Someone in the musicschool's ministrings ensemble (age 6 to 12) has his birthday today. So I wrote a quick arrangement for them.
I made a version of Fools and put it on youtube:
This is what happened:
"we had to take down your video". No yt, you didn't 'have to', you were asked to and you complied.
"You received a copyright strike". Yes yt, because you decided to give me one. Nobody asked you to do that. You want to treat your users that way.
So I learn Youtube hits first, then warns you. Hm, way to go.
Here is page 1...
You can watch the transcription with the original audio here: solo transcription with band.
Or simply the naked solo: solo transcription
Youtube doesn't allow me to upload the original soundtrack due to copyright infringement. Fair enough, so I put the video on vimeo. Makes me wonder how legal it is to put a transcription online even when I'm not selling it.
Added Google Analytics.
Added 'Transcriptions' to the website. I have 20 or so transcriptions worth checking out. They are mostly handwritten and I'm still looking for a nice way to present these.
Also added a 'for students' tab under various. I have uncountable pieces for beginner pianoplayers. Some of them are really just a base to start jamming.
And also added a 'Mini-strings' tab under various. The local musicschool has a string orchestra with 10+ kids eager to play this stuff, and they do. The idea is to make recordings of the pieces in September and present these to Stretta.
