In honor of this year at last coming to an end, I have a new song for you. It is from the Series called “A Korean Odyssey” and is called “The Three Fates.”
It is written in B-Flat, which has 2 flats. Just like my bicycle. HA!
Here is a trailer (it doesn’t really look like a trailer to me, more like a video clip. A trailer would be on 4 wheels).
Here is my take on the Styx Classic “Come Sail Away.” (For some reason the all-piano version wasn’t working yesterday.)
And here is their official video:
Here is a link to the sheet music for all of you musicians:
Music Tip #6. If you want to change a Major Chord into its Relative Minor, just add the sixth note directly above the fifth. For example, the notes for a C Major chord are CEG. If you add the next note after G, which is an A, you get CEGA, which is A Minor 7, the relative minor of C Major.
All of the accompaniment on the second clip is written with the sixth note added, giving it a real minor feel. Some of it works, some of it not so much.

I started working on this song this morning. One line of music was in Bass Clef, but I entered it as Treble Clef.
So all of the notes are a minor or major third below where they should be. There are two lines of music in each clip and one of them is the same in each, yet the entire song sounds completely different. I’m not sure which one I like better. Maybe I will use Trouble Clef.
Here’s a song from me to you
In the event you’re feeling sad and blue I think it’s splendid, I think it’s great And it’s been around since ’68
Here are a few different instrumentations.
Here are three versions of a song you’re sure to remember. Along with some really strange pictures.
I’ve added instruments to the latest song
It’s a bit over 15 minutes long I worked on it while in isolation Maybe next time I’ll add narration
Here it is with the sections reversed:
And here is the all-piano version:
I am adding different instruments to my version of Tubular Bells.
The last version was all piano, and all at the same speed.
Here is a brief preview:
Here are three versions of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells. During the process, I experienced writer’s block until I decided to just put one font in front of the other.
The entire song was 427 measures, many of which repeated. Now all I need to do is add some different instruments! Where can I find a Tubular Bell??
Many people think this is the “Theme from The Exorcist.” However, the album was recorded and released before the music for the film was even picked. The Director was in the offices of Virgin Records, looking for music for the film. He saw this amazing album cover and played what was inside. The rest is history.
The very interesting story about the making of Tubular Bells is at

Here are the final versions. At least for now….
