Did anyone else have this issue? When looking at or printing the “score” as opposed to Violin 1, Violin 2, etc, the bottom of the pages is missing the bottom section it does. Not print, either.

I am attaching a screenshot of what appears on my screen. It prints like this also. This is just a screen shot of page 1 to page 2. There is no issue if you print them individually, violin 1, violin 2, etc.

 The gray bar is the space between the pages. This is how it looks on my ipad, and how it prints. The violin 4 section is not on any of the pages if you look at the entire score. Just wanted to point it out.

Hay @cid @Ripton, all - here's a re-issue of the full-score .pdf - I think the original was scanned and lost a few bars at the foot of the page.

I created this directly from @Fiddlerman 's XML file - and is in .pdf format -

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Fiddlerman,

on Violin part #4, measures 15, 39, 47, 49, I haven't bought a 5 string fiddle yet to be able to play the F note and unlike a banjo I have a hard time detuning and retuning in one beat.gold_star

I hope it's to just play G for that beat.  dancing

@Mark  @Fiddlerman -

Well spotted Mark.   I guess most would do as you have and go for the G, although it may confuse others.   

In fact, your post confused me - because - until you mentioned this - I've never looked at the actual score sheets until now - I just worked from the XML file - where it is OK, and in fact, as you suggest, it's the low G3 - well at least it is on bar 15 of vln 4 - I assume the other places you identified are the same, or some other playable note in the chord.

Here's a clip from the originally posted score - 

vln-4-b-15-original-1.JPGImage Enlarger

And this is it as extracted from the MusicXMLfile - which ( I assume, but haven't checked ) is what is used in the click track.

vln-4-b-15-current.JPG

  It's easily done when putting an arrangement together and dropping one particular voice by an octave, finding another note in the chord, or stuff like that - been there LOL 🙂

  I could go through all the parts (including viola) and check those just in case a similar thing has happened - but - I really don't want to potentially confuse the issue by posting "updated" scores - that's probably best left to you Pierre.

Woohoo, I am excited! I missed last year's submission deadline, so I am hoping I can submit at least one part this year.

My neighbors probably want to strangle me for all the noise I've been making.  But hey, "no pain, no gain" right? Except, they feel the pain and I get the gain (I'm really sorry, neighbors :-S)

Hmmm,  I'll maybe change my strings back to synthetics for this (or use one of my other fiddles)....   this one's currently fitted with the Pirastro Chromcore (steels) which I actually love for some of my fiddle stuff, but for this, I find it a bit harsh on the ear....  no matter - this is just a practice (with the click track intentionally audible) on Vln 1 - still needs work......   I always have trouble playing against a click track- but that's just me!!!   Anther few run-throughs should get it closer and avoid the occasional fumbles and bow-direction issues.....   

Hope you're all making good progress !

Sounds good @BillyG ! 

My practice is coming along nicely for this - and bonus, I just put Warchal Amber strings on so it's sounding nice and warm. It was a nice idea to post your practice. I'll try to follow your excellent lead, and post something this week.

🙂 @CyndieZ - yeah, please do - any/every  one - like @Ripton earlier - no harm whatsoever in sharing your practice takes - it also encourages others and keeps them engaged with the project - these things can so easily slip, and suddenly there's no time left !

Yup, I need to work on the bow direction-change / general bow distribution - I'm sometimes running out of bow on the long held notes!

I like the Warchal Amber as well, I have a still-playable set filed away in the fiddle "box of delights" (well, it's more like a Pandora's Box - it is scary to open it rofl) LOL

Got viola 1 more or less down today.....  in fact it was OK apart from the fact that I must have had the mic gain set too high because it red-lines / comes in too hot in the crescendo bars.  Oh well, I'll do it again....   [ and the reason it's "in the viola range" but doesn't have the timbre of a viola is simply because it's really a 4/4 fiddle restrung C G D A as many of you'll already know.... ]

Here it is with Pierre's "full click track" - 

  Hope to do more parts, time permitting....  but I'll tidy up / redo vln 1 and vla 1 first (sans audible click track) and submit them....

You are too funny @BillyG  - I'm starting to accumulate one of those boxes myself!

🙂 Aye - it haunts us all !

Just for fun, although no specific cello part has been requested I had a shot at it, an octave down from viola 1 - here's a bit of fun - man - I like it myself - and THAT is saying a lot because I'm always so self-critical.  It's almost reasonable, with just the occasional minor timing issue if you listen closely - which is cool as far as I'm concerned !!!!!  The video is actually taken as a screen capture from a recording and mix with Pierre's click-track in Audacity - camera is off-line ATM due to software installation/upgrade issues, but I wanted to record it for posterity because I doubt if I'll ever be coming back to this one.... (not that it was an "issue/problem" or anything, just too many other things to do!) LOLOLOL
