All MIDI attachments must be one of the following:

  • Adapted from works created prior to 1923. This goes for both the composition and arrangement. This means you cannot post MIDI versions of recent songs.

ok,
it isn't much going on here. So i share two of my arrangements for old german Folk-Melodies (i am german). The rest should bring some money as a booklet. 8-)
I choose the two songs, which are most well known outside Germany.
Please write, wether you like it or not.

Both of those are very nice. I had never heard "die Lorelei" before.

which german folksongs do you know? Maybe "muss i denn zum Städtle hinaus"? It was also sung by Elvis Presley, wenn he was a GI in Germany (Wooden Heart).

Ha! I hadn't heard that one either, but that is a fun video.

they have been downloaded several times. Has anybody studied one of these songs? How do you assess the degree of difficulty?

I'd say probably medium, rather than hard, if we use the grading system of Gilbert de Benedetti, the one who made the MIDI files that are included with Synthesia. That is, if the songs were in that collection, they'd be in the medium group, number 2.
