Timothy Twiss replied to M'lou Brubaker's discussion Reading musical notation for the various Tutor books
"It's flowing quite well now. Watch it expand. I am attempting to keep the format the same, but am using a portrait landscape which allows an extra song per page. All fingerings are "as is" from the original."

Timothy Twiss replied to M'lou Brubaker's discussion Reading musical notation for the various Tutor books
"You're welcome. It's instead of flowing pretty well now. I am keeping the basic format of the music the same, but I am putting 4 tunes per page because I am using a regular portrait format. I can always change it later. "
