Not being particularly dot orientated although I can read them  :o , if I wanted to convert to an abc file how does one determine which key it is in?

'The Equator' is in D major, 'Tulip Sunday' is in E minor.  For ABC purposes, you may have to set the latter as G major to get the correct key signature, depending on the software used.

The first one looks like it is in the key of G-major, judging by the #F; the second one is in D-major judging by the #C & #F in the key signature at the left-hand end of each staff.

Sorry Syale, I equally struggle with ABC format. "The Equator" is in D major, straightforwardly. "Tulip Sunday" is sort of in E minor, but modulates out of that somewhat in the middle. I'm afraid I've no idea how you set up ABC to do that.

My new Loffet has yielded a tune! A mazurka called The Red Room (so called because my room is red. :P)

Enjoy. :)

This tune started life as my composition assignment for this week, but soon morphed into something else (no longer fits the brief). As you can see, it's a crooked tune. :P Dedicated to Ukebert, as he likes that sort of thing, and I want to hear it on his Lilliput (hence the title).

This tune started life as my composition assignment for this week, but soon morphed into something else...

It's a neat tune. I listened several times while trying to follow the dots, but got lost in the middle after the first two passes through AA. As written it looks like it might be AABB before exit through the last bar; is this correct? Thanks.

Yup, that's correct. You get the A part twice, then the B part twice, which involves the first and second time bars.

Thanks Matt. The title is to do with something which happened on the day I wrote it. A colleague said that she was leaving her job to go to work in Ecuador. In response to the inevitable question "Oh, why Ecuador" all she would say is "Because it's on the Equator"

Apparently new tunes don't come easily to me, but here's one I wrote some years ago.  Still enjoy playing it:

More Shed, any minute now:

'Shed' was the name we used to have for a particular receipe for home-brewed beer that I made. I confess it was really just a Boots London Bitter kit in a tin with a lot of hop stuff added...

Another song that was wrote with a friend but i'm not able to sing it, so just the music (improvisation part not really... mmmh... i have to made another recording of this one :-\) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeoGrNcnEao
And a tune in tribute to my neighborhood's pubs (this one also need another recording... or maybe i just go to :|glug) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rz1oxk4HjFE

Good! I enjoyed your music, thank you. The first one was quite jolly.
