Not too sure of the mechanics of trombone... but for human voice I prefer the Klavarskribo notation displayed horizontally,...
...adapting the Klavarskribo-style notation to a slide trombone... or to the human voice.
If you mean a 90º-rotated version of Klavarskribo, then that begins to look suspiciously like a primitive version of conventional notation, though with less information. Or do you mean to do it completely without lines, since the voice doesn't have any "keys" or other external connections to individual pitches?
...because there you can "see" where you are, for I can't stand those confusing #,b and cancel signs. Klavarskribo is "wysiwyg" for music notation!
I find traditional notation to be very
WYSIWYG ("What You See Is What You Get", in case anyone isn't familiar with that
notation). But I'll repeat for emphasis that it is so in terms of musical
relationships (which is all I
care about), and not
in terms of physical placement of the notes (which is, after all, different from instrument to instrument, and not even a valid concept for the voice).
At first they show the note on this line and then they say "sorry it's not in this line, but half note lower/ higher, because... What's that nonsense?
The "nonsense" is your way of viewing the notation. But you've already indicated that you're unwilling to try other perspectives, such as my description here, in another thread
, so I won't repeat myself here, much less try to expand on that view.
You seem to have strong objections to traditional notation because you feel it is complicated, confusing, and inconsistent. It makes me wonder that you're willing to write to us in English, which is far worse in those regards.
Klaverskribo shows the note directly as when you are shown the key on the piano keyboard!
So does traditional notation, though I don't believe either is derived directly from the other. Each line and space in traditional notation corresponds to one of the white keys on the piano, because both correspond to the notes of the diatonic C-scale. The piano then has black keys inserted to allow playing in other keys or chromatically, and the notation has sharp and flat symbols to indicate those same "in-between" notes, which on the piano are the adjacent
black notes. (Well, so much for not adding to my earlier descriptions of standard notation.)
What could be easier and better?
"Easier and better" than a notation tied to the keyboard you seem to detest? A strange question, rhetorical or not.
Yes, I know colors make it look "childish"... I planned to color the buttons so that they are easily identified by the notes. So what ?
Especially one that requires colors, tho you can probably find another way to mark up each symbol to show the octave.
I don't really mind if people don't take my keyboard serious,....
A false accusation. You
are the only
one in this discussion who has suggested that your ideas are "childish" or not "serious". Some of us may find them less wonderful than you do, perhaps even criticize various technical details, but none of us have been derisive or condescending about it, and I consider it dishonest of you to attribute to anyone motives which they haven't expressed.
