Encoding of File Names

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

The code tells me details of a song without the need for a program displaying mp3 tags, which is particularly helpful when creating playlists.  It does not take long to get used to it.

Once you have downloaded a song, you can give it any filename you like.


Here is an example: Can_SonarYnadaMas_VSw43x

•  The first block of letters is an abbreviation of the main performer’s name.

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

•  Then follows another  __   and a block of capital letters indicating the style of Tango: V for Vals M for Milonga C or Cj for Canjengue and Cd for Candombe.  None of those means it’s a ‘normal’ Tango.

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

•  The following W or a w means I have done more than an hours work on a piece.  For info on what that is, look at My Style of Dusting.

•  ^ instead of the W is for my own record keeping, which means that I have done nothing major.  This symbol will gradually disappear.

•  I started adding a + or which means the first release of the song with a particular performer was more or less than 50 years ago.  Gradually, I will replace the symbols with a two-digit number indicating the release date.

•  a lower case x is for my own record keeping.  It tells me that a title is ready for you to download.

Decoding the above example: Can_SonarYnadaMas_VSw43x

It’s a Canaro song called Soñar y nada mas, it’s a Vals, a song and I have done more than an hours work on it.  The first release by the performing artist was in 1943.  The lower case x tells me that all is ready to go.

Makes sense?
