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 :-)

Anybody home? (Awaiting permission to join groups)

I recently asked to join two groups. It's been days and I've received nothing from either group. I don't suspect the owners are enlisting the FBI to do a background check so I assume the owners are absent, away at school, generally derelict or, perhaps, have bought a farm. I wonder how many others are awaiting confirmation.
I realize this is not the fault of MuseScore management...perhaps someone has a solution?

Mobile version of score player does not show play time

I think the redesign of the play bar is fine. I don't care much about placing it at the top or bottom etc., But I've found that when I play a song on my phone, I cannot see the current play time anywhere. This is very annoying as I often make comments or communicate with collaborators using time markers (e.g. section 3:00-4:12). It is very inconvenient if the time information cannot be seen.

Pot of Gold??

Would it be possible to include percussion instruments?

I love musescore so much because it's easy to use and is very customizable. Although there are many times when I wish to implement auxiliary percussion instruments into my arrangements and transcriptions but there are non. I am not sure if this is even a possiblility but it would be amazing to be able to have at least some kind of shaker and bongos. Thanks for listening and I love your program!!!
