Hi Ian,

I'd like to second Jody's suggestion of a list of tunes.  I love what you've accomplished thus far, but I would also find it useful to be able to peruse the full catalog without any particular idea of an author or title.

Thanks, Ian, for what you're doing for this site ... Really great work!

Best,

Adam

Thanks again for the suggestions.

We are having a think :-)

Ian, ,  Thanks so much for making this music available.It has been great .It has really opened my

eyes to the great music out there I never even knew existed.Any chance of posting the music to 

Eli greens Cakewalk. I really like the tune and would love to give it a try.

                                                            Thanks

                                                            Dave Raphaelson

Thank you Dave, 

There is, as you say, so much music available. Not all is good, but it should not be lost. I have posted a copy of Eli Green's Cake Walk in the library, so I hope that it helps.... how about a video when you get it up to speed?

Thanks a lot Ian. It might take me a while, but I'll give it a try.

Just scanned the "View All" feature...very nicely done!

This thing just keeps getting better and better...!!

I agree with AlabaMArc , the Show All is just what was needed. Thanks for that. Now I get a comprehensive view of the whole collection and I also get to discover anomalies I may have otherwise missed. For instance I now notice that there are Two Pensacolas, one intermediate and one difficult. They are pretty much the same arrangement but the "difficult" one comes with more fingering indications so contains more ink. So i guess reading it is more difficult although playing it is not! By the way, why is "Show All" followed by a question mark? Anyway I sure do appreciate having this feature, all kidding aside. 

All the choices are in the form of questions? Probably because the Brits are preternaturally polite? Perhaps Ian is attempting to use a larger percentage of his punctionational quota? I don't know?

I'm sure that's it?

If I knew what that meant Marc I would be certain to politely agree.

Jody ...Why the question marks????  I thought I was the pedantic one  ;-)

 Perhaps it should be :     'See More ?     ie.   Y'all wanna see more ?

I have a whole keyboard full of dots, dashes exclamation marks here..  so I may as well use them !!

As for my son who programmed and constructed the database, the keyboard he uses is like this:

...so you should think yourselves lucky that my keyboard has writing on it or you would definitely see a larger percentage of punctionational quota!

Jody, regarding gradings. I don't have enough time to photo-edit, compile, enter etc all the scores as well as play them. I have only made a guess at the complexity of scores, as you say, based on the dot density  ;-)

If you would like to work through the scores and send me a list I will be delighted to re-adust grade levels as per your suggestions.

Ian

I agree - this is a helpful feature, thanks Ian!

Regarding the classifications, I suggest replacing the word "difficult" with "advanced" so we have Easy, Intermediate and Advanced.  Or maybe "Challenging".   Ragtime Episode, for example, causes no hardship... but is does require moe methodical attention to technical details (fingering, timing) to render music from the score than, say, Sunflower Dance.
