Here are a couple of MuseScore files for the tune going by the names of Loch Lomond, Red is the Rose, and others.

It will be familiar to almost everyone.

It makes an easy, fun, sweet beginners' piece.

You can hear it played in MuseScore (free download from musescore.org), and slow it down, speed it up, sing along, and play along.  Read it from the sheet or listen and play by ear or both.

I made two versions that differ here and there in the rhythm and differ in key signature, one being in D and the other in C.

======================================

 Edit:  somehow I am not able to attach MuseScore (.mscz) files.  So this post is in limbo so to speak until that issue is resolved.  I thought that @KindaScratchy had posted MuseScore files previously.  Maybe I am wrong.

I had tried, unsuccessfully, to upload a Musescore file way back in the Ash Grove thread. Trying again, in case something has changed. I know this isn't the right tune (if it works). This is just an experiment.

 

EDIT: nope...didn't work.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

I'm not that familiar with musescore.  Does it let you save the MIDI file?  If it does, than you can definitely post that here, then others should be able to download it and listen that way.  I've been using Finale Notepad (also a free download) and it lets you compose, play the MIDI, save the midi, export, export .pdf file of the piece, and will transpose a MIDI file in to sheet music for you.  I don't know if that helps, probably not.  I imagine that all these functions are available in musescore though.  Just haven't messed with it that much myself.

There is no failure, only results.

Yes, I believe MuseScore can do all the things you mention.  Unless I am wrong, if you keep using it, Finale eventually asks you to pay.

Trying again.

Edit: apparently still unable to attach .mscz files to posts or PMs.

There is a real problem with posting files, I know that. I'll try to resolve it.

I wondered if maybe a .zip file would work but just tried it and it didn't. Can you upload it somewhere else and link to it?

I tried uploading Reunion_Example.mscz and it says 100% but I didn't see anything so I uploaded a picture of my horse and that worked fine.

A suggestion, change the extension on the file and send it with a 3 character extension. We can download it and rename it with the 4 character extension.

Okay, here I'll try to upload it with a ".wav" extension.

NOTE: this is a musescore source file.  After downloading it, please change the file extension on your copy to ".mscz".

Edit: Okay, that seems to be a work-around!  @Kevin M., thanks for that devious suggestion.  Folks, please make sure to change the file extension from ".wav" back to ".mscz."   Otherwise your computer may catch on fire or something. 

@KindaScratchy I used to upload files to musescore.com for others to download.  But after five uploads, they want you to start paying.  If you have a suggestion of a good file-sharing site, though, I'd be inclined to try it out.
