You ever think about how weird and good it is that there are no serious contenders to standard music notation?

Like, you don't even need to specify which one you use

If you ask, "Do you read music?" everyone knows what notation you're being asked about

@bgcarlisle I hadn’t, and that’s totally true. Unlike every other form of human communication. Huh.


@morganth I mean, I've seen sort of "novelty" alternate music notations used for single publications

But nobody is trying to start a new school around it or anything
