Title: SOTM - Song Of The Month

SOTM - Song Of The Month

What started as a "song of the moment" trial in 2015 has evolved into a steady feature with its own board, Song of the Month (https://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?board=42.0). The idea was to present a Country Blues related song with a view to promoting listening, learning and playing. And so it has continued and evolved.

Posting a Song of the Month initial topic will result in the discovery of other versions and background information thanks to input from other forum members. Often the other "found songs" are not related by, for example, song title. Finding them builds a more complete picture of where a song came from and where it's been.

Songs we discuss are most often part of a song 'cluster'. Song clusters provide a lot of material, roots and branches for discussion. At the time of writing, every SOTM topic has covered a song with direct- and/or indirect connections to other songs in the recorded canon.

But you can pick something totally unique, they are out there. The song is the thing; the fact that it's still around and yet somehow unrelated to anything else speaks to its rarity, immortality and importance. Someone on the forum will always chime in with links to interesting background material. If they don't it will be a short thread but no less important :P
