Currently one can filter tracks by words contained in the track name or track group and other common filter criteria.  But often this requires us to add words into the track name just in order to make visibility filtering by string work well. And a downside of this is unnecessarily long track names plus the need to adopt and maintain some kind of track naming policy.

Instead of this it would be much better if one could create and maintain a set of TAGS - and then add any number of these tags to any track. This would allow an independence of categorisation methodology from track naming.

Totally agree!

I had a similar request to add and/or arguments fo the filter so that I could filter tracks that had "Guitar" or "gtr" in them for example.

Its a great feature though, but just needs that little bit of refinement. Your tag idea is great.
