Hi,

Does anyone have a library set up for classical organ music? I guess no two users would want their libraries set up in quite the same way, but I'd be interested to know what approach to browsing was used and which plugins.

My own thinking was to include geographic location in the browse structure, and begin along the lines of these examples:

Classical:
-> Organ solo
--> Albums by Location
---> Country: <England>
----> Location: <Symphony Hall, Birmingham>
-----> <album> (there could be >1 albums for a location)
------> <track>
--> Locations by Work
---> Composer: <Joseph Jongen>
----> Work: <Sonata Eroica>
-----> <location>
------> <album> (there could be >1 albums with the same work for a location)
-------> <track>
-> Organ + accompanist
-> Organ + orchestra
-> Other Classical
Non-Classical:
-> (as existing)

There don't appear to be Country or Location tags available. Is it possible, with Custom Scan, to invent my own tag names, or would I need to recycle some existing tags? (SB is my only tag-aware device.)

P.S. As I'm at the "beginner" level, I'm also wondering if this can be done.

Yes you can create your own and then you can use custom browse to browse by your own tags.

ps There is work being done for the next version of squeezecenter to support custom tags without the need for plugins.
