Trapdoor2 replied to Timothy Twiss's discussion Briggs' to A/E notation
"It might help you to use an old trick on one or two of the A notation pieces to get your brain to make the switch. Get a pencil and a straightedge. On the A notation sheet, draw a new staff line at C, below the original's bottom staff line.…"

"(I have read classic banjo notation with low C and G bass but trying to read the noites and transfer them into the correct fingering is very hard for me. Thanks for the advice"

Timothy Twiss replied to Timothy Twiss's discussion Briggs' to A/E notation
"Remember what F.B. Converse told his pupils- "You're in G and I'm in A, we read the music in the same old way." From his "tuned and confused" series c. 1901"

A.N. Chase replied to Timothy Twiss's discussion Briggs' to A/E notation
"Steven, the thing that 'Briggs' (dGDF#A), 'Rice' (eAEG#B) and 'C' (gCGBD) tuning all have in common is that the intervals between each string remain the same; this effectively makes any banjo a transposing instrument…"

steven leuschner replied to Timothy Twiss's discussion Briggs' to A/E notation
"is there a way to play tuned in C from A notation without transposing or playing akwardly?"

A.N. Chase replied to Timothy Twiss's discussion Briggs' to A/E notation
"I've gotten more comfortable with C notation than anything over the last couple years as I've been working on newer classic-era stuff.  Granted, plenty of that music was also set in A, but a lot of the time I'll set a tune…"

"Oh man, back the truck up to think of the lutenists in those dark castles in Europe. I'm sure a few lost their heads from an ill tuned performance in front of a king."

"Thanks Andy. Still doing a little cleanup, so if you spot something, let me know. Now that I have the foundation, I can do other stuff. Joel seems to think there is value in C notation. I would like to do a completely "fingering free: version.…"

"I had one on my Hartel and it was fine, but what fun was playing alone?? haha. Better to suffer together. I tell you this, if I were ever booking serious gigs with money involved, I would work with a synthetic head......at least have it on standby."
