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