Some lyrics I made recently.. This is still a WIP (work in progress)

Hey, so this is the first time I've publicly shared my lyrics. I'm calling this one 'Fake Love' right now. It's from the perspective of a man who had been dumped by his girl but she still acts like she loves him. I wrote this after my Dad visited us because I was a little bothered by the way my parents acted. I'd love any feedback you guys might have! Thank You!!

Fake Love
You keep giving me that fake love. You keep telling me your lies.
You keep saying that you need me, but I see you with that other guy.
Your embrace, your touch, the cold inside your eyes. Makes me shiver, makes me shiver, now you've turned me into ice.

(chorus)
I don't want to be yours anymore. So please don't ask me if I'm fine.
Your words are only cold anymore. I don't need your lullaby.
You can go your own way. Take the road that leads astray, I don't care.
Because you're just fake love... Fake love

I find myself wondering, has it always been like this.
Now I see you questioning. Who led you to make this break.
In my eyes you see the pain of everything you put on me. With your fake love, your fake love.

(chorus)
I don't want to be yours anymore. So please don't ask me if I'm fine.
Your words are only cold anymore. I don't need your lullaby.
You can go your own way. Take the road that leads astray, I don't care.
Because you're just fake love... Fake love

You wear that smile and tell me I'm your every thing. But then you cast me in the rain....

So that's all I have so far. It's definitely not done. This is the first revision so it has hardly been edited. Hope you guys like it!!!

Embedded iframe with YouTube recording fails in some web browsers

This is a problem which has existed for quite a while, and it would be good to sort it out definitively.

Many of us use the "Share" option to embed an HTML "iframe" of the MuseScore player in our own website. It's really useful for making practice files for choral societies and church choirs.

With a MuseScore file that creates its own playback, it usually doesn't matter which web browser you use: it plays normally.  But if the score is sync'd to a performance recording on YouTube as the default sound source, then the playback doesn't work on all web browsers. 

Here is the result of a test of various browsers which I ran today:
-  Chrome 73.0.3683.75  = broken
-  Edge 42.17134.1.0 = broken
-  Firefox 65.0.2 = plays ok
-  Internet Explorer 11.648.17134.0 = plays ok
-  Opera 58.0.3135.107 = plays ok
-  Vivaldi 2.3.1440.60 = plays ok

You can run the test yourself on my HTML page, where the SATB player is linked to a YouTube performance by Birmingham Conservatoire Chamber Choir:

Counting game anyone?

Literally we are just gonna count and see how high we get. There’s no count breakers, so it’s just for the thrill lol. Feel free to write normal comments, but make sure you include the number we’re on. And don’t make separate replies. Instead, just tag a user. If there is an error and you messed up or whatever, try and edit the comment before you delete it.
Have fun!

Who is going to Elevate 2019!?

If you dont know what Elevate is, it is in Ohio and is a youth activity. You stay up till around 2:00 to 3:00 am :P and you get to do Ice skating and go to Get Air (amazing trampoline place in Ohio :P ) The service is like....4 hours :I *oof* but its fun and Jesus get away :) One thing my church dose is on Saturday, there is 6 hours to do what ever so me and my friends are going to the mall that is near by! This year, they are also doing something different. They are going to have a prayer bus and whoever wants to can do it but you get on the bus and go into town and minister to people :) So, who all is going?

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 :-)
