Notes game

Post by RodionGork » Sat Feb 04, 2017 4:54 pm

May I propose yet another music game? It is played at the local classic music forum, which my wife frequents - and I thought we can try it here also... Sorry if it was already proposed - kindly ignore this topic in such case please :)

We write down few notes of the tune to be guessed. We use only note names (e.g. C, Eis, B), no duration, no octave, nothing else. Whoever gives correct answer, proposes next tune. Surely it is better to choose some popular source (wiki, imslp) if the tune has variations. If the tune is not guessed for, say, couple of days, it would be probably better to give answer and give another challenge.

So here we go:

B C D B A B G

Sounds like a fun game. I assume the tunes have to be fairly universally known. By universally I mean at least half of the population of this forum will know it.
1) Ballone Burini 46C (4+5) cassotto (LMMH) 3/3 PA; 2) Accordiola Piano V (5+5) cassotto (LMMMH) 3/3 PA;
3) Roland FR8X; 4) Hohner Vox 4k (LMMH) 3/3 CBA

Yes, and moreover "half of the population not endemic to specific country" :lol:

I dare to add few more notes to the tune proposed above:

B C D B A B G B B A E B B A

(here only notes corresponding to the syllables of the song itself are included for simplicity, i.e. no grace notes etc.)

No, either I'm whistling it wrong or I don't know that one.

...Either I wrote notes incorrectly or described idea poorly :( However I've tried to choose the tune of UK origin.

Are there any sharps or flats in the sequence, or are they all naturals?

All naturals. We are going to denote sharps and flats explicitly still, otherwise it will become too hard :(
