despising Musecore 3

There are days when I absolutely hate Musescore 3. Sure, it is nice that things get automatically spaced in the score so nothing overlaps, so wow gee wiz, uh, isn't that just how it should be? What I hate is that they seem to have gone out of their way to make things more difficult compared with Musescore 2. They seem to have randomly changed things that didn't need changing just to make it frustrating for the use. It used to be easy to change the volume of a single note or chord in a score. But now, once I finally figure out how to do it, Musescore manages to hide it from me so then I have to start all over trying to find out how to do it again. Why!!!? It used to be easy to see the note in inspector and then modify the volume, but now, where the blazing biscuits is it?? And why is it impossible to find in the manual? Ultimately, there is no advantage to Musescore 3 other than the spacing thing. So, I should do everything in Musescore 2 and then when it is ready to be put online, open it with Musescore 3. Just be sure to give it a different name because once you open it in Musescore 3, they won't let you go back to Musescore 2. Oh, no. Why would they make it **&&**& easy?!!!!! And I paid good money for this kind of frustration????????!

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.

Percussion rewrite on my piece.

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!

Does anyone have a ballad suggestion?

SO

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

Repertoire:
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.
