Subject: re: Finding melody in database
There is a text search capability, including by name or composer. For instance, in the Contour Search, you can use the field labeled: Keywords and/or "search phrases"

And indeed, there is no entry with the word "ripple".
(It's a lot harder to build a meaningful collection with popular music than with classical music because of copyright issues).

Subject: Finding melody in database
I was surprised to find that the search fails to find "Ripple" by the Grateful Dead by contour or by piano input. Before adding it I would like to be able to search for it in the database to make absolutely sure it's not already there. But there does not seem to be a database search capability by name or composer. Shouldn't it be added as a feature?

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.
