Calligraphy Notes

Hey, you piano players out there who accompany singers from time to time- this one's for you!

You know that feeling you get when someone brings you a piece of music and it looks like this: (Cue the music from Psycho.)
The dreaded Calligraphy Notes. For some reason, someone thought it would be cute or special or add more feeling to the music to hand write it in, using some kind of crazy fancy writing. What am I supposed to be playing here? Help me, please.
If you ever get the urge to make your music cute, please take pity on the piano player and don't. Please.


  1. hm. Wish I could help you out with this one... but unfortunately it's all Chinese to me.

  2. I completely agree. What I do when I get stuff like that is pick the few notes that sound good to me and forget the rest. The listeners will never know.

  3. I don't think any pair of glasses could help that.....SERIOUSLY???
