I'm trying to write 20:3 in 4/4 but I'm not sure how to do that. Anyone know hot?
I'm loving MDL so far; it's everything I've wanted out of Musescore percussion, and more. However, there were a few minor things that I've noticed missing that might make for nice additions.
First off, bass drum shots would be nice. Most lines use rim shots (in addition to clicks) on at least first and second bass, so notation for shots vs. rim clicks on basses might come in handy.
Secondly, a hand mute for Drums 3 and 4 on the tenors would make a nice addition, since skanks (shot on 3rd or 4th followed immediately by mute) are fairly common.
And finally, let me say that I know that Muse is a notation software and not a playback software, so this one might be asking too much: it might be nice to have zone changes (specifically on snare) in playback in the future, just to enhance the difference between guts/halfway/center/etc.
Thanks for reading!
Congrats on earning your Eagle Scout! It is a high honor! Introduce yourself here. Things like: what was your Eagle Project? What were some of your favorite merit badges? Did you receive your Order of the Arrow award? Have a great time.
Here's the link:
I'm starting to make videos like this one where I teach you how to play one of my original tenor licks, and MuseScore Drumline has helped me so much in making these kinds of videos! Honestly, I don't know of another program that does what it can do, and I probably wouldn't be able to do this without it.
I hope you guys enjoy the video, I had a lot of fun making it! All the sheet music is on profile on here, and the second video is on the way.
And it's Monday again!
Time for another #MuseScoreMonday release!
Check out this drum feature 'Drum Quake 2.0' and let us know what you think
Not sure how many of you know about the MuseScore feature where you can synchronize a YouTube video with a score, but thought it could be pretty cool to sync up some videos.
Here is an example of a synchronized score: https://musescore.com/robin_m_butler/drum-corp
This could take the concept of Vic Firth's "Learn the Music" to the next level. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCq9eCicq8HmD80vSyIbp8w
on bar 127 on this score
look at the third percussion track. i really want to get those percussion sounds, and i don't know what soundfont it is, or what a soundfont even is, if it even is a soundfont, or how to download soundfonts
I was wondering if there are any experienced percussionist who could rewrite drumline and frontline in my dci composition. You can find the piece on my profile to see if it is somerhing that you would like to work on. Feel free to add or take away as many percussion parts as youd like. Please use the MDL snare, tenor, and bass. Message me and ill send you the file and we can work together!
Check out our new score at https://musescore.com/rudimentaldrummers/scores/5472053
Let us know what you think of it!
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 :-)
I get stuck mostly when writing front ensemble and it usually happens with keyboard instruments whether that's finding a rhythm or a groove or trying to blend with battery or building for an impact. Any tips?
I have had this project in the works, and have all the pieces lined up, except for a ballad, because I cannot find a ballad piece that fits the theme of this project. I will provide a link and the piece selection below for you to look up/listen to.
Theme Idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpU_yjsGkHs
ThE sMiLeR - Kübler, Wunsch, Krause, de Moura, and Heidicke
In the Hall of the Mountain King - Edvard Greig
Bird & Bela in Bb (1st Movement) - Don Sebesky
Asphalt Cocktail - John Mackey
**INSERT BALLAD HERE**
ThE sMiLeR Reprise
Dense - Univers Zero
And no, am not trying to make a Bluecoats show, even though it looks like it. These are just the best pieces that fit with this theme.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I just installed MDL 1.2.1, but what are the changes in this version from the previous version?
I need drumline/frontline writers for a DCI style show that i'm putting together. Message me if interested. Thanks!
Not too serious about this, but I'd like to make a 3 part show that's medium difficulty and fun to play, and I need help. I'm a percussion writer, and I'd like to bring a few other people on board with this. DM me on insta if you're interested @mvlchandani
(If I do get 3 or 4 people on board and are serious about this and we actually write a good show, I have connections and I could get Box-Six to buy the show from us)
Last Monday we did another #MusescoreMonday release.
This time a drum feature used in a Marchingband show, that we also did the choreography for.
Check it out:
We'd love to hear what you think of it.
I have created a Bodhrán instrument in MuseScore, and attached a score with a Bodhrán part added to a Tin Whistle tune.
So downloaded musescore 3 and had to reinstall MDL again and I noticed some of the palettes are missing from the MDL section compared to the musescore 2.3.2 one. I haven't noticed if anything else is missing but just thought I'd let anyone know.
And it's Monday again!
Time for a new #MusescoreMonday release.
This time our team member Daan Cornelissen wrote a traditional march 'Rhine River', inspired by Swiss and Basel drumming.
Check it, learn it, share it!
In my case I would like to have the Woodblocks in the Drum Part of my masterpiece. The reason is, that they should come rarely in some Fill ins and could be played by the Drummer himself.
Or in another case it would be nice, if I could have a Percussion part with Tambourine, Cow Bell, Bongos and Woodblocks.
Is this possible? And does someone know, how it could be possible?
