harm. nat. looks very clear!
There's is an article by Douglas Niedt on his website. Look into this thread for how to find it:
Then again you have the choice because the notation of harmonics on the guitar was done in so many different ways.
I checked it out. Very helpful for me, but, oh my, it seems every Composer has their own way. I'm really not a fan of the minimalist approach. I like the diamonds with the bells and whistles.
I have a question
: the little circles that we use for natural harmonic, they are also used for open strings. Do people really need the circles for open notes? I've got some gnarly chords, but you can pretty well see when there is a 'B' ,'D', or 'G' in it that it might be open. I does seem like a case by case thing. I do tend to like to overuse symbols, but...
Second question: As long as the Composer makes sure to include all pertinent instructions in the forward, all should be clear, no? No matter what 'system'...
With the piece I'm working on, clarity is king.
So, are there 'Editions' of these CG classics, where the wayward notating styles have been standardized?
