Subject: re: free scores!!
I guess I really should create a field for adding somewhat more noticeable links to free sheet music.

I have added some links to Mutopia to some entries like e. g.[tid]=75a040d627d9d1f7386969e8973279f8
(in the source/attribution field). But those are really easy to miss.

Once people start adding such links to Musipedia entries (links to Mutopia, CPDL, PDMusic and the like), and I show those links prominently with search results, things should be at least slightly better.

you can thank the current state of copyright law for the dearth of public domain music. there aren't a lot of composers who'll give things away. I do, but I'm not a very good composer. even for compositions that are PD, it's hard to find typesetters who will just give scores away. Typesetting is challenging and painstaking. You can ask Rainer about that. :-) If I were a string player, his Hayden typesetting would be a "must have".

However, your best bets for free scores are and For MIDI files, there is the additional Musipedia is targetted more at melody identification and cataloging. Please feel free to help out with any of these great projects.

i think it could be an interesting idea to have free music scores for download, cause it`s very difficult to find in the net free complete scores, [/L]

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.
