Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

FOREWORDS This book was born in a casual way, because I have, being an amateur pianist and national music lover, learned lots of tangos, zambas, chacareras and some other rhythm that I made a part of my repertory. I always felt uncomfortable playing the written scores and to adjust to the stave, I preferred to improvise starting from the melodic line and then, get the music by ear. Any musician that read this lines should know that this is not something original and new, it’s something that many of us do, and in Argentine we call to play “on the grill” and to allow the imagination and the improvisation to fill the music space that the notes do not show. Also, trying to make enrich the harmonies of this pieces, I got close to the jazz and then I met the “REAL BOOK”, a universal book of that music genre where the pieces are only shown with their harmonica and own code. In that way was this book born, that has the original goal of follow all the needed steps to be edited and distributed on a legal way, with the editorial authorizations and the deposits that are established by the laws in Argentina. All of this was possible after visiting numerous music editorials, SADAIC, the national direction of intellectual property and lots of friends that are related to the music and it’s legal aspects.. I must say that on this road I have found kindness, care and respect, things that I appreciate deeply. I hope this is the first edition of this Project, and that it can be followed by further corrections and expansions that could help those who love the tango and enjoy this way of musical writing.
