Liam’s Favorite Book

Named for my son and whatever book he happens to be enjoying at present. I started with the idea of a hornpipe having an A section predominantly in the tonic mode, and the B section predominantly in the relative minor. Feel free to embellish it to your taste.

I like it very much, thanks for writing it

midi chord problems

erm…the 2nd part midi chords are dissonent…B major? must be a gremlin in there somewhere

midi chords?

Marty, I’m not sure what your midi chord maker is doing, but those should be B minor chords in that 2nd part. If your midi player transposes them to B major, they will definitely clash with the D naturals in the melody.
