Hi there!

I am trying to find sources for the above, so far with little luck. Anything for Sax/Trumpet/Trombone, or anything else would be great.

If anyone has any ideas it would be great to hear from you. Thanks;}

Kind regards

Do you have notation software Tom?

If you search for a song as a midi file and load it into notation software it should extract the score.

Midi file contain the score

Hi Mamos!

No, I do not have such a thing, but am looking into it - prefer a book, though.
Kind regards

The good thing about Ska/Reggae - thinking of the Skatalites and Burning Spear - is that pentatonic scales seem to fit well as an improvisatory tool. At the moment I am either playing C maj pentatonic or E min pentatonic and having a whale of a time - fun to dance and play at the same time, especially in this weather.

Try http://www.noteworthysoftware.com/composer/


Import and Export Standard MIDI File Format
Use the interactive Import Wizard to load an existing performance that is contained in a standard MIDI file (*.mid). The performance will automatically be converted to notation, which you can then listen to, edit, rearrange, and polish. Standard MIDI files can be exported, which can be shared with others who need *.mid file format.

Me too- the skatelites are amazing, the best 'feel' horn section I know. Try playing a skatelites number and getting that laid back, loping groove sounding authentic- very tricky indeed. Ropey tuning, bum notes galore but none of that matters, it still grooves brilliantly.

Which is how I solved the problem - my excellent Trombone teacher, who plays in Paolo Nutini's horn section amongst others! My favourite was "Riding for a Fall" by John Holt - great parts for Horn Section.
