"Richard, does the FVE ms. have it right? Laurendeau sounds similar to Durandeau, but the former's first name was Louis-Philippe, while the published Ossman solo and piano acc. both cite as composer a Durandeau with first initials…"

"Thanks Shawn!  I had suspected that it was in A notation and was surprised to see it in an English publication. The theory of the publisher not knowing better does make sense. I have thoroughly flogged the subject of A and C notations (as well…"

Trapdoor2 replied to Samurai Banjo's discussion Reuben Reubens Paper Collection Released
"LOL. While it might be for a 6 or 7 string, the tunings I know of for those don't go below G. gCDGBD or gGCDGBD. Easy enough to tune the 7-string down to get that A but... It appears to have no other notes that drop below D. I can't…"
