Introduce Yourself! :)

Does anyone else just want to have one master discussion for introductions? No? Just me? Welp.

I think, so that we keep things organized, we should have a central discussion for introductions! That way we can have everyone's pronouns and other important info all in one location for easy reference later on. :) So if anyone has yet to introduce themselves in the group, or if you would like to reintroduce yourself, do it here! I'll start in the comments below. :D

Soooo, as our lovely group admins have said, PLEASE make sure to include your pronouns, so that we don't misgender you! ^^ You're also welcome to share your sexual/romantic orientation, gender, and other more specific labels if you feel comfortable doing so, but don't feel pressured into doing so if you do not wish to. I would also love to hear about how you came across music/MuseScore/this group, if you want to share anything more about yourself, and feel free to share a random fact about yourself or anything, really! xD

Cookies vs cookie dough

1. Cookies have more textural variety. You can have crunchy cookies. Soft cookies. A mixture between the cookies. The dough? Depending on which kind, they're pretty similar with hardly any variety. They're just either goopy or squishy. But with cookies, you can achieve the dough effect by not cooking it as much, getting the best of both worlds.
2. It's better for ones with chocolate chips. Melted chocolate inside of a cookie? It's hard to best that.
3. Dipping cookies in milk is amazing. Dipping cookie dough in milk is a sin. Nothing more to be said.
4. Health risks of salmonella. While I've never gotten or knew someone who got salmonella from cookie dough, and it's probably not easy to, you're more likely to get that from cookie do than baked cookies.
What are your opinions?

Hello

I’m Ryan. I’m a gay person. I’ve been in the same relationship with my spouse now for six years. I’m a self trained musician, with 25 years of experience in piano. I’m currently working on my knowledge in musical theory. Gotta give a big thanks to MuseScore for enabling me to explore the world of musical notation, arrangement, and composition. Looking foreword to hearing some of your talents and creativity. I’m excited to learn new tricks and musical phrasing's! 🤗🇨🇦

GuitarTuna

This is a nice app. I use it to tune my guitar. It’s very helpful as accurate. This app also has options to tune other instruments like a violin. And for I think $10, you can get these little fun guitar chord related games, that help teach you the guitar.

Overall, great app. And I highly recommend it.

Newb question about artwork

Greetings all INFP members. I just joined, trusting an old frog like me can be INFP, too. 
I was encouraged by some of the good music here and thought I'd park some of my Emily Dickinson song cycle here as well as a few selections of one of my ballet scores.
I am impressed by the art work many of you embellish your work with. I am concerned about copyright infringement in my own searches. For example on a dance number "Frog Prince"  I would like a likeness of a frog prince, but everything seems to be in copyright, including ballerinas and action photos. And how does one find or contact the owners? Phooey. There is a "public domain ballet art" site, but what is there is dull. 
Any suggestions?

Almost reached 50 follower milestone

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.
