I'd really love a comm designed to share music primers. When joining a new fandom people often search out primers-- often long, picspam style posts which offer a summary of the fandom so far (a brief overview of characters and other places to find the fandom on tumblr, dreamwidth etc). I'd like one for music.

I love new music, and I love discovering new genres. But sometimes when I want to get into something (like jazz or country or metal) and I don't know anybody who can point me in the right direction, I end up sticking to the stuff that appears on the top results page of google. I miss the bands that people who grew up with the genre might know about.

So I'd like a comm for just that-- primers for either entire genres or specific subsets of that genre or even just one artist (and related acts). Examples of songs could be linked to from youtube or another source similar.

Mostly I'm interested in setting up the comm myself and want to know if any body would be interested.

I know I've liked selected, say, electronica or dub-step or jazz songs but never been able to figure out which sub-genre actually appeals to me, so your idea does intrigue me.

I really like this idea! Though no lie, musical genres confuse me, so I might be more of a lurker than a participant (unless there was, say, a rec request post, so someone could say "could someone do a primer about x?"). I recently did a music rec comment party in my journal (I note no one was able to help out my friend who wants to know more about zydeco ;__; ), so am totally in favor of music recs on a larger scale.
