    ...sports event version.

    I thought this was funny. I'd have to sit down to a piano to see if this was even feasible. I'm not educated enough to look at and tell. I'd be interested in hearing if any of you all would know.

    If it was played like it's (mostly) sung it would be an accurate score. ;)

    Have you got one for Danny Boy set to the Londonderry Air? :lol:

    Looking at it more closely now, I see that there are 3 quarter notes in the second bar, so that means the rest of those notes in the bar don't fit, right? :oops: I was just wondering if it was an accurate score or if someone just threw a bunch of garbage together.

    If you treat the notes printed small as grace notes, then strictly speaking it is correct, as grace notes are considered to take up no time at all. You'll notice that the notes printed with the larger font always add up to three beats in each bar. It looks like this was scored using software that wanted to stick to the rules.

    In reality, though, there are so many grace notes there that it just makes nonsense of the concept, and, like it says: "time is not really an issue here".

    Melisma can be utterly horrible, but when someone like B. B. King does it, I kinda like it!

    Looks like Baroque keyboard ornamentation written out.
