Think globally, rock locally

Idea: Virtual Song Critique Circle

One of the great things about a site like this is that you have so many ways to share information with other members. It really makes anything possible.

One example of this would be online song critiques. A member of the CCSA Online could write a song, record a demo version of the song and upload some lyrics (with appropriate Copyright). All you would need to do then is write a blog post about your song (like I'm doing now) and somehow embed an mp3 player so people could hear the song. Or you could upload the song to your page and just tell everyone which song is being critiqued. Then members could leave comments on your blog about the song. And you'd have full group collaboration.

Obviously, the only major concerns would be protecting your intellectual property online. But there are a number of ways to achieve this.

Anyways, I just wanted to throw that idea out there. I can't always get away on Tuesday nights for the song circle. But I would love to contribute when I can. This would allow me to do that.

I've done song reviews like this on a number of sites. I've been a member of, and I've even been a moderator on This would simply be a low tech version of the same thing.

I'm working on an example. But don't let me stop anyone else from trying this out.

I love it! Thanks for this post, Michael. And since we all really do know each other, we're less likely to get the trolls that just want to say awful things--I'll just kick 'em off if they're ugly :-)

Who wants to start?
