Without the invaluable input from you, the majority of the Forum's most active members, I would never have been able to get my "A Most Amusing Man" score in any kind of presentable shape.
The score's gone through a myriad of changes since I first posted the totally wrong 4/4 version in The Listening Room. Slowly but surely, with your expert guidance and thanks to the generous expenditure of your time and attention, the score has gone through a complete transformation.
Getting the formatting correct has been the biggest focus, from notating rests and notes in 12/8 time correctly, to using ties and slurs correctly, and many other details which initially were either sloppy or completely missing.
I incorporated virtually every note given. In the few instances where there were several correct ways to go, I made my choices.
The music itself has changed also. It's now in the more standard Concert Band key of F. There are better note choices made here and there, and three new lines being added to the score in keeping with standard Concert Band orchestration-- Now there's a flute 2, clarinet 2, and alto sax 2.
There may still be things that could be improved, but hopefully it's no longer so amateurish that it would be dismissed out of hand if I decide to submit it to a publisher.
I made a good sized document of all the notes you gave me on the various threads I've had going about this. NOW I have the task coming up of applying everything in that doc to the two other Concert Band scores I have which need as much editing as this one did. whew---I can do it!
Here's the score you helped clean up. I need to make a new audio demo, and that's a very big project in itself, but for now, here's what I have:
"Final" score of "A Most Amusing Man"
EDIT: 7/9/13 new file up with multiple fixes
THANK YOU ALL!
