YCOO - very badly needing English Horns, Violas and Double Basses!!!

Hello everyone.
You may already heard about us. We're the Young Composers' Online Orchestra ("YCOO"). Recently, we've started a new project - we're gonna play Elliot Butler's Drama for Orchestra No. 6.

In the process of preparing the parts for our members, we found out that we don't have any English Horns, Violas and Double Basses!

If you can play one (or more :P) of those instruments, please consider joining us either forever, or for the current project only. You could save a LOT of effort and hope we're all giving in our orchestra.

Have a great day,
Milan Steklý, moderator of the YCOO

Variations on "Your Best Friend"- COLLABORATIVE PROJECT!

  
So, I had this idea going through my head- why don't we, the composers of MuseScore, collaborate on a "theme and variations" piece? People who want to collaborate to this piece will be given a month to add a variation of a theme that I have chosen to the overall piece. Once the month is over, every variation (including a few of my own that I create) will be compiled, an outro will be added to the piece, and I will submit the piece to be performed by my school string orchestra. Doesn't this sound exciting? :) (This is open to all of MuseScore, BTW)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HOW IT WILL WORK-
I have already chosen the theme that everyone will be working with- Flowey's theme, "Your Best Friend" from Undertale. (plz no hate, thx). I have also already made an intro, arranged the theme, and have added a variation of my own to the piece.

YOU (the composers of MuseScore) have until 8/31/2019 to come up with an up to 5-minute variation of your own to add to the score. (The score can be accessed here- https://musescore.com/user/5088096/scores/5664927)

Once you have created your variation(s) and are ready to add it/them to the score, you have 3 ways to submit it-
1. Post a comment on the score (or on this thread) linking the variation to me.
2. Message me through MuseScore with the link (file?).
3. (most recommended) Email me at tornadodog33@gmail.com with your link or MuseScore file. (DO NOT SPAM ME, HARRASS ME, OR COME TO ME WITH UNSOLICITED OFFERS. I WILL FLAG YOU AND REPORT YOU.)

Once your variation is in my hands, I MAY OR MAY NOT edit it so that it is clear, readable, involves enough members of the orchestra, and so that it links up with the preceding and forthcoming variations. I also will add some of my own variations to the piece. 

 Once the deadline is past, I WILL NOT accept any more variations to the piece. This is when I finalize the variations, add an outro, and submit the piece to be considered for performance. All people who entered their variations will be credited (person to variation- if you made the variation, you will be credited on that variation.)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RULES FOR ENTRY-
1. DO NOT ADD ANY MORE INSTRUMENTS. This piece is for a string orchestra with a piano and 4 percussionists (1 mallet, 3 untuned)- NO MORE. I will not accept you adding any more instruments (i.e. woodwind, brass, keyboards/synths, more percussion lines, etc.) to the score. At the very most, I MAY allow you to add ONE *OPTIONAL* woodwind or brass instrument (or solo voice) that can be replaced by an instrument that I have already placed in the score (string or piano). Any more than that, and I WILL NOT accept it until you rewrite your variation so it fits in the already-existing score format.

2. KEEP IT PLAYABLE. I intend this piece to be played by real human beings, who have limitations that a computer doesn’t. Therefore, PLEASE, for the love of GOD, don’t give me a bunch of string block chords or insane 128th-note passages that would SHREAD someone’s fingers if they even attempted to play it. That is an absolute NO-NO, and I will not accept your variation until you get serious and give me something that’s actually GOOD.

3. IF YOU MAKE A VARIATION, LET ME KNOW. I have ways of finding out if you purposely tried to hide your variation and pass the entire piece off as your own. And if I find out that you intentionally tried to violate MY copyright, I WILL DEMAND that MuseScore take down your piece. (However, I can understand if you merely forgot, or problems came up with you sending it to me. But, if I find a variation that wasn’t sent to me, I WILL assume that you tried to hide it intentionally, until I find out otherwise.)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So, what are you waiting for?! START COMPOSING and HAVE FUN! :)

Is it possible to add tab to score?

Hello all, this is my first post. 
All i'm asking is if i put a score of a solo nylon acoustic guitar piece in to musecore 3 how do i get musescore to add tab below? I've noticed  many score/tab hybrids have the notes on the thinnest strings are on the tab when playing on the wound strings gives it enough body, is there a way around this automatically rather than having to do it manually? Also, i read of the ability to put straight up tablature in and have musescore add a score, how is this possible?
The score i have is Farewell by Sergio Assad, and i'd like to turn the free tab of Schnee in Istanbul by Carlo Domeniconi in to a tab/score hybrid as found on classclef.
Thanks very much.

The little jewels within Mozart's music treasure chest

Many pieces from Mozart are amongst the most beautiful things that can be eared, for these who are receptive to at least.
But there are also pieces from him which won't procure that undescriptible feeling ( mix of ecstasy/peace and achievement. Plus the need of earing more of it ;) ) 

I am not particularly fond of the second movement of Symphony nb.25 for example. It's fine, but in my opinion it lacks something, or I don't get that thing, for any reason. 
I just feel this Andante won't really start and tell the story, or if it does, it seems it couls have been much more than that.
But, and this is the subject of this topic, there is this small passage within, which is beyond everything else in those 70 bars.
I mean, that's precisely the moment I am waiting for when listening to this movement.  I wished so hard Mozart would have  develop further this absurdely simple but at the same time heavenly beautiful theme!
Here it is:

Would be fun to point out further "magic" passages in other Mozart's compositions. There are so many!
The problem is cutting them to put  here in the topic ( needs some audio editing or score writing,  this last one being an excellent exercise )
