Other comments on notation

Post by jrethorst » 27 Apr 2018, 03:15

This web site is impressive for the care and high quality with which its contributors notate music.

Sometimes when we strive this hard, a little comic relief is in order.

Here's another notation site, with plenty of illustrations, that may offer this:

I can't open the link, I don't have Facebook anymore. What is that group about?
I know there is a Facebook group called Music Engraving Tips, but mostly people "fight" there (never ending arguing), and you get some advices rather not to comment.

I have a inactive Facebook account and was tempted to activate it to view the site, needing a lot of comic relief right now.

If comic relief is what you’re after, that’s probably a good group for it. It’s not Music Engraving Tips, but Music Engraving S***posting. So, go and participate at your own risk XD

Yes, I remember it now I saw it. I would emphasize the word "risk". A lot of absurd and chatter/gossip posting, time consuming. The users post others engraving attempts and make fool of it; some users make with purpose a "bad" score, just for fun.

In my opinion, life is to short for that.
