I took everyone's suggestions on the piece I had started working and incorporated everything that I could. I varied the straight eighth notes on the main theme and broke them up with dotted notes and sixteenths where I thought it would help. I also cleaned up the misspellings. Before I had allowed Sibelius to choose the spellings at random as I entered each note via keyboard and didn't bother going back a really fixing those things. I used key signatures where I could establish a key and I also went through each measure and made sure that the runs were playable and practical; I was able to play each measure at full speed without falling all over myself. I still have some fine tuning to go but I hope that this will show an improvement on the very rough draft that I presented last time. Lastly I dropped the Sonata title as i never planned it as a sonata in the first place but just haphazardly stuck it on.

I had a lot of dumb mistakes in the first draft, but I learned.

Let me know what you think.

I will post a reply of this a little later. Maybe I'll play it myself.....eventually.

From looking at the PDF, this draft appears to be much more polished than the first one, and has far less mistakes-something I'd be more interested in sight-reading, and possibly learning. Revision is an essential process which every good composer goes through, usually extensively, before producing a polished work ready for publication. I congratulate your efforts and hope for your success. smile

wow, I didn't expect such a nice response from you given the tussle in the other forum. You are a gentleman and a scholar.
