Down in the moss pit

Post by NessieNoo » Wed Apr 06, 2005 5:55 am

Here's a four-part jig with a bit of syncopation - if you've already tried "Cock, Hook and Look" then you'll know that I like syncopation!

The name of this one came about when my teenage daughter went to her first rock concert - my wife asked her what it was like down in the moss pit (mosh pit!).

Let me know if you like this one. I'm pretty pleased with it. My other tune has had 70 downloads and no feedback - I need feedback. :lol:

Interesting tune.......One little faux paus I did notice in the BMW coding.....You missed Placing a Exclamation point at the start of a few of the bars.......This causes a incorrect playing of the 2nd time and 4th time repeats.....The tune just stops when it should make a transition back to the 2nd time of the 4th part......I would like to see more of your work.....You have a nice flow in your writing........Thanks for sharing it.

Thanks for the tip on the bmw formatting. I use Electric Pipes to play my tunes back because the sound is more like real pipes. I guess it must be a little more forgiving on the formatting. I guess every line should start with a bar line?

Thanks also for the positive comments on the tune. That means a lot, especially from you Mark.

Each new line in BMW must have a Exclamation point or the exclamation point with 2 apostrophes (for repeats) ....the program has certain parameters that are required for alternate playing IE: 2nd time 2nd part if any of these are missed the program uses the default settings.....I know it is confusing at first.....but, if you or anyone else gets stuck in the program...private message or email and I can talk you thru the code that may be needed.....Once you get some practice in the BMW program you can enter a 6 part tune in about 10 minutes.

:shock: Eh? No it doesnae Mark, never heard of that before and you know how many chunes I`ve input!

Only thing I can think of is the repeats might be a problem as I never use "2 of 2 and 4", as it doesn`t work very well on playback. Check it oot on ma own pc as I`m at work just now, but the gif image looks fine.

Another two parts

I was humming this tune to myself on the bike the other day and I found myself humming two more parts, so here they are all together.
