Ladies and Gentlemen,
as you might have noticed on our CDLC submission form, we added a few more data points for the instruments used. You can now choose from these new options when submitting a CDLC:
- [font="'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;font-size:11px;"] [/font]Capo on Lead Guitar
- Capo on Rhythm Guitar
- Slide on Lead Guitar
- Slide on Rhythm Guitar
- 5 String Bass Guitar
- 6 String Bass Guitar
- 7 String Guitar
- 12 String Guitar
- Heavy Gauge Strings Needed
- Tremolo Suggested[font="'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;font-size:11px;"] [/font]
These options are now displayed in search as well. If a song uses any of the options mentioned above you will see an extra icon (/) in the Parts column that you can click on to expand the row and see the additional info. If an icon is below the L icon, that option regards only the Lead arrangement. The icons below the ... icon regard the whole song.
Please note that the extra info can not be sorted. The sorting of the Parts column works the way it did before and does not take into account the newly added Instrument Info.
Some of you have already uploaded songs that require some of the new options before we had added the new feature and noted that in the song title (e.g. "Be Yourself (Capo Required)"). Please edit your songs and use the appropriate Instrument Info.
Since we have a lot of icons now, I added a tooltip to each of them. Just hover over an icon for a second and it will pop up and tell you what the icon is for. I'll also add a legend to the Notes section.
Also, this will be the last new feature we cram into Search 2 which is far from the lightweight search it was originally meant to be. Feature requests are always welcome but we're going to try and add those into Search 3 where we have a bit more flexibility.
As always, please post any issues to our tracker.
I hope you enjoy the new features!
