Encoding of File Names

When you read through the tables, you may want to know how I made up the filenames.

I set up a simple code so I can recognise the song without needing to resort to a program displaying mp3 tags.  When creating playlists, I find this enormously helpful.  It does not take long to get used to it.

If you don’t like the encoding, once you have downloaded a song, you can give it any filename you like.


Here is an example: Can_SonarYnadaMas_VS^W

•  The first block of letters is an abbreviation of the main performer’s name.  I have a list of all abbreviations.  If there is demand, I can upload it.

•  After the underscore  __   follows a condensed version of the title.

•  If nothing follows, it means it’s a ‘normal’ Tango

•  If there follows another __   and a capital letter indicates V for ValsM for MilongaC or Cj for Canjengue and Cd for Candombe.

An S after the style indicator tells you it’s a song.

•  ^ which means, I have completed adding a bit of silence at the start and end and a general volume adjustment, the smallest degree of editing.

•  ^W means I have done more than half an hours work on a piece.  For info on that, look at My Style of Dusting.

•  Lately, I added a + or which marks the time of the first release of the song.  + means it was more than 50 years ago and means less.  I added this because of possible copyright issues.

Decoding the above example: Can_SonarYnadaMas_VS^W+

It’s a Canaro song called Sonar y nada mas, it’s a Vals, a song and I have done more than half an hours work on it and its first release by the performing artist was over 50 years ago.

Makes sense?
