One of my less motivated pupils in 1997 had about two weeks to learn 10 minutes worth of music for his Solo Performance for Standard Grade Music on bass Guitar. I wrote this as part of the programme he was offering. The chord symbols could be interpreted by guitar or keyboard. It’s also suitable for other bass clef instruments or even guitar (I’ll do a TAB version eventually) but you’d need to leave out the double stops and string bends depending on which instrument you choose.

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.
