I am having "ah hahs" about music theory, too. Where did written music begin? Did you know music is written differently in other parts of the world? I tend to think of our written music as originating in Europe after the Renaissance, but I really don't know that. I reckon I have Google in my hand-

Split notes?

Yes, that's another interesting story. And I think the differences between Western music and others come less from notation--although that is different it would be easy to transcribe--and more from others using a different scale with different sound intervals between notes. There is endless trouble "translating" music between the Greek Orthodox Church in Greece (Eastern intervals) and the Greek Orthodox in the U.S. (Western intervals) because here we just can't "hear" or sing those Eastern intervals, they just sound badly out of tune. Even in the West, there are differences: European symphony orchestras tune at a different level than ours. Fascinatin' stuff, huh? Must be fun being a professional musician NOT!

Buses vs busses

To M. Hony,

A bus has always been something to ride in and a buss has always been a kiss. You can ride in a bus and buss in a bus, but you can't bus in a buss.

And if your school taught you otherwise, that teacher never bussed.
