Is there something you have that's uncommon, as a thing you were born with, or just an uncommon hobby?

I was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, which is a disease that I was born with (you can't get the disease mid-life, and it isn't contagious). It basically affects the amount of collagen my body produces, so my bones are pretty weak. It vaguely affects joints, ears and eyes as well. However, I have the most mild form of the disease, so I'm lucky! (it doesn't affect my mentality, it's just collagen) Do you guys have anything that other people don't commonly have? Even just a hobby? 

Two Instrument Suggestions

Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong group, but:
I have two instruments I would like to be added to a future version of MuseScore, if possible.
1. A mizmar/zurna--An (if Google is to be believed) Egyptian instrument that seems to be used in a fair bit of music that goes for "exotic" flair
2. Solo vocalists (as the MuseScore instruments all seem to imitate a choir)

Thank you.

On czerny as a composer

I recently got a bit into listening to Czerny's etudes as actual compositions and it turns out a lot of them are quite elegant and beautiful. I feel like I have missed a whole world of piano music to listen to, because I was not taught to play art of finger dext nor any Hanon when I started out. The first piece titled ''etude'' that I started with was actually already Chopin's 25 no 1 and by then I already had quite the technique so I just felt like ranting a bit about how we should appreciate Czerny a bit more. It feels like he has just been neglected together with Hanon and Kabalevsky for being ''practice material''. 

Btw here is my latest composition, a mazurka in the style of late romantic composers:

Stepping back to a saved online revision?

Is there a way to retrieve an online revision if necessary?

I originally upload the composition In January 2018.   Revise it May 2018.  Revise it again on March 2019.

For legal purposes, and if necessary, would there be any way to retrieve the Jan 2018 and May 2018 revisions?

I don't need to at this time, but this would be an incredibly helpful feature (at least for me)

Godhome Theme Sheet?

Hello Hollow Knight fans!

I have been searching the vast sea of the internet in search of the Godhome theme for any instrument, whether it be a string (which the actual instrument played in the actual theme), or a piano OR anything, but I can't find ANYTHING. Literally, nothing. I'm now going to ask you guys to help me find one for anything, (I play the viola by the way), or maybe I'm starting to think that maybe me or a group of us will have the be the fist one's to come with a sheet music for it.

Thanks guys, Short & Subtle out
