I love the C64 and music. I also love Rob C. So iwanted to make some music but have it on a site that looks good.

My only problem is that the songs have to be downloaded before you can hear them.


I need to work out how to do streaming.

Carlos, Looking good. Sorry if the FTP has been a bit unrelible lately. I've been re-jigging things here.

Flash is one way of streaming, or you cud use the M3U trick. Where you just have the person download the playlist, and then there player streams the track from the server...

Best Wishes, and Happy Christmas, Laurence

It was tidy and neat, but i thought the design a bit dull considering the exciting subject you have on offer (music/musicians).

For example, instead of a monochrome musical score as the pic on the left, how about colour pics of musicians at work in evening dress, kilts or whatever. the pic could change from page to page thus adding some colour and interest.

Neeldess to say there wasn't much content & none of the band links works, but i assume that's a work in progress?

Basic design OK, but make it more interesting, you are trying to sell something after all.

BTW I'm certainly no expert either, just a bloke who dabbles, so take my advice accordingly.

Hi Glyn (et al). Bigday music site now revamped:
www.bigdaymusic.net/bigdaymusic

let me know what you think now!

What I think now?

It's really good! All the links I checked worked. the site design is more colourful and bright. Gives feeling of confidence - these poeople are trustworty, they won't screw up my wedding!

Would like to see some photos added of musicians in action at events you have organised. But if you are just starting out that will be difficult I suppose? Certainly when you've got a few under your belt add a photos section of succesful events you've done, pics of brides and pipers in full regalia, a caelie band in action, that type of thing.

Good luck.

Giant With Laser...

The design of the main site looks drab to my eyes. Music is EXCITING, but your site design doesn't convey that, it's very business-like, l8ike a site would be that sold office stationary for example! It looks like the Microsoft MSN site, maybe because of the colour scheme and the blue banner along the top?

Having said that, it is tidy and professional looking, if that's what you're after.

The new site doesn't have enough content to pass comment on, but again you seem to be opting for an unispiring design choice.

Sorry if that disapoints, I know how much work will have gone into this, so it hurts when its criticised, but i think you need to liven it up.

I get some weird layout stuff when loading this page in IE6.0 - I'd post a jpg up, but I can't remember the ftp details of my free space :headbang:

Other than that, just to re-iterate what Glen has said, it looks a bit 'corporate' (friendly, fluffy corporate, but still corporate) at the moment.

Yea, sombody mentioned that... But I can't get it to do it myself. It must be error in the CSS coding. I will look tonight...

hi famolly. my first impression was that it had a nice graphic: draw that yourself? second impression was that the site wasn't taking itself too seriously (which is fine)
3rd was a real annoyance: the lack of a BACK button (except via rightclick). That is a real pet hate of many browsers: back is the most-used function in a browser: don't make it difficult to get at!

hi gregster,

yup, i did the picture. what do you mean by "the site wasn't taking itself too seriously"?
last, i didnt think a back button was required as theres links at the bottom that take you back.

cheers for your response

Good graphics Ben... just good. And how many web pages do I see in a day? Far too many... so you must be OK. 8-)

GlenB,

I did have this idea, but I think its bordering on the edge of taking the piss!
http://msweb.dynalias.com/site2design/2logo.jpg
http://msweb.dynalias.com/site2design/3logo.jpg
But I agree the other site, lacks interest and focus...

Maybe add a cuckoo! hehe, no i'm joking really!

I love the FaMolly site, I wish I could do graphics like that. Its really nice... Not to keen on times new roman font, but apart from that its lush!
