Status of the proposal
Details of the proposal
Project descriptionA free Songbook: This idea is not my idea; many persons had this (Wikimusic II, Wikimusic, Wikisongs, WikiSongs), but all had problems with the copyright. Now we can write scores with the wiki-software, so there aren't so much problems with the copyright and it isn´t a sisterproject of Wikimedia Commons. Second this Wiki isn´t for Songtext it is for music, so it isn´t a sister project of Wikisource. There is something like this in the german Wikibooks: de:b:Liederbuch. The problems with this book is first it isn´t international - I think it should be - and second it isn´t really what Wikibooks is.
Is it a multilingual wiki?One Multilingual wiki

Maybe, but many of the best-known songs of today are of course copyrighted, putting severe restrictions on content that could be included. SelfieCity (talk) 23:12, 14 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • Question Question: In what this project would not be redundant with wikisource (or Wikibooks)? It cannot be about music that fell in the public domain, because such thing already exists, even if it is distributed along several Wikisources (e.g. :Che Buò Fa? - 'A Pacchianella (1892) on nap.source or Wikisource:Sheet music on en.source). Music sheets in the public domain are now uploaded to Commons, and the score is written on the relative Wikisource project (even if no text is present, this can be done). --Ruthven (msg) 10:21, 2 December 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • Strong support Strong support. News lyrics and music in the public domain. In some way, a music wikibook, where all song include music notes (so, edition is in the pentagram). And also Wikisource, for classic music notes, also with pentragram. Also, Mediawiki's free sofware (plug-in) to write pentagram notes. The song could be adapted for the different musical instruments, beginning for the most used: piano, gitar and so on. And in only one proyect / wiki. Good idea!!!.

    • Ich antworte nur auf Deutsch, und hoffe ihr könnt euch den Text übersetzen lassen. Alle Lieder die ich und meine Kollegen auf den deutschen Wikibooks für das Buch Gitarre und insbesondere der Ableger das Liederbuch gemacht haben, dürfen nach üblichen Regeln kopiert werden. Einige nützliche Vorlagen für Akkorde etc. wurden schon erstellt. Viele Vorlagen lassen sich schnell für englische Projekte anpassen. Allerdings werde ich mich schlicht aus Zeitmagnel nicht an diesem Projekt beteiligen können. https://de.wikibooks.org/wiki/Liederbuch/_Inhalt --Mjchael (talk) 17:15, 31 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
