How do I change my song concept?
As the song evolves you should change your song concept so that it represents the current state of your song idea. Only the project coordinator (the person who created the workspace) may change the song concept. If you are the project coordinator you can change the song project by clicking the "change" link that will appear directly underneath the large project concept button that appears on the song workspace page. You may also change it by editing an existing file uploaded to the workspace and changing it's file type to "Project Concept".
