Tags for Musical Instruments
In Music and Live Performance you cannot add a tag with your specific musical instrument, nor can you search the Music and Live Performance area for a specific instrument that you’re interested in seeing performed. I’d love to see Twitch add tags for instruments like drum set, guitar, piano, violin, etc. This will help viewers narrow their searches as well as allow streamers to more easily find others playing the same instrument.
I really like this idea! I play acoustic guitar and sing. I would love to see a differentiation between acoustic guitar and electric guitar because the instruments and the music played are very different
Right now you have to scroll through endless DJs and electronic music to find someone playing a specific instrument. Just looking to make it easier to find exactly what you want to to see and hide the things you have 0 interest in.
Let's see if we can get some movement going on this. I agree this needs to be a thing!
I completely agree! As a pianist, the piano is the most prominent part of my stream. Please allow tags for instruments.
I'm a pianist and I'm always looking for other pianists to watch, but I can only search for musicians, which means I have to sort through lots of irrelevant streams to find what I'm looking for.
There's quite a few people who just practice on Twitch or are looking to see how people practice their instruments. These categories will help people find what their looking for sooner.
Add tags for individual instruments used in streaming (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, piano, bassoon etc.), or at least categories of instruments (woodwind, brass, percussion, strings, etc.). Would allow searching for specific sounds or for people to learn about specific instruments or styles.
Given the increasing number of musician streamers on Twitch, it seems strange to me there is no category for performance musicians (guitarists, drummers, pianists). As a drum streamer myself, I'd love a dedicated performance musicians category.
