    Hello Kathleen :

    In M2 of the solo part are the half notes with asterisks just another form of X-shaped note head for a half note? They only seem to occur in measures where there is a standard half note.

    The book I am working on is for guitar, and I have never seen that type of notation before. The transcription is facsimile copy for a blind teacher. Do I have to use some other symbol for the strange notehead or can I use the X-shaped note head.

    Also, I know I have to include clef marks in the facsimile copy, but do I have to introduce the treble clef with small 8 below in every parallel? or can I do it only once, like a time signature?

    Is there a preface to the edition that explains the symbol? I’ve never seen it before -

    if you choose to use a special note head symbol, be sure it’s not one that you’re using anywhere else.
    As far as the tenor clef symbol, I would treat it the same as the treble clef and add it in where you add in the other clefs.
