Some time ago there was talk about opening a new feature in Metafilter Music. Back then it was described along the lines of a question and answer area for people to talk about recording music.
Some days ago there was this FPP
about a songwriting blog in the NYT that I think could serve as a model, and today there was this AskMe question
, whose poster could have found great answers with a feature like this. Music Mefites have stated many times that they would like to have the ability to ask other musicians from the site how they approach the writing/recording process, and I really think this would add a whole other level to a site that is already really, really cool.
And, in case someone wonders why don't I get my own blog about this: we've seen in the past that offshoot projects about Metafilter Music that are taken outside the site end up dying after a short while. This is the place where we gather, and I think having it here would guarantee its survival, and over time the accumulation of posts will turn it into a valuable resource.
I don't know if a blog like that in the FPP link would be too hard to implement, but it would be a marvelous addition to the site, what do you say?
