I'm sure many of the unfamiliar-to-me tunes may well import to MuseScore using the pdf-reader plug-in (I often use MScore to quickly get the feel of a piece before I'll decide to work on it rather than spending time "learning it" directly from sheet, and deciding - hmm, nah, I'm not fussy about that one LOL) 

What pdf plugin ? I didn't know MScore could do that. You give it the score and it "plays" the tune surprised ? I haven't found it in the list of plug-ins, what's its name ?
That would be useful sometimes… I'm useless in front of a sheet music. Always learn everything by ear. I should work on that, but I don't always feel like it (especially in viola clef), it's so much easier once you've listened to the music…

Now all I need in the next life is the ability to memorise them all!

Ha, got myself a quick break at a coffee shop 🙂  - thinks - I may stay for lunch!   Cool ( Bill lets the lads just get on with the work!)

@Gordon Shumway - my apologies Andrew - it's not an actual plug-in - it's an online conversion program - you'll find it here - https://musescore.com/import - just point it at your local pdf file, it will get uploaded, and when converted a "download" button/link appears so you can retrieve what is now a .mscz file.   The converter will have a "pretty good shot at it" especially if it is a nicely formatted (machine generated) score.   It's not always 100% perfect, but most times I have used it, the discrepancies are relatively minor and can be quickly edited manually (well, if I really really wanted to).  Certainly saves having to enter the entire score manually (in which time I probably could have just worked it through a good number of times from sheet)

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

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
