There are many a song out there that I would love to find viola sheet music for.  However if I were to limit myself to just 3 I would have to say:

 

1. "Highwayman", Loreena McKennitt

2. "Foggy Dew", The Chieftains

3. "Health to the Company", Owain Phyfe (Or any other performer for that matter)

 

Can anyone here possibly help me track at least ONE of these down??

A quick look through my usual sources didn't turn up anything. Can you transpose from fiddle/piano/flute music? That might be your best best.

The only program that I have is: Muse Score.  I tried to transpose something from violin to viola once and it looked like something threw up on the inside of my monitor and my friend who was beginning to teach me, who can in fact read music unlike myself, even told me that what was on the screen was WAY wrong from what it should be.

 

As far as transposing by hand from say, treble clef to Alto clef, I wouldn't even know where the heck to begin! I mean I can read music well enough (in alto clef) to identify when a note needs to be slurred, when a note is an up or down bow and which finger goes on which string.  That's ALL.  In order to have the correct pacing or "near" correct pacing I have to either listen to a cut and dry audio file of the music played directly from the sheet that I have or I have to plug it into MS and listen to the midi file produced there.  Either way I have to Hear it to get the pacing...I am such a noob.

 

Speaking of software.  Does anyone know about any software that will register what you are playing on an instrument, if you plug the instrument into your computer, and convert it to Sheet Music?  A friend of mine makes his own "Home" Movies and would like to be able to compose the background score or even medley several scores together for BS but isn't quite talented or experienced enough to be able to write music from "mind to paper" So to speak. 

Thanks for the info and assist so far guys and sorry for being long winded.

WOW! That is one heck of a list!  Hopefully I can have one just like it one day :D

Speaking of which, Ferret would you be willing to e-mail me the sheet music for She Beag She More? My e-mail address is listed in the "Biography" section of my profile.

A friend of mine told me I should learn that song back when I first picked up the instrument.  Also are the sheets for it in Treble or Alto?

 

And thank you for posting such an impressive list!  Now I have to search You Tube to figure out what any of those sound like >.<

Done mate :)

The music is in both treble and alto so you can learn it on violin and viola.

BTW.... I used my wife's computer to send it so any reply would go to her

Perhaps you might consider sharing them with the website? We could always use more content in the "Sheet Music" section. 

Pierre, any copyright issue to consider with adding sheet music to the site?

The name VinceKnight is derived from my Confirmation name which is Vincent Angelous.  Angels being the warriors or Knights of Heaven.

There are 2 main reasons that I use this name:

1. I've been using this name for everything from RP Chats to e-bay accounts for the last 13 years so it's kind of a standard go to user name for me.

2. There is at least a "Denny" on the other site and I want to cut down on confusion. 

Of course I could always make my display name Farm Whisperer since I live on a farm and I have yet to find a horse I can't ride, a dog I can't quite with barely a word, a sheep I cannot shepherd without using a dog, and a chicken I can't....a chicken I can't....a chicken....hmm...forget the chickens they're stupid anyways! :D All I do with them is take the eggs out of the basket and I got too many hip and knee problems to go chasin' them about! :) ;)
