D02 x players, 4 notes, 3 days, 1 voice
As I found Jules' game to difficult for me I propose this:

I tried to add a picture but I don't see it so it's:
2/4 Sol mi re si

Lucian - having a hard time with the sound - what notes are you playing?

AAARg, it isn't working!

It worked fine for my the thread/game I started. I chose the image icon and put the link in place. I will do it again:

When I check it just says image without actually showing the image, but this is the link:

The link itself works and you should be able to follow it.

I added A# A G E (La# La Sol Mi)
Tomorrow I'll try to figure out how to add pictures.

I am assuming we are keeping the same order. My submission shortly.

Ed converted the piece to 2/4 time which is immaterial to how the music will sound and was not a bad idea at all because it has everyone contributing a measure while I was dealing in half measures. I put it back to common (4/4) time so as to continue where I left off, but for simplicity will talk as if it was written in 2/4.
Ed played the first and second measures (i.e. the entire 1st measure in 4/4 time) as written but changed the second measure on his score. He then played his third measure different to how he wrote it. Lucian played the second measure as Ed wrote it and played Ed's measure in yet a third way. Lucian's 4th measure is clear enough.
I left my second measure as I wrote it and Ed played it, I found myself guessing a bit as to what Ed's intent was in measure 3 and hopefully got it right. I added Lucian's 4th measure and my new 5th measure. Hopefully this is all acceptable.
I should add that the entire piece so far is best played in the 2nd position.
It seems the image function is still eluding me, but the link still works.

I guess Ed have seen in my original post that I wrote 2/4 Sol mi re si, that's why he changed to 2/4. Is my bad because I couldn't add the picture with the score.
But here is a new rule, we can play the game either way 2/4 or 4/4.
I chose the 2/4 for the simplicity and I try to do my best I can, but feel free to play it the other way around, and even make your own rules. Let's have fun while playing, it's juste a game :)
ps I see Jules is playing in the second position, I tried but is a little confusing for me so I'll keep the first position. According to the rule "we play whatever we want' feel free to play it on the second position :)

Ha, I was so caught up in learning new software that I failed to notice your specification of 2/4. My apologies. I should have caught it.
As your first four notes established the key as GM, the primary notes are G,A,B,C,D,E & F#. Only the C requires playing in the first position. If we play in the next key up (DM) now the C is also played sharp. I am hardly advanced enough as a student to speak with any authority here, but I suspect that many pieces played in DM are therefore played in the second position (often with low D tuning, i.e., tuning the low E string to D). The advantage of course is that it is much easier to reach the fifth fret. Not only can we reach the A on the first string without shifting, but we can easily fret notes that are normally played on open strings. This allows for vibrato or slurs that are not possible on open strings.
It is indeed confusing to play in second position because our initial training causes us to associate notes with fingers as opposed to frets. For example, our minds tell us that A is played on the third string with our middle finger, when what we want our minds to realize is that it is played on the third string behind the second fret with whatever finger is most convenient.
At some point in time we need to morph from associating notes with fingers to associating notes with frets. This is no doubt one reason why Delcamp often has us playing B on the fourth fret of the third string rather than an open second string. This is a necessary step I think to learning the fingerboard. I would therefore encourage you to try again to play in the second position if at all possible. That you find it confusing is, in a sense, all the more reason to attempt it for it forces your brain to think of frets as opposed to fingers, if you catch my drift. This is a very tiny issue at this stage in our development though, but it might give you a bit of a head start when we are introduced to pieces where the music demands that we move from 1st position.

Okay - I have given up the technical software stuff for now - what I added was 3 slurs of F# to G, then F#, A
