My goal is to make it as easy to read these notes as possible! What can I do to make it better? 🙂

Imparting the notes is great, but they don’t sound right if the rhythm is not correct. I listen to the song in segments on itunes to hear the rhythm, then play it on my instrument from the Noobnotes.
I’ve found this really helps!

Hey Mathew, thanks for your comment! I add a link to the song on youtube in the hope of saving you a search, it’s near the top 🙂 ive also recorded a few videos for a handful of songs, i hope that helps a bit too! i’m so glad you’re finding new songs through noobnotes – what kind of music do you listen to, and what instrument do you play? nat

It is a C- Melody saxophone. I listen to a wide range of music, but like to try to play pieces that are upbeat….although they can be challenging as you have to start playing them slow and then speed up when you can.
Thanks so much for doing this for everyone!

I get what you mean about the upbeat ones – i’m hooked on ‘dont stop me now’, getting up to speed slowly =D I’m so glad you found my site and are enjoying the notes – i get so much happiness from knowing i’m helping others too 🙂 🙂 ps. been working on ‘your woman’, aiming for today/tomorrow, it’s been a fun one so thanks for making me think of it =D

Thanks so much for putting these notes up, I just stumbled onto this site but it’s already really helpful!
I have just noticed that a lot of the notes are written as D#, when I’m used to seeing it as Eb, especially when the song is in Bb Major, like Rewrite the Stars. It would be even more helpful if this could be changed.

Thanks so much for the lovely comment, it makes me so happy to know others are enjoying my noobnotes =D And your suggestion is timely, i’ve been working on adding switches to the settings panel so you can toggle between Bb/A# etc, just ironing out some bugs and tidying code so you can expect that feature soon =D I’d love to know how you worked out the key for Rewrite the Stars? …my music theory isn’t so great hehe 🙂 I’m often asked what key a song is in, and i can’t advise =D If I understood the rules for working out the key, i could code it in and add the info to the settings panel too =) nat

it would be easier to read the notes if they were closer tgether so that we wouldn’t have to stop and scroll through the music while playing because if not I have to pprint out the music and I aint got enough ink for that!

Hey Mackenzie, thanks so much for your feedback, it’s really appreciated! The spacing between the notes (and the scrolling it creates) is something i’ve noticed as annoying as i play through the songs too. I’ve though a lot about how to make songs nicer to play – squishing up the font, making an auto-scroll feature, making the lines longer – however they all have their downsides and would be more work / code to load the page than is worth it. Printing does give the best output for now. Another idea i had was to create a 2-column option, although that’d only work on desktop and 60% of NoobNoters are on mobile – meh, i dunno! I’d love to hear any ideas you or anyone else have, i’m always open to ideas =D nat

I am a music therapist, and I just discovered this web site, it’s fabulous! Thank you a million times for creating these song charts which are accessible for everyone! Several of my students are using them now while we are doing remote continuous learning over google classroom and zoom.
I also love that there is a virtual piano at the top of the page for each song that my students can use at home, since many don’t have an instrument at home and schools are not open currently. However the virtual piano does not show when you are scrolling down to play the notes, so the whole song can’t be played, only the top part. Is there a way that the piano keyboard could stay stationary on the side so that the player can scroll down the chart and still keep the keyboard visible?
Thanks so very much and keep up the good work! We appreciate you and this website!

It would also be a lot easier for longer songs if it scrolled slowly for you so that you don’t have to stop, scroll, then start again. Otherwise, everything is on point!

Could you mabye post pdf or easy to print parts of some of the song? BTW i love the site 😉
