Thread Name: Help: 'Sol Fa' Music Notation
Subject: RE: Help: 'Sol Fa' Music Notation
Hardly uncommon for a singable song to go outside the bounds of a two-octave (minus the top tonic!) range, since it only has to include any note below the tonic and any note at or above the tonic an octave above. Now, if one case were split between top and bottom (e.g., sltDRMFSLTdrmf) many more common songs would be representable with this system, though you'd have to show where the split lay, or alternatively, the high/low notes (e.g. sDd) at the start of the tune.
