I got a lot of great response and questions about my post with the UIStoryBoard. This means people are interested in using it, and I'm not good with explaining things.
I did combo this drill down with a sorta complex core data model and assumed this was setup before handing off objects to each subsequent class. I'm going to nix the core data in favor of a simple input, but we are going to keep music on the table!
Lets start here : GitHub-UIStoryboardExamples
This Xcode project will start you out with some plist data that is a nested list of music genre, artist, album, song. At the same time not to complicate the ViewControllers on how it handles these different tiers the data is only nested as a "NSString name" , "NSArray items" pair. This way we concentrate straight on the loopback of the table segue.
This auto drilling can be a little limited because of the way we always drill into the same view controller class type. But! if you want to explore here, I suggest you make another cell prototype with a different identifier and a different segue outlet, and use it at your desired tier.
Good luck and happy storyboarding.
