New site feature: tune sets
Here’s a feature of the site I’ve been working on for a while, and I’m very happy to finally unveil it: tune sets!
If you’re browsing through the tunes section you’ll notice a new button under every tune setting: “play this in a set”.
If you click that button, you can create a set with that tune setting (or add the tune setting to an existing set of tunes).
Here’s one I made earlier:
As you can see, you can view (and print) the sheet music for the whole set, and download the set in ABC file.
If you see a set that somebody else has made that you like, you can click the “copy this set” button to make a duplicate of the set.
Don’t worry if you put tunes in the wrong order in a set; you can edit the set at any time (click the “edit this set” button). Drag and drop the tune titles to rearrange them in the set and then click “save changes”. You can also drag tunes out of the set completely.
Once you start making sets of tunes, there’ll be a link to your sets from your member profile (along with all your other contributions). Here are my sets, for example:
I hope you’ll find this new feature useful. In the long term, I’m hoping that it could surface some really interesting and useful information, like which tunes are most commonly paired together—that’s the kind of information that could then find its way back onto the tune pages.
Give it a whirl and let me know what you think.
