Ooh, that's very clever Ned! When I made the rules, I didn't think about chords inside a single voice at all, and didn't specify whether you are allowed to have them or not. Furthermore I notice I DID specify the minimum duration of notes, but not a minimum time interval between them, so using chords is ok from that point of view as well.

Regarding the number of notes in voices, there's a simple workaround for the problem, see below :lol:

yes, that's right Marko.

In my mind's eye, the crotchets on the second and third beats are in the lower voice, but I see you have tweaked that by giving them upright stems. A neat bit of fiddling for a classical guitarist!

It turns out, I've always been very good at bending my own rules :P

Still learning the Muescore (doing separate voices especially).

Got it.

Marko,

What's the quickest way to make the score into an image in order to post it here. I did a screen capture and then had to put it into PowerPoint. There's got to be a better way! :oops:

There's a typo in Mark's sheet, that found its way into Goran's as well. The first upper voice note of the 3rd bar should be c, not e. The composition is coming fine!

Mark, I print the sheet to a file with Microsoft XPS document writer, then open the file with windows xps viewer, and use snipping tool to copy the selection of it and to make it a png. I'm not sure if it is any faster than using powerpoint though.

Dear All

I am going next and here is my piece.


Youtube


I am sorry but I have not learnt to use Musescore yet. The bar which I have added consists of a three note chord F+C+A (all dotted minims, three beats) followed by a D (crotchet) and a top F (crotchet)

Wonder if you can feel where I am going?....looking forward to seeing who and what comes next...

Ned

Here's the latest score:
D03 Game_bar7.PNG
The whole chord cannot be sustained for the whole duration of the bar, because that would be against the rules (1 note only for other voice), and there can be no overlap within a voice (when a new note starts sounding, any notes in the same voice that were sounding prior must stop). Therefore I left the low F sustaining for the whole beat, and the other two notes of the chord crotchets.

Goran, I noticed that you didn't post your video within the required time. From now on, I would appreciate if players posted their video as the first priority and worry about filling the sheet second. There probably isn't any clear definition about what counts as "participating in the game" (in the sense of completing the assignments of the lesson), but I think that the playing and posting the video part is probably more important than the sheet, which is only for book keeping really. As the composition is getting longer, for someone who hasn't been completing his Musescore project from the start, just getting to where we are now can get a bit exhausting. Ideally I would attach my copy of the Musescore project file into the top post of this thread, but the forum does not allow that file extension to be attached (nor zip), so it's probably better that the new players will just identify the notes they have used (especially if there are chords) just like Ned has done, rather than do the error-prone copying into Musescore by hand.

Goran, I think it now makes more sense for you to take a new turn when you think you'll have the time to play and post, and compose another bar, rather than only play up to your first bar and insert your video link to your existing post, but I don't really mind either way. Your bar is a permanent part of the composition nevertheless :)

OK :desole: .I really did not have time. I thought I would get to record video, but I failed. :oops:
Now, for the penalty , I will try to solve Ned's new riddle. :D

ok I hope this game is not closed yet. Here is my measure 10. Someone, please resolve it. :lol:

Youtube



The one bass voice is a D# holding out the full measure as dotted half note. The melody will be played with a quarter note C at the same time as the D# in the bass. The next two melody notes will be B and A as 8th notes on beat 2. The last melody note will be a quarter note G on beat 3 . Thank you, I had fun with this.
