Subject: RE: Lonesome boatman
Hi Alison, well done ! How did you do that so fast ? Great ! I was curious to see if I already knew that tune, the title didnīt mean much to me. Problem was, first I tried with ABC2WIN, it didnīt work, he didnīt like notes longer than 4/4, you used much of them. I have no soundcard here so midi was of little use, but in the end I downloaded a midi-player that first draws notes on the screen. I heard nothing but was able to play it off the screen (Fortunately I have my mandolin with me today..). Must have looked a little bit funny, īcause Iīm at work here. Well...:-) But at last I recognized the tune after some measures. Good job, Alison !
