Why is this theme in Recordings and Videos rather than Tunes? I have written a tune that I am quite pleased with but I may never get around to recording it in any format because I have 'performance issues' for want of a better description. I wanted to share the tune and ask advice from the hive mind, alas that would be 'off topic' as I have neither a recording or a video. *wanders off*

What format do you have? Put up some sheet music and ask away.

Hi all,

I'm really getting into composing and have got a fair few tunes which I'd be happy to share. I'm still a bit of a novice at Melnet, and don't want to tread on anyone's toes. Is there an audience for new tunes? They're all pdfs from musescore. I don't really use ABC.

Ta muchly,

Andy

Welcome back Andy!  (:)
There are quite a few people on here who don't use ABC; it's not obligatory. Musescore is a great piece of software and very handy for composers as you can instantly hear and see the effects of editing notes, chords and rhythms in real time. Please do share your compositions! PDFs or Musescore files are most welcome. Musescore files (mscx format) are permitted as attachments and have the advantage of having very small file sizes. Anyone can download and use Musescore for free.

Thanks Steve!

I'll start with one of my favourites... I got a Scandi tune book from a good friend in Denmark as a Christmas present. There was a description of a type of tune called a Finnskog Pols which is written in 8/8 but with 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2 beat emphasis (I believe this is known as 147?). It's a great time signature which gives the tune an unusual emphasis and a sense of urgency.


I was going to call the tune Gargoyle Boy, but the pedant in me realised the difference between a gargoyle and a grotesque, a gargoyle being the architectural feature which diverts water from the roof of a building away from the walls. A Grotesque is the carved (usually mythical) figure with no architectural use other than ornament (hey, that's appropriate!).


I recorded a version of it and posted it to my YouTube channel (my first actual video!) which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZY4SXSHdrQc

Let me know what you think and maybe give it a go - would love to see what other players think of it!

Thanks,

Andy



*quick note* I tried to upload the musescore file but it's not in the right format. I'll see if I can rectify that and post it.

*Update*

I found the right type of musescore file to upload.

Cheers,

Andy
