YouTube Audio Source Disallows Seeking

When a score uses YouTube audio source, I cannot jump to any positions or the music stops and is never able to resume.  If that happens, I can only refresh the page to reload everything, which is annoying.  A workaround is to pause before seeking, then unpause.  That seems to work, but nevertheless cumbersome.  Can this be fixed?  I am not sure if it's more of a YouTube issue or MuseScore issue.  It didn't happen before until a couple months ago, and no one seems to have cared?

more specific classifications or tags

Hi, the success of musecore brings more and more music sheets into the libary.
What  about  more specific classifications or tags within the instrument  groups like "classic adaption" , "Duett",  "Trio" ,  "new /own composition" , "folk adaption"...
For me right now, I give up , because it is too hard to skip through over 4000 guitar pieces to find current compositions.

Should I do a contrapuntal analysis of Beethoven's Grosse Fuge?

This has been popping in the back of my head for a while, doing a contrapuntal analysis of Beethoven's Grosse Fuge, perhaps one of his best fugues outside of his symphonies. There are only 2 things that have stopped me from that. Here they are:

1) Notation of grace notes after notes gets weird in Musescore. In the case of a quarter note trill followed by 2 sixteenth grace notes, as happens in the very first phrase of the piece, the sixteenths literally overlap the quarter note, making it hard to see the quarter note.

2) Tempo, I know there are at least 3 different tempos across the entirety of the fugue. First I googled "Tempo of Grosse Fuge" and I got this average tempo value:

Yeah, literally nothing. I got some research of Beethoven's Grosse Fuge but that's it, no tempo to go off of, unlike say in my Eine Kleine Nachtmusik orchestration where, I could very easily get a tempo value and then adjust as necessary. When Google doesn't help, I look at what has been uploaded to Musescore to see if a tempo marking like quarter note = 120 shows up. This usually works, even if I have to scroll quite a ways to find it. Still nothing on the tempo of Beethoven's Grosse Fuge.

Here a few performances of it that I have listened to:

Slower than average tempo performance:

Average tempo performance:

If the grace note notation gets weird, as I predict it will in the Musescore software, I can just use regular notation and write the grace notes as if they were full blown notes and then make the noteheads of the grace notes small to give the grace note appearance. That should work, right? But the tempo changes, without having any clue as to what the tempo is, how am I going to go about getting the right tempo? Do I have to do the metronome test? Or is there another way? Also, would you want to see a contrapuntal analysis of Beethoven's Grosse Fuge?

Help on a Song

I don’t have the time to compose a music March called My Army-By the Red Army Choir. A few friends and I jokingly said that we would want to play this song for our Solo and Ensemble event and overall in general when we are asked to play, (we live in a very diverse community and the seniors who live are mostly Russian decent, and used to live in the USSR when they were children, and still admire Soviet Music), and we all have agreed on doing it. But we don’t have the time to arrange it for our instruments. We are a quintet (2 Trumpets, 1 French Horn, 1 Tuba, and 1 Euphonium.) I was wondering if y’all can help us? Thank You?
