Another Midi Question

As a new user, I have only recently familiarized myself with some basic circuits/programs and wish to expand my knowledge with a new project. I want the Arduino to receive midi clock (tempo) and sync a single LED to the bpm. Can anyone point me to a similar project or a good point of reference? Also, I am wondering if I can receive the midi message with the serial cable rather than a 5pin DIN? Thanks in advance.

Have you seen the MIDI links in the playground:-

Much appreciated sir, I did navigate over that page early on but couldn’t remember where to find it. Thanks again for a kick in the right direction.
