Boogie Woogie on Piano - plus percussion
L E T ' S_ B O O G I E , _ B A B Y !
As I was tired of trying and decipher cryptic MIDI-Files, recorded from Keyboards by MIDI sequencers, I searched for scores on the Internet, found some of the most famous Boogie Woogies on the piano on .PDF - and fed them into MuseScore .
Ideal stuff for testing the new options like "Swing" and "Tremolo".
Furthermore, I tried to write a percussion track without the main mistakes of modern Rock/Pop/Hip-Hop
a) always repeating the very same one, two or four measure-drums-pattern on the "groove machine"
b) thus boring the audience by this repetition
c) drums not so big and loud, but a little more decent, similar to "handmade & unplugged".
My thank goes
to Werner Schweer and the Musescore development team for Ver. 2.01 and the new soundfile (.sf3): The new Musescore 2.01 is big - and so is the new sound-routine for playing online at musescore.org.
to Albert Ammons, for >>Boogie Woogie Stomp<< 1939 (posthumously)
to Clarence "Pinetop" Smith, for >>Pinetop's Boogie<< 1929 (posthumously)

to Meade Lux'' Lewis for Jam-Session "Boogie Woogie Prayer" + "Answer" (posthumously)
I love to hear the Boogie rolling and swinging'!
May be, there are real Piano- and Drums-/Percussion Experts in the audience? As I'm no pianoplayer and no drummer at all: Let me know, what you think, about rolling tremolos, swinging bass lefthand patterns or setting up a drum set for swing, and what could be done better.
