Banana contest 1

Write a song about a lonely tarantula that lives in a banana bunch.
The grand price is a vierual bunch of ripe bananas. Now, for a limited time, as a added amazing bonus, a free virtual tarantula. No, I'm lying. Must be the toxin from the tarantula bite that's affecting me. Dizzy dizzy it's all going dark.

Why have a score for Bodhrán?

There is debate in the Bodhrán community, as to whether the playing should be written down or not. No Bodhrán player I know plays a tune the same way twice, and it is very much playing with the feel of the music.

Having said that, when I first started Bodhrán drumming I found it useful to have a guide as to what to do, so adding Bodhrán to MuseScore may help beginners. Also it would be useful to have the drumming added to a Tin Whistle score, for example, which gives a feel for what the two instruments will sound together.

However if you are dead set against Bodhrán notation, then I understand :-)

Sleepytime for Phoebe

Scoring feedback/advice requested.
My first attempt at notating for guitar, therefore any constructive advice and feedback on this score from those who know a thing or two about the notation conventions for classical guitar would be great.   (My formal musical education comes from a wind-playing background, whereas all my guitar is self-taught).  Thanks daveneal already for demonstrating the guitar sim on this chart.   https://musescore.com/user/28956788/scores/5664629
