now it is.
I changed the search algorithm so that it performs better when the query does not quite match the data. In this case, your query does not have the punctuated rhythm that we find in the matching data, which is not a big difference for a human listener, but it was for the old algorithm. The new algorithm is a bit more human, so to speak.

Oddly, "Mary had a Little Lamb" is not the first hit for that search.

Sorry about that! I needed to adjust the PHP to a new version of Lilypond which sometimes produces something it calls "error", but which can be safely ignored. So I ignore those messages now. Would you be willing to try again?

I am trying it, too:

 search Musipedia for this

(also, there was something wrong with the overall size of the bitmap. It should now work. And the button is gone ... need to look for that in some backup)

I have had some difficulty getting the Lilypond entry to work correctly.

I get the following message:

[invalid Lilypond code:] Cannot find file for FontConfig cache.

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.
