ideas waiting to be mined

The idea of local in-person user groups getting together to "jam" on BIAB would be outstanding.

Possibly another forum entitled "Local User Groups" could be a place users could go to post their location and willingness to form such in-person groups.

Individual contacts could be made via PMs so contact information would not be made known worldwide.

In larger cities, the groups could even come together re: specific genres of music.

Most of us do or could have BIAB on a laptop so the users could bring their own puters with them and not only collaborate in writing new songs but also share a ton of HANDS ON in-person tips and tricks.

I would strongly urge PG to consider creating just such a forum.

This is something I've been interested in for quite some time - forums are amazing, but is no replacement for the spontaneity and enjoyment of human face-to-face interaction.

Regarding locations - I think a simple solution to the matter of keeping private information private would be to post the nearest Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts address, or some other public meeting place.

User Group forums Someplace where folks interested in starting such groups could post and maybe get a group going in there area. Also giving news flashs from the groups about when and where they will be meeting and how many are attending. I'm ready to get together with others in the Kansas City Area but don't know anyone who is using the program here besides myself.

Perhaps a Copyright Information sticky that listed general information, plus links to Official Government sites by country. Copyrights seem to be a constantly recurring question.

This is a great suggestion

[edit] an after thought is what country should be listed? Many users live outside of Canada, including myself.

Mario, I was thinking USA, Canada, UK for starters, then add according the language popularity. I realize in can get complicated with the plethora of European languages.

A disclaimer would be prudent to protect PG Music.

There's a lot of posts in the forums about music theory, composition, reharmonization, chords etc. It would be good to have a dedicated forum where these posts could be answered along with discussions and shared knowledge about all aspects of music theory.

There have been a lot of good topics mentioned for additional forums, ... but I have one burning question.

Aren’t ALL of these topics already being more than adequately covered by the Off Topic forum?

I think the only thing you would accomplish by splitting these topics off into separate forums would be to reduce the number of viewers on the Off Topic forum and create new forums that would soon die of neglect because there’s only so much that can be discussed on a daily basis for any of the topics.

The Off Topic forum stays active by the diversity of topics available and I’m pretty sure that none of the suggested topics are being neglected by their inclusion in the Off Topic forum.

To use an old cliché, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.

Just my 2 cents.

I agree with Bob.

Consider the many forums for Cakewalk software. There are arguably more total users on the SONAR forum than on here, and they have many choices of specific subforums in which to post, yet you regularly read posts that start "I know this should be in the X forum, but this is where everyone is, so I'm posting here ...".

Now, posters there are arguably more argumentative than here, but that's another topic.

Wanna make somethin outa it, Matthew?!

I, also, think we have enough forums but need better search options. I don't want to be required to search several different forums to try to determine WHERE something was posted. Search function should find it wherever.

I would like to see a forum where users could exchange knowledge about using (primarily midi) style creation tools such as the metachord editor. Secondarily, exchange user created styles.

I really like a mixed posting listing thats mentioned above.
You see more or less all posting titles, then go to the
one you want to read. Maybe used current style header
with the Mixed titles as a selection. Lousy name, but?

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:
