Does anyone know if there is a way to create a new or custom tag for mp3 files. What I want to do is create a tag called "sub-genre" and I dont know the best way of going about it.

Just use one of the other fields you don't normally use like "comment" or "composer" etc.

Are you using iTunes? If yes, proceed to A. If no, see B.

A) If you go to "view" and click "view options", you can add and delete columns.

B) Sorry. No help here.

Yeah, doing that only allows you to add and remove previously established tags like "artist", "album" etc. What I want to do is create a whole new custom tag called "sub-genre". Thanks though.

Yeah, but if you pick one that you won't fill in any information for normally, you can use it as a subgenre column. It doesn't have to be named subgenre to sort your music effectively.

right, that's what fober was eluding to in the first response and I think that's what I am going to end up doing. Thanks for your help.

Mostly I just meant to point out that you can customize the ones that appear in the player. A surprising amount of people don't know that.

yeah people are un-surprisingly retarded too, not me of course, but other people. I think I am going to use the "Category" tag as the sub-genre tag.
