Hi there! I'm an amateur in the question of making scores but one day it had to happen. So there is a link to this score and I'm waiting for your feedback about my work.

I have dabbled a bit in engraving (making scores). If you are serious about making scores I would recommend you get the book "Behind Bars" by Elaine Gould. It's viewed by many as the standard work on what goes into professional looking engraving. Carefully evaluate your own score in light of the information in that book. There are a number of problems, such as ties covering notes and dots to name but one, that you need to adjust so it looks good.

I understood, thank you so much! There is no need to buy a book because my friend actually has it, I will ask him. Thank you "lelle" one more time!
