About “Tags - Music”

My thought process on this page is that while we are annotating what exactly each tag is and stands for, we can also make suggestions for new tags, and attempt to cleanup existing tags that may be redundant.

The intent of the page is to create a definitive listing of the music related tags, definitions and examples annotated for each tag, and proposals for redundant or new tags.

If you would like to propose a new tag please precede it with “*” and annotate the “*” with why you think that this tag should be added.

If you would like to propose that an existing tag is redundant please add “%” after the tag and annotate “%” as to the reason you think it is redundant.

For annotations on the tags themselves please follow this template.
