  1. Identifying Classical Music
    An extract of some unknown composition playing in my mind. Could anyone recognize from which piece this extract is. The following notes are in arbitrary key and time signature, tempo may be somewhere around 160. /e1,e1,e1,e1,e1,e1,e1,e1/e1-,c1-,d1-,d#1/e1-,f1-,e1-,d#1-/e1---,g1,a1,b1,c2/...
  2. Site Feedback & Technical Support
    A few things: My post count suddenly decreased this afternoon from about 9,081 to 9,066 and I have no idea why. My signature (which was the sleeping emoticon) disappeared a week or two ago and I have no idea why. I can't use bold or italics or underline (and so on) in group messages OR my...

  7. Music Theory
    Throughout music history there have been pieces that start on an unaccented beat and my mind tends to want to make that the downbeat or accented beat until I realize something is askew and I have to do a mental flip or catching up to be in synch with the music. The most famous example might be...
  8. Music Theory
