Using a Tablet and Electronic Scores
Stephen Fine posted a topic in The FingerboardI purchased an iPad after years of resisting owning a tablet. I tried a Kindle ten or so years ago but was irritated when the thing broke after only a year or so. I watched my friends start using tablets with a bit of unease, but (after observing their heresy for a few years) I decided to throw off my Luddite shackles. There's so much amazing material on IMSLP. Composers and publishers are more and more often offering electronic scores. And a paper music library is heavy, easily damaged, and difficult to take on the road. Anyway... the iPad is a thing of beauty. Very sci-fi. I bought a case to protect it, but also K&M makes a music stand for tablets, so I got one of those too. I also purchased a bluetooth pencil from Apple and a foot pedal for turning pages by a company called Donner. I'm using ForScore to read and edit parts. It's fun cleaning up old scans, a bit labor intensive compared to a real pencil and paper, but the end result is very tidy and very legible.
Does Anyone Recognize This Cello Piece?
KevinLew posted a topic in The FingerboardDoes anyone out there in internetland recognize this music or is it just a cello improv? I’d like to find the sheet music if possible. Oh, and the fellow (Vincent) is super funny. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUaZSVcD7UI&lc=z223vnjzusbjep0rz04t1aokgnmubovgd2klfwjadlx4bk0h00410

Notation For Bow Strokes
monian posted a topic in The FingerboardHi everyone, How are various bow strokes like spiccato and ricochet indicated in sheet music? Are these strokes even indicated or does the performer just add them? I'm composing stuff for strings and would like some help. Thank you.
How do you like your 'sheet' music?
Rue posted a topic in The FingerboardWhat is your sheet music preferences? I'll try a poll too... I must be totally old school. I prefer sturdy off-white paper with dark black ink...spaced enough so the notes don't run together in one black blob... Hence, I prefer music printed by a printing house. If I'm actually going to work on something for any length of time I will buy a copy of the music. However, I do photocopy quartet music - mostly to ensure the original score stays intact...and that it is available should members leave and new members join - and not return the music. I do use free music (IMSLP is a great site) to look through material, but I find those photocopies especially frustrating since the scans are often not quite right to begin with...and visual quality is lost. I can't for the life of me read from a computer screen (such as an iPad)...
Good source for free Video Game / Rock Violin Sheet music?
Zyclone posted a topic in The FingerboardHi all, I want to get my kids excited about playing the violin, it's summer and practicing the classics seems like a chore and boring to them. I am looking for suggestions where I can find some video game (mario, halo, starwars etc.) or rock (led zepplin, pink floid, doors, ozzy, metallica, dio, foo fighters etc.) sheet music for free. All suggestions welcome!
Does anyone perhaps have this sheet music, for viola, in the alto clef? I can only find versions in Treble and Bass clef, and unfortunately even though I can read both on the corrosponding instruments like Piano and Violin, I cannot put the fingers to the notes when playing the notes written in those clefs while playing viola. It was hard enough having to learn the alto clef, but now having to read Treble and Bass and Alto when playing viola seems a BIT harsh. Thank you.

mrcopper posted a topic in The FingerboardNew recording of music for quartet of flute and strings, "Sailing!" https://soundcloud.com/williamcopper As in earlier posts, the individual parts are given specific intonation instructions, though in this simple piece it probably isn't even necessary.
