Phone Tunes

Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year.

These have all come and gone, which really leaves me all the time in the world to ruminate over the smaller concerns in life …

… like how to be a phone virtuoso!!

You see, as I was walking home yesterday night, I remembered how my girlfriends and I used to play “Mary had a little lamb” and try our utmost to compose various other tunes whilst we were on the telephone, no doubt chatting through the night.

So in remembrance of things past, knock yourselves out with these my friends!

The numbers indicate which buttons to press. Quarter notes have no marks surrounding them; eighth notes are surrounded by bars (|), half notes have a dash (-) following them, and dotted quarter notes have a plus (+) following them. (P) is pause. Sixteenth notes have two bars (||) surrounding them.
