I suddenly find myself having to work with a musical composition
written in jeongganbo (mensural notation), which i used to be pretty
good at when i was trying to play haegum and kayagum. I use to have a
great little cheat sheet(s) that explained all the symbols and how to
translate the rhythms into "western" notation, etc. I don't have that
cheat sheet handy and all i have is the book "Theoretical Perspectives
on Korean Music" and couple of other less than ideal sources. When I
moved back from Korea last year i sent too many of my books off to my
folks place. Bad move! Anyway, I know some music folks hang about on
this list. If there is any among you you have a nice handout that you
use for jeongganbo and feel like being generous and sharing i would be
obliged. Meanwhile, I'll see how far my memory and my Kuk-ak-ki kich'o
i-lun book gets me.
I just love jeongganbo. I truly wish i was more fluent with it.

Happy New Year
P.S. I think Keith Howard had something nice in his older Korean
Instruments book, the Korean one with the red cover published by
Sae-Kwang i believe .... why do i not have that book with me? Gr.....
