Research and primary sources subforum

Post by GeoffB » Mon Apr 16, 2018 10:39 am

This subforum has been created in response to a user suggestion, as a place for the posting and discussion of research into reliable primary sources of music for classical guitar and related instruments. It may also be used for posting and compiling biographies of the composers concerned.

Wouldn't this be better on wikipedia? It has it's discussion mechanism and, unlike a pure discussion forum, has a method to summarise conclusions - the page.

Thanks Geoff, can you link to the user suggestion in question so that we get the context of this?

Fair point, but I don't know how many members would take part in discussions there, and we welcome any interesting material this new section may encourage.

The suggestion was made in private to Mr. Delcamp by a member who is a retired musicologist, so things should become clearer in due course. I'll be moving other relevant threads here as I come across them.

Is there a list somewhere of "reliable primary sources" of music related to classical guitar? Possibly an annotated list so that one can focus their research?

I think creating more and more subforums makes the forum looked cluttered. I submit that the forum should be just one single, undivided forum. Everything gets posted to the same place.

I'm going to guess this won't be a popular idea.
