some questions about searching PDF scores

Post by lastyaer » Wed Jul 12, 2017 2:29 am

Hi folks,

I have some questions about searching a PDF score which I found in the list page "1,701 PDFs on the Delcamp forums, listed in alphabetical order: " :

[PDF] Bach, J. S.; BWV 0846 Prélude en Do majeur - Ergonomix - fr 21

How can I find this file?
1. I can not find this file in english-language forum by searching forum.
2. I click "fr21" and go to the french-language forum, but I don't find any searching tools.

Could anyone help me? Thanks !!

If you put it into Google, preceded by Delcamp, up it pops.


And the link there brings up the PDF

The link en12 takes you here: Our scores for classical guitar. Once on the Our scores page you can put the list in alphabetical order by choosing Subject in the drop-down menu at the bottom left (next to the New topic button). You can then navigate to the pages with Bach compositions (if you sort in Ascending order Bach pieces are on pages 7 and 8).

Alternatively use the Advanced Search option in Forum Search (via the cogwheel at the right) and search for BWV 0846 in the Our scores section.

Fortunately, as pointed out, this score was also on the English forum. For future reference, if it had only been on the French forum, you would have needed to register separately on that forum and to have posted two messages there including an introduction in order to use all the searching tools and access pdf files.

There is more guidance on searching for scores starting here.
