Notation Issues

I write a lot of big band stuff that requires piano comping, bass improv, and solo sections. I was wondering, does anyone on here know how to get the slash marks that indicate comping/improving? Kinda like this....|////|////|......
I have no idea, so I do them manually with the symbols tab, but that extends my composition time by a month sometimes. Any help would be appreciated.

Jazz standards transcription plan

Below are song titles from a "transcription plan" that was being pursued by this group in 2017-2018. The idea was to take the top 100 jazz standards appearing on the list and provide lead sheets. The list was  compiled statistically, and is ordered by frequency of recording (see the site for more details).

As of this writing, lead sheets for about 2/3 of the top 100 songs on the list have been submitted to the group. (The full list includes 1,000 tunes, in case you were wondering.) At the bottom of this message are the titles that have not been done.

You are welcome to work on the remaining titles, or any other titles considered to be jazz standards (or popular song standards from the classic jazz/swing era--roughly 1910 to 1960). If your song isn't one of the 1,000 songs on the full list, it's probably not what most musicians and jazz fans would consider a jazz standard. That doesn't mean it's not a great tune, but in most cases it means the tune is not widely performed. (Perhaps we need a Musescore group dedicated to overlooked and under-appreciated  jazz tunes and traditional popular songs.) We will try to be as inclusive as possible when adding submissions to the group, while still keeping the focus on tunes that you might hear played and sung in jam sessions or on gigs by relatively mainstream jazz performers.

You are also welcome to submit improved versions of any songs that have already been done for the group. Perhaps a song previously submitted is missing lyrics, or missing the introductory verse, or has chord changes that are not widely used by musicians in performance. So far, the group has not been flooded by multiple versions of any given song--if we were to get, say, 10 charts for "I Got Rhythm," we might need to pick the best 2 or 3 for the main listing, but currently that's not an issue.

Note that if you are starting a new chart, you may save yourself some time by working with an existing "Wikifonia Archive" chart and adding your own corrections, improved formatting, and missing sections / lyrics as needed. See the following discussion for more details:

To add a score to the group's collection, open the score in or find it in your account's list of scores, click the "three dots" action icon at the top right, and then choose type in "Jazz Standards Lead Sheets" to search for and choose this group. You can then leave a comment here with the song title and the URL for the link to let us know you've added a new score. If your chart has notable features or corrections, add a note about it when you post, and consider adding the details to the comments on the score page as well.

"It's legislative issues," says one supervisor who's been engaged with the sales firsthand (Among bundles he gotten was a Taylor Swift "VIP box," which he presumes her group sent to a large number of industry insiders around the designation time frame.) "Who's a voter and who's not a voter? Since the Recording Academy abandons it so murky, there are these in the background ruses." 

While forceful advancement is predicable for the music business, the measure of Grammy-explicit promoting has as of late move higher than ever. "The promoting is tightening up," says Daniel Glass, leader of Glassnote Records, which has propped up specialists, for example, Childish Gambino, the Temper Trap and Mumford and Sons for Grammys previously. "The measure of cash being spent on promotions in exchange magazines, the messages with the grimy expressions of 'For your Consideration' — it used to be inconspicuous and careful years back, however it appears as though the gloves are off and it's significantly more worthy presently to connect. Individuals are coming up to me and saying 'I realize you're casting a ballot! If it's not too much trouble vote in favor of this present!' It's exceptionally glaring at this point." 

A year ago, Steve Knopper chronicled the extraordinary craftsman crusades by Harry Styles, Portugal. the Man and others – and how a few administrators like Monique Grimme, co-proprietor of the New Jersey non mainstream name Bongo Boy Records, gather names of plausible Grammy voters from systems and online gatherings. Grimme offers an administration for outside the box specialists to gain admittance to that rundown, which has more than 8,000 email locations, and shoot their limited time materials amid Grammy casting a ballot season. "It's an approach to tell the casting a ballot network there is a ton of ability out there that warrants their thought," she says. For outside the box specialists, such administrations are crucial to their professions. 

Numerous Grammy contenders are additionally competing for the honors by tag-joining the melody generation process itself. "The measure of coordinated effort between composing, creating, aestheticness on tunes — it resembles there are insufficient lines for credits," Glass says. "Individuals are adding to the chances of making it. Here and there are 11 or 15 individuals on a melody. Individuals are thinking all the more cooperatively to enhance their odds." 

Without a doubt, as per the honors' parent gather the Recording Academy, in excess of 21,000 entries came in for 84 classifications this year. To abstain from being covered, some littler specialists pool their cash and take out a promotion together for expanded perceivability. For in-person advancement, "you additionally have the Grammy blenders, the get-togethers sorted out by individuals themselves in urban areas with significant parts, where specialists can discover the casting a ballot network," Grimme exhorts. Move music veteran Lawrence Lui, who runs Bampire, a promoting firm having some expertise in featuring non mainstream specialists for Grammy thought, says some exchange productions turn out to be "truly totally reserved" in advertisements set by the profound stashed Big Three marks. Therefore, non mainstream specialists swing more to focused social promoting and cordial systems administration with very much regarded hitmakers and individual performers. "Each and every piece helps," Lui says.

Getting chord symbol playback, manually

Lead sheets are of course disappointing to listen to in MuseScore because there is no built-in facility for generating accompaniment based on the chord symbols.  Programs like Impro-Visor, iReal Pro, and others excel at this, and maybe some day MuseScore will have this ability.  Meanwhile, I have created a resource you might find useful.  It's a "cheat sheet" score with typical jazz piano voicings (as well as more generic voicings for folk/pop etc) for a wider variety of chords.  Just add a piano part to your lead sheet (using Edit / Instruments), copy and paste from the "cheat sheet" to the piano, then mark the piano invisible (also in Edit / Instruments).

Here is the "cheat sheet":

In the context of instrument technique the effectiveness and efficiency of the introduction repertoires are related to posture flexibility.
The basic posture with the 1-3-7 tone pattern confirms the gender triad directly. The term gender refers to minor, minor, seventh dominant and half dim. Neighbor tones are also introduced, so that position analysis and harmony can interact directly.

Looking for big band charts

Hi!  Some of you may recognize me, I've been involved with jazz and MuseScore education online forever, but for whatever reason, it only just occurred to me to turn here for music to play :-).

I direct a big band of adult amateur musicians.  We have a library full of the typical charts by Nestico, Mantooth, etc.  I figure some people here have probably created some really great music for conventional (5+4+4+4) big band instrumentation and spent time getting the part to look and all so they are all ready to print and perform, but don't have access to a big band.  If that's you, hit me up!  If your music is for that format and the parts are in good readable shape, we'd love to try them out!  Respond here with links - whether your own music or others' you think we should check out.  My band isn't the Basie band and won't sound like that :-), but I'm happy to make a recording of us doing our best!

This isn't a competition, although who knows, maybe some day we'll organize one.
