Time, Please! About an exhuasted publican trying to close the bar: A finger picking delight designed to help all those hardworking restaurateurs, hoteliers and bar staff who work late into the night serving the last-to-go-home revellers. It is designed to politely tell �em it is well past time to go, push them out the door, turn the lights out, and go home. A catchy sing-along tune suited to harmony vocal and guitar/banjo ensembles. �Time, Please!� is a nice way to end a set and a happy day. Remember to spare a thought for the staff at your next gig�and don�t stay too long after closing time. The song was inspired by late night listening to a tribute album to the great songster Mississippi John Hurt (I didn�t want to go home). Its origins are in a gentle country blues style with a dash of blue grass. The simple song structure uses the standard 12-bar blues format.

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.
