Ardently Hoping

Grand Illusions 20 / Muro Box 20

Alright, I don't really remember why I named this what it is? Ardently just means with passion. But i'm going to leave it.

And, just real quick, I don't really know why I haven't published anything for awhile? It's almost been a month now. XD
But, the best guess I have, is that I've been kind of keep thinking I can do better here recently? And, that's not bad, if I didn't think that way I wouldn't really be where I am skill wise? (If you could call it that.)
But, something that I put in place when I first joined. Was that I wasn't going to hide anything. That's why a lot of my first melodies are a bit weird? Because I knew once I started using the draft system, I'd just keep everything in there. And, I am. I kind of forgot that this is where I learned and what you see is me learning as I go. I never didn't publish what I made, but I am now. And going to change that.

This was made in august, last year of course. And this was a test. Back when I only used 20 and 15 note. I did the middle line, bottom and middle, and top, bottom and middle, then just top and middle.This really helped me oddly. It really helped me understand. Yet I never put it out. Until now.

I hope everyone's having a good day!

Hole punch paper strips Export

Hey! It looks like this melody can be played offline on a 20 note paper strip music box!

All you need to do is:

  1. Get a 20 note DIY Music Box Kit from our online store page if you don't have one
  2. Export the melody to PDF with paper strips, print it out and cut with scissors. Make sure to use the right paper size and set you printer scale to 100%, otherwise the size won't match. It's better when paper strips are thick, so if you are going to use thin office paper, we recommend you to glue two or three layers together. Another option is to laminate paper strips with a transparent duct tape
  3. Punch holes with a tool from the music box kit
  4. Enjoy your favorite melody playing on a real music box!

This is a good reminder for me, too! I'm glad to find someone talking about this. I have probably 80 drafts, lol (although most aren't original like yours).
