TNDARLN Reading shape-note music (30) RE: Reading shape-note music 05 Feb 03

Guess I sent that response too quickly.

The shapes do not affect the notes=pitches- they only facilitate note-reading.

If your hymnals are oblong books [landscape rather than portrait orientation], then the website I gave above will have lots of information and links.

If your hymnals are paperback, you probably have 7-shape, as opposed to 4-shape [aka "4 note"]. There are lots of different "systems" of shape[d] notes out there, but again, the shapes do not change lines/spaces, etc.
