Default Re: An experiment in notation

I prefer it, though I wouldn't notate the D throw that way, as I don't play it that way (if playing a light throw, I play all three gracenotes the same length). But that's being pedantic. Overall, definitely an improvement.

I've also experimented with changing the note head shapes. a "^" head for a lifting gracenote, a "v" head for a lowering gracenote, a "~" head for a sweeping gracenote (high A doublings and birls), and the normal full note head for the sounding tones (my term for gracenotes that aren't really gracenotes, but actually, well, sounding tones within an embellishment).
