I have a few tunes in my head that I've heard somewhere / played long time ago. They are very famous pieces. I can type out the score, and I think around 4 bars would be sufficient for someone to identity the music.

Are these type of questions on topic here?


No they are not on topic here as our FAQ states:

Music: Practice & Theory Stack Exchange is for musicians, students, and enthusiasts. If you have a question about...

  • practice or performance technique
  • music theory, notation, history, or composition
  • technical analysis of a specific, complete work, or well defined section thereof
  • instrument maintenance or repair
  • usage of specific music software or hardware

and it is not about...

  • business or legal issues (some of the latter may be asked on Law.SE)

  • genre categorization or other concerns from the perspective of a listener rather than a musician (try Music Fans instead)

  • requesting external resources (questions should be specific and answerable on this site; external links are for references and supporting material)

  • identifying a song, style/genre, instrument/equipment, technique, chord progression, etc.

  • transcription of specific works, including identifying notes/chords/meters/other elements in songs

  • shopping help — including product or music search — or buying/selling advice or recommendations

  • recommendations of pieces to listen to, study, or play, or that meet particular criteria

... then you're in the right place to ask your question!

They are instead on topic on Music Fans SE.
