Geocache Description:

The posted coordinates are fake! And not particularly interesting! You must solve a puzzle to find the proper coordinates.

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

When bandito pulled into the driveway, he heard a terrible racket blaring from la casa. Upon entering, he found bandita listening to a cacophony of oboe, tuba, and viola over and over again. Several minutes passed, and she did not acknowledge his presence, as she was so enrapt in the discordant tones.

Finally, he yelled, “Give it a rest, bandita! This sounds awful!”

“Please do not be so crotchety,” she replied. “I am trying to listen.”

Pianissimo, bandita! This noise would not please anyone!” he shouted over the ruckus.

“But bandito,” she said, a semiquaver in her lip. “It is not the melody that is pleasing, but what is contained within.”

He looked at the notes that she had transcribed. “Hey, that’s pretty sharp!”

“You’re a natural, bandito. Let’s go find this cache.”

Below are the notes bandita recorded. The first staff is the oboe part, followed by the tuba in the middle, and the viola at bottom. Click for a larger image.
