Parsons code pipe tune search beta
Know the melody but not the title?
( I NEED BWW/BMW FILES TO INDEX THIS PARSONS DATABASE, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org )
Howto use parson search:
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parsons_code for information.
Notes: don't start with the leading E. Start somewhere furter in the tune, forget about graces and doublings.
Fuzzy-ness sets number of missing/faulty entries to allow.
Example: Scotland the brave
1st bar is : LA LA B C LA C E
(note repeats, goes up, goes up, goes down, up and up again)
parsons code for 2 bars : *ruuduuurrddd
(first blue is starting of code *)
(more code, means better match)

OMG, you don't know how long I have been waiting for a search engine to find tunes in my head. I thought about creating some kind of dictionary based on theme notes, or searching through bww files for sequences.
What a thrill to find your site.
I just hum a tune, use the up, down, repeat letters and... like magic the title is found.
You are a genius. I will never be stumped for a title again.
Thanks so much,
Other successes i've heard of are: 2 Youtube movies being identified, a nameless bww file and mp3's
