Someone in the musicschool's ministrings ensemble (age 6 to 12) has his birthday today. So I wrote a quick arrangement for them.
Happy birthday - for ministrings
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.
I arranged and pre-recorded Praise for my gospelchoir, the St Mary Gospel singers. The piece is from the musical Rock Nativity, written by Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent. It's such simple, yet catchy and effective music.
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.
So far: ? minutes
