Chris, we're so glad to know you're OK. If the bus was out, it was brave of you to drive all those people to work.

So the game goes on....(attached).

Yeah, Penelope. I was "da man" that morning, braving the H1 & H2 freeways -- thank you very much *Chris adjusts his aloha shirt*. The scariest part was dropping them off downtown -- close to Honolulu harbor -- wondering if we'd meet the swell. At least we 3 each had life vests. Still, I wasn't sure if the one-size-fits-all would hold that heavy-set woman. :lol:

It's coming along nicely. Perhaps M. Delcamp will let us save it and introduce some counterpoint when we get to the more advanced lessons? Maybe with a 'composite composer' pseudonym - like Alex Mendelbachski?
:lol:

Love it, Scott! Hope you'll play with us soon. Anyway, here's my attempt at finishing this one

It's nice to hear that melody played so fluently....Apparently no one noticed, but I tried to introduce some variety in the duration of some of my notes: the A in the third measure was supposed to be a half note, as were the B and the F-sharp in the next-to-the-last measure; the concluding G-sharp was intended as a whole note (though, because it came at the end, the cutoff was difficult to define except by damping).
I admit that overcoming some of my involuntary hesitations would clarify the intentional pauses.
Were we all resorting to some sort of notation, as Mike and I were? Or were you, Jean-François or Chris, playing entirely by ear and from memory? When I was in school, a tonal memory of even 9 notes was considered exceptional, and here there are 36.
