Thanks to Elke,  we now have a page for everyone to contribute their parts with bowlines (should anyone do this regularly). It'w in the Resources section labeled "Sheet Music with Bowline". If you're wandering what the heck a bowline part is, you'll soon find out. I had posted a video on the Community page explaining how the bow line is the perfect representation for what the bow is doing while playing. When I release the Practice Course, you'll be able to learn much more about it.

Beautiful! Iím just a beginner and only playing Suzuki Book 1 and fiddle tunes, but using the bow line even fur such simple pieces has been a revelation and immensely helpful.

Alan, make sure to take the time to learn the keyboard shortcuts in Musescore. It makes SUCH a difference in entering music! In the beginning it feels like you have to learn to type again, but after a very short time it becomes such that you basically don't need the mouse any more. I am so impressed with this program!

For the things I have posted I also have the musescore files for the empty bow line. Let me know if you want to use one of them for your practice - it would save you having to enter the melody...

That's great!  Earlier this week, I decided I would start with baby steps, learning the basics of MuseScore by reinterpreting Melodie on the Bowline.  For a beginner, it was a real eye-opener seeing the piece reduced to almost all whole notes and half notes. Will contact Elke - but I think it needs a little tweaking first.

Yes, thank you Elke for being so thoughtful and to you Beth for placing the score sheet in the Resources.  This has become my standard for learning a a piece of music.  Thanks.
