I'm unsure whether to put some extra classification info (i.e. e.g. like non-genre last.Fm tags) into a Custom field/tag or the occasion field/tag - or somewhere else.
Examples for non-genre/-mood tags are:
- fromPeter -- if Peter got a special/weird/similar/good music taste
- Trumpet -- as a trumpet fan I'd like to find all those tracks in Silje Nergaard's / Johann Sebastian Bach's / classical music featuring trumpets. Not a keyword for the artist tag, since I only add major soloists there (feat. trumpet: xy; musicbrainz syntax)
- Weird -- for crazy songs that usually get a low rating but are notable in a weird sort
- Hit/Pick -- for billboard hits, allmusicguide album or track picks, klassik.com editor's choice; they don't necessarily get a 5star rating from me.
The "occasion-field-solution" would be easiest, because MM provides the full functionality for adding new classes to the drop down menu and, more importantly, to the navigation tree, and the symbol-bar-classification-drop-down-list etc. But regarding the meaning of my classification, it would be a misuse, since these are no occasion tags.
Using one of the custom 1-5 fields would mean that I don't have this functionality. Although I might be able to reproduce at least the navigation tree issue using MagicNodes.
Any commentss on this? Anyone doing sth. like this? I think that, ideally, MM would provide an extra classification field with the usual functionality but without a special name like Mood, Occasion.
