Just a quick post to say "thank you" - what an incredible heuristic you've built here. I had a tune in my head all morning - I knew it was Bach, piano, probably a prelude, that was about it. When I got home I ran to my library, scoured all my books and couldn't find it (turns out I simply missed it, not sure why!).

Then I discovered this site, used the keyboard entry and just guesstimated the melody (I had the wrong key entirely). I must have entered about 15 notes, not much more. The first result to come up was the exact Prelude from WTC I (#5). I was completely blown away.

Well done guys. If I ever have the chance to contribute, I will!

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
