So How Are The Welsh Songs Doing ?

The Welsh section on the site was not my idea but Marc's. He discovered that nobody was providing the chords to the traditional welsh songs I usually don't start a new section until I have sufficient content for a page. This is usually about 10 songs. It wasn't long before Marc sent the first batch to get me started, that section now has 37 songs added to date. It was a slow burner at first but has now taken off and doing quiet well considering all the songs are in a minority language with less native Welsh people speaking their native tongue than for example the Irish Gaelic. In general the songs in this section get about 100 hits per day, but that figure is climbing week by week.Having these Welsh songs on the site is a way of promoting the language through song and story. So for example if someone comes looking for the chords to Colon Lan which is one of the more popular one's they will hopefully drift into the Welsh section and discover a whole raft of songs they may find interesting and learn a new one.
