I realize Barry Harris is a pianist, but check out the first several bars and you will see a sax transcription over the chords to Giant Steps
I've recently been communicating with @Jaybird1 about the plans for this group. It's been great that so many people have stepped up and offered to help! So here's the game plan:
We have several roles available, because one person can't do it all.
A. a day-to-day moderator
B. a challenge creator
C. a judge
We want multiple people filling these roles: two to three moderators, one or two challenge creators, and six or seven judges. Please comment below if you want more info for a position. Note that even though we want many judges, applicants for a judge spot will be held to a high standard regarding qualifications. I will give more details to interested parties, and please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Jay is leaving for a choir tour shortly, so I'd like to have things well on hand with his return, maybe even be in a position to run a July challenge! Thanks!
CCC#2 is here!
Based on the results of the survey I sent out on Friday 7th June, it occurred to me that several of the themes which I suggested, and asked you to vote on, would in fact fit quite nicely together. Therefore, for this second competition, I have found another painting by Caspar David Friedrich, since the response for “The Watzmann” was very good. I am also going to give a genre of music (as wide as possible, but still something to go on) and a short story available in the file below.
If you would like to help judge the competition, or have any other queries, please message on Musescore, or via discord @jte#9811
Details of the competition:
- The deadline will be in 4 weeks time (Saturday 29th June)
- The genre, as chosen by the survey will be “Film Music”. This is deliberately a very wide genre in order to give the contestants freedom of creativity. There will be an award for the most original take on the task, as with the first competition.
Obviously this theme can be interpreted to fit your desires.
- The painting (shown below) and the story are both in the google docs file. If you have any issues accessing this file, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help.
- Your work must be completely original/all your own work.
- Be nice when critiquing other people’s work. Constructive criticism is fine, but don’t be rude. If you do, you will be disqualified from the competition and banned from the group.
- All pieces and comments must be appropriate.
Please let me know if you’re planning on taking part. I’d like to have an idea of who might be competing.
I'm transcribing a piece for jazz trio, but I have run across a slight problem. The piece is in swing time, with a 67% eighth note ratio. If I add an acciaccatura (or any other grace note that comes before the beat, as far as I can tell) onto an off-beat note, the grace note is played far too early. It's almost as if it's playing a grace note for the straight eighth, rather than the swing eighth. The grace note works fine if it's on the on-beat. Can anyone give me some advice for how to fix this?
Did any of y'all create horrible pieces of music the first time you joined Musescore?
Here is the alphabetical list of jazz standards lead sheets that are already done and available in our group. Titles that have been contributed by two or more different group members have additional links to the alternate versions of the leadsheets (noted with "alt chart").

I created this original, and I am looking for any jazz enthusiasts to try to give me tips. Its just a short idea, but your ideas are appreciated! I would also like to know if you want to hear more of that style.
I'm new to this whole groups thing so I don't really get whats going on but like I would really appreciate feedback of any sort on my composition:
Please change the audio source to the second one because otherwise it sounds a bit crap.
Hi! It would be absolutely enthralling if you would check out these scores. Unfortunately, my scores did not upload perfectly onto here, though they did upload perfectly on piano shelf. If you want to print the music out, then please visit those links, which I will provide.
Mine is my rondo for a sonata collab
What Do Admins Do?
If you don't know already, I am now almost at 50 followers. Currently I have 39 followers so just 11 more and I will have reached the 50 follower mark. I had maybe like 4 followers 2 years ago. So clearly, I'm doing something right. My most recent score called The Storm just brought me 2 more followers. I suppose they followed me hoping to someday see the entire suite that I plan on The Storm being a part of. That suite I call Weather Music. Maybe I should compose another part of the suite for that 50 followers mark, upload it when I reach 50 followers, and then whenever I have finished the suite, upload it in its entirety.
If you want to listen to what I have so far of The Storm, here it is:
It just so happens that I have been getting rain for 3 days straight here in Ohio.
Update 1: 6/18/2019
Oh my goodness, 4 followers in a single day. That is a record for me, I am now at 43 followers. I don't know if the follower milestone or finishing the composition will come first. If the follower count does come first, that's fine. I'm not pushing myself to finish the 50 follower composition.
Update 2: 6/19/2019
Wow, 5 followers in 1 day. I don't think I will finish my 50 follower composition before I reach 50 followers. Often my composition process is slow, so don't be surprised if a week has passed and I still haven't finished the composition yet. I will get it done when I get it done. I emphasize quality over quantity with my compositions.
Update 3: 6/24/2019
I'm just 1 away from reaching the 50 followers mark. As for the composition, I'm about halfway through composing it.
Hi! I recently uploaded five pieces and I'd love it if you'd check them out! Unfortunately, I had some problems while uploading so they didn't turn out perfectly. On piano shelf, they did, so if you want to print them out, please go there.
I’ve been extremely busy lately, and some of you know that I took a break from MuseScore.
Not quite sure what to do with this challenge, or this group in general to be honest. I might be selecting certain judges every month. I’m open to any suggestions that you have though.
I’ve bee crazy busy because, as you get older, life gets more hectic. What should we do?
