Very nice, Tom. :bravo:
Melody line does sound great along with trll again at the end. :okok:
It seems a little empty without bass on measure 11. :chaud:
Possibly open E(6) or C(5) for bass? :discussion:

I agree, I played around with two such notes (bases paired up with the two D notes in that measure). I got impatient and quit. I may go back and play with idea some more.

Tom - well done. I think we made it a difficult piece, which is good for learning. I will record my take later in the week. Still trying to get my grip on Novelette.

I agree with Ed, it is a little difficult but good learning piece with charming melody. :discussion:

I also agree with you all. I think this turned out great. And that we should place a higher priority on the lessons, which for me, is the dreaded improvisation exercises..... :?

My advice to anyone participating in these Games: Don't turn it into a science project.

I think the principle difficulty (learning objective) we encounter in these games should be composition (very basic, figuring out note additions that sound right), with a secondary goal of simplicity. I've discarded many "nice sounding note combinations" I've generated in MuseScore, because they require a six-finger guitar player or were just too dang hard to play (after 4-5 tries). Using the guitar to develop these game inputs may still be the best approach after all (although MuseScore is a lot more fun :D )

I prefer to defer the difficult aspects to the lessons we're (also) working on.

Olga, I would recommend you start a new game. This one is finished. And perhaps Edna could join in. We can jump in as well.
