If you want this puzzle to be harder, flip over the card with the names of the composers and try to solve the pictures without it.

Each picture represents one of the famous composers on the list. Some of them are pretty silly and/or terrible and rely on homophones (sometimes loose ones) or other foolishness.

Once you have figured out the picture riddles, you should have nine composers. Use the list provided to turn those into nine numbers from the rankings.

Once you've gotten all the composers' ranks, you will need the card with the table marked 'Start I1 I2 Target.'

The hint says, 'If the three notes ring true, you'll reach a proper target.' The targets are in the right column of the table in green boxes representing the numbers 0-9.

To test for an answer, choose one of your nine numbers and run down the list of possible targets. If you can add I1 to your starting number and get another of your nine numbers, and then add I2 to that and get another of your numbers, then the target next to those intervals is one of your solution code numbers.

One example is if you start with Beethoven (#1), you can use the 4th row of the table and add I1 (10) and then I2 (29) to get to two more composers on the list (Handel at 11 and Purcell at 40). This works, so it gives you a Target of 5, one of your solution numbers.

Start your checks from the smallest numbered composers (Beethoven = 1, Chopin = 4, Bernstein = 7). If adding I1 doesn't land on another composer, then the associated I2 won't work either.

The solutions are as follows: Row 4 (1 --> 11 --> 40) gives 5, Row 6 (4 --> 21 --> 29) gives 6, and Row 10 (7 --> 12 --> 25) gives 9. Therefore, the solution is 569.
