This is a PermaThread?, intended to serve as an index to Mudcat and a permanent index for our PermaThreads? and other memorable and notable threads. Feel free to post messages in this thread, but note that I reserve the right to edit or delete all messages here, so that this thread will serve as a permament reference.

Pene Azul came across this message from Marion in on of the "Help For Pickers" threads. I think it deserves wider exposure.
-Joe Offer-
Hello folks. I've very much appreciated the links to other tip threads that others have posted in part two, so I thought I'd gather in here some of the educational threads that have been particularly useful to me, or that I have traced in the expectation that they will be useful later.

They are roughly categorized; I couldn't decide if "Smartass titles" needed to be a category of its own.

Bon appetit, Marion


Lonesome EJ has volunteered to maintain the list below:

Mudcat Classic Threads

The following links will take you to prime examples of the musical knowledge, humor, and thoughtfulness to be found in the Forum of the Mudcat Cafe.
I had originally asked Rick for suggestions for a Classic Thread under the topic Technique and Instrument Discussions, which was why he started the Pickers Tips Thread. I had also planned a Traditional Music Discussions topic, but a lot of the ones I considered are already named in Alice's Memorable Threads. At any rate, I'll give you my picks at the risk of overlapping Rick and Alice. The individual threads may be changed from time to time, but the Topics should be ongoing.
The master list is in a thread called Mudcat Classic Threads
-Lonesome EJ (updated 13 September 2000)-


Alice's Memorable Mudcat Threads

Thanks also to Alice Flynn. For quite some time, Alice has maintained links to memorable Mudcat threads on our
Mudcat Links Page:

Click here to download Realplayer 8 Basic, which may be more trouble-free.


Please Note Important Message


Thanks to Pene Azul, this thread has been added to the top of the thread list. I'm sure that many of you have favorite threads that you'd like everybody to be able to find. Feel free to post links to them here. I'll incorporate the most notable of them into a master list at the top of this thread.
I intend to keep this thread trimmed to a fairly small number of messages, so that it will load more easily than the FAQ.

There truly are a LOT of joke threads. Please have a look.

Subject: PalTalk and HearMe

Date: 16 Oct 01 - 11:37 PM

Over the last few years, Mudcatters have used the HearMe and PalTalk services to gather for online concerts and song circles. Both these services are in a state of flux, so our procedures for singing sessions keep changing. Click here for a thread that should have the latest information on Mudcat online sings.

Suggestion for a future entry here. Listings of some of the threads on creating CDs or recording onto computers. We seem to have had a number of them (as far as I remember) over the past year. Here's one just came up recently, which Devilmaster answered with a series of messages. Looks good.

Tom N posted this list of folk music resources on the unfortunate "Weakest Link" thread, which I hope will disappear. The list is too good to let disappear, so I'll post it here until I find a more suitable place for it.

Here's an idea for somebody out there looking for a project.

It would be nice if we had an index to all song threads organized around a topic. Here are a few examples: Songs about getting really old?
'Women's' Work Songs
Narrowboat songs
Flower songs
Wanted: Songs for alcoholics!
Halloween Songs
But those are just a few of the easy ones?the ones with "songs" in the thread title. Where it would be a lot harder to compile, and where it would be most useful, is when the thread title doesn't give you a clue what it's about, or may even be misleading.

For example, today I ran across an old thread called How many fallen women does it take? From the title, I never would have guessed it was about music. I would have thought it was a joke thread.

(In fact, it really annoys me when people give threads cute jokey titles, especially serious threads about music. Such people show that they're only interested in attracting attention in the short term, but not interested in helping people who might search for information in the future. But I digress.)

That thread needs some kind of cross-reference, for example, "Songs about Fallen Women,"

Hi - I haven't been on this forum for quite a while, Retired and now geting ready to move to CA. Have recently been singing at a new concept showcase type thing run by a friend James Wagner from Frederick, MD. He has three venues, Jennifer's bar, the Mudd Puddle Coffee House and the Friends Meeting house where he is running a showcase at each place once a week. The showcase is called WHAP which stands for Weekly Happening with Audience Participation. Jim puts cards out on each table with "performer #1" etc on cards and the audience is encouraged to critique songs and performance. Very interesiting and fun.

Anyway, I'm going to tell Jim to Contact you'all with the particulars. A good showcase for people from DC, MD, and Northern VA. Songwriters, folkies, poets and comedians are welcome.

Foe Meader

Hmmm. A very important thread is NOT here. (IS this likely to be put back at the top of the threads list again? Or have I done something strange and that's why it doesn't show there any longer?

Great Tune Hunt

I'm in the process of cleaning up PermaThreads. If you know of PermaThreads that should be closed or ones that need an editor, please let me know by posting here. I could use more people to volunteer to maintain the PermaThreads that have been neglected.
Thanks.

To 'Local Color,' the person seeking music for the poem "Birthright": I moved your request to its own thread, http://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=153871&messages=1.
