Here are some notes that were added into the library.htm page of this webspace on Wednesday 13 August 2014.

I like to write song lyrics. Alas, I do not play any musical instrument and I am not able to transcribe the melody to which I sing the song into a musical score.

Yet I need to make a record in permanent form of the melody. A record that hopefully can be a stepping stone to a singer singing and recording the song.

So, I have recorded me singing the song and embedded the file in the following publication, so as to make a record in permanent form of the melody.

The publication also includes some notes about the process of producing the publication.

Please know that the following file is just under 924 kilobytes in size.

Getting the sound to play is sometimes a problem: it seems to depend upon a combination of which browser is used and which PDF viewer is used and upon security settings.

Downloading the PDF to local storage on a computer and then opening the PDF using Adobe Reader is a good choice to make.
