So I usually am not in the presence of staff paper, and I absolutely love graph paper for many things, so I created my own system of notation for when I have graph paper but no staff paper. It’s rudimentary and inefficient, but it makes practical sense. It’s not really meant to play off of, it’s more meant to keep track of rhythms and pitches for future use. Currently I’m using this system to transcribe and transport the sax solo from Youngblood Brass Band’s “Brooklyn” into Flat.io without changing tabs or removing instruments. I’m mildly proud of this system; I’ve used it in the past, up to a year ago, but I’ve refined it.

Hey y'all! So my front ensemble is in need of a new lot tune and they want me to arrange it. The problem is we don't know what song we want to use. Any suggestions? Feel free to comment your suggestions.
Just thought you guys should know that the legend himself TheMTCrew is holding an arrangement contest over at the Musecorps group: https://musescore.com/groups/musecorps/discuss/5048601
You guys should check it out it's a pretty cool idea!

Hi all, there used to be a flute piece titled "end credits", but it was taken down when the user's account got suspended. Does anyone else know what piece I'm referencing, and can anyone remake it? (I'm not too good in the composing area).
This is one of my first scores, so any and all feedback would be great (although preferably constructive criticism). Thank you!
Hi there! I have yet another piece I'm looking for feedback on (again, preferably constructive criticism, but hey). Please comment on the piece itself preferably, but idc if you post here either.

I’ve just been messing around for a total of less than three hours today, getting into overtones, and I can already do (albeit Barely controllable) altissimo squeaks like Leo P on pretty much any fingering.
*points at dumb luck*
