I've been with the cafe for sometime now but have been lurking in the classical section all this time. I've been very impressed with the amount of knowledge shared here in this forum.
Anyhoo, I was sitting here composing tonight, which I do rarely, because I'm not very good at it and had an idea. ....
I thought it would be fun if we all composed a piece together. Maybe 8 or 16 bars per person rotating aorund. We could call it the "Mandolin Cafe Sonata", or some such.
For example, person A writes 8 bars and passes it to the next person B who adds their 8 bars etc. Kind of like the great pick tour if any of you were familiar with that.
I've got the 8 bar intro ready to share. Who wants to pick up the ball and run with it?
The only unanswered question I have is what format to do this in so we can all add our pieces. And the thought I had was if you can send me your piece, in PDF or some other viewable format I will maintain a master PDF on my website with pieces added as they come in.
Let me know what you think and if interested just post a "Yea" in this thread and you'll be person "x" on the list to pass the piece around too.
