Why have a score for Bodhrán?

There is debate in the Bodhrán community, as to whether the playing should be written down or not. No Bodhrán player I know plays a tune the same way twice, and it is very much playing with the feel of the music.

Having said that, when I first started Bodhrán drumming I found it useful to have a guide as to what to do, so adding Bodhrán to MuseScore may help beginners. Also it would be useful to have the drumming added to a Tin Whistle score, for example, which gives a feel for what the two instruments will sound together.

However if you are dead set against Bodhrán notation, then I understand :-)

Does anyone have a ballad suggestion?

SO

I have had this project in the works, and have all the pieces lined up, except for a ballad, because I cannot find a ballad piece that fits the theme of this project. I will provide a link and the piece selection below for you to look up/listen to.

Theme Idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpU_yjsGkHs

Repertoire:
ThE sMiLeR - Kübler, Wunsch, Krause, de Moura, and Heidicke
In the Hall of the Mountain King - Edvard Greig
Bird & Bela in Bb (1st Movement) - Don Sebesky
Asphalt Cocktail - John Mackey
**INSERT BALLAD HERE**
ThE sMiLeR Reprise
Dense - Univers Zero

And no, am not trying to make a Bluecoats show, even though it looks like it. These are just the best pieces that fit with this theme.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

MuseScore 3 crashed after adding MuseScore Drumline!

I had a perfectly good MuseScore 3 working program, after upgrading to the latest version 3.0.5. There was a link to download MuseScore Drumline, which I clicked and installed the extension. Now I can't get MuseScore to load at all!

I've re-downloaded it but Windows 10 refuses to open it. All I get is increased CPU and Memory usage and eventually I have to close the unopened app.

Any suggestions?

Need brass writers to help compose a marching band show!

Not too serious about this, but I'd like to make a 3 part show that's medium difficulty and fun to play, and I need help. I'm a percussion writer, and I'd like to bring a few other people on board with this. DM me on insta if you're interested @mvlchandani 

(If I do get 3 or 4 people on board and are serious about this and we actually write a good show, I have connections and I could get Box-Six to buy the show from us)

Adding Percussion instruments to another part

In my case I would like to have the Woodblocks in the Drum Part of my masterpiece. The reason is, that they should come rarely in some Fill ins and could be played by the Drummer himself.
Or in another case it would be nice, if I could have a Percussion part with Tambourine, Cow Bell, Bongos and Woodblocks.

Is this possible? And does someone know, how it could be possible?
