Are you bored at home and want a fun Music infused Forum games-full evening?
Up for grabs are some juicy rep prize :woo:
Then you are in the correct thread :awesome:

Last week I did a themes round that you can find here.

Since the outbreak I have since departed from my violin :emo:
But I spent an evening recording little snippets of famous classical tunes!

I've recorded 10 tunes and thought it would be a fun game to see if any of you can guess them!

Apologies for any waivers in notes etc. because I had to record these quickly :zomg:
The game will start on Friday the 3rd April! :nopity: :music: :danceboy:

Happy self-isolating!

Big shoutout to 8472 for helping create the awesome videos :woo:

You play very nicely indeed

It sounds fairly baroque to me: Handel, Bach... Am I warm?

Transcribed it onto MuseScore, still no idea
although the lack of accidentals means the composer probably wasn't that adventurous?
