What do you think of this?
« on: Jan 03, 2012, 01:12:28 PM »
I'm hoping to produce a book of Welsh tunes. Attached are a couple of drafts. Your comments would be appreciated.

Thanks

Jeff:
Neither of those open. They list as INDEX.PHP files, not .PDFs.

I've saved them as PDFs with Foxit, whatever that means.

Cute PDF on Sourceforge allows you to save as .PDF. It acts like a printer, and creates the .PDF as output. It's free, too.

Just save them as .pdf and they will work.

I am not a big fan of the light green of your cover but that is ascetic preference.

Second page looks good, but I would personally put the music on a single page and the background information and picture on the previous page. So: page 1 Port Eynon ... Found by harpist ... page 2 Actual music.

good idea.. Is it meant just as a tune book or are you writing about playing styles for a certain instrument?

The cover needs a coloured background because of the white in the Welsh flag. The nice thing about Welsh music is that there is no accepted style, it is up to the individual.

I think I've solved the problem, and the files should now open.

I like, only, the graphics is a bit low quality. I don't mean the what's on them, just the resolution/crispness/whatever it called. The sheet music and text look fine though, and that's the main thing. :D

Yes, I need to find a larger original flag or make it smaller on the page but, this is just a draft.

Ah, ok, in that case, looking forward to the finished product (hehe, was looking forward to it already, regardless of pics) :D
