    Thanks, that was very educational. I never realized it would be so accessible to master if you are only given the proper guidance. Hopefully these materials will find it's way into all the classrooms.

    Hehehe... nice one. However, the fugue could be more interesting because the theme is quite nice and can be exploided very much.

    Maybe I should write a double fugue on it sometime heheh...

    I was expecting that old Gershwin(?) song:

    So you want to write a fugue
    you've got the urge to write a fugue
    you've got the nerve to write a fugue
    so go ahead and write a fugue that we can sing!

    [repeat in fugue fashion]

    Never be clever for the sake of being clever
    for a canon in inversion is a dangerous diversion
    never be clever for the sake of being clever
    for the sake - of - show - ing - off!
    "AAAAUUUUGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!" -- Charlie Brown

    If my memory is OK, this nice song has been written by Glenn Gould and not Gershwin.
