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

After years of careful consideration I have decided that the 1970s can be expressed by a single chord.
"The Mu Major …"
The Mu Major is a 'slash chord' where the bass notes are 'displaced': raised by a tone with the 2nd (or 9th) degrees of the major scale replacing the conventional role of the tonic (or root notes).
In pop music this chord came to prominence in the late 60's and was used to great effect by The Beatles, for example, in "The Long and Winding Road". It then became the staple of keyboard voicings far in to the 80's, until it was superseded by standard sus chords in the 90's.
Top selling Artists of the time that made frequent use of this chord include: Elton John; The Rolling Stones; Pink Floyd; Abba; Led Zeppelin; Bee Gees; Wings; David Bowie; Bob Dylan; Rod Stewart; The Beatles; Deep Purple; Santana; Eagles; Neil Diamond; Neil Young; John Lennon; Cat Stevens; Queen; Chicago; The Who; Donna Summer; Jethro Tull; Stevie Wonder; James Last; Fleetwood Mac; The Carpenters; Creedence Clearwater Revival; Boney M; Simon & Garfunkel; Electric Light Orchestra; George Harrison; John Denver; Bob Marley; Earth, Wind & Fire; Yes; Black Sabbath; Slade; Billy Joel; Alice Cooper; Carole King; Supertramp; Genesis; Barry White; Emerson, Lake & Palmer; The Sweet; Joni Mitchell; Eric Clapton; Paul Simon; Steely Dan; The Jam; Toto; Sex Pistols; the Clash; Kraftwerk … and many more!
