Can someone point me to the correct notation for James Nyoraku Schlefers Shakuhachi Workbook - Daily practice exercises for technical development?
If it has both japanese notation, fingering, and western notation it will be specially nice!!

This thread on the old forum has a link to a font file and documentation derived from the fonts used in James Nyoraku Schlefer's book: http://shakuhachiforum.com/viewtopic.php?id=2798

I wasn't able to get the documentation to open correctly (I only have Word 2003, I tried Openoffice that usually works with .docx files but still didn't get anything readable).

You could always get James' 10 Original Duets book. That has explanation for some of the notes (Eb, E, Ab, Bb, B, D) in the beginning of book, and along with both western and shakuhachi notation in the book and other fingering charts I was able to figure it out. Even though James wrote the duets book to be exercises, they are very interesting compositions.

So none of the notations mentioned earlier in this thread will work?

I don't think so, it's Jin Nyodo. It had me baffled for a while too, my first realization that not all shakuhachi notational systems are the same.

If it is Jin Nyodo school, I guess the introductory book for studying with Ronnie Nyogetsu Seldin is good.
The notation is on the first page of the introductory book.
Being ignorant I just play accordingly and pretends it is the correct one, if it is uncorrect, I will happily not know (Until someone wiser might enlighten me, or my own understanding deepens :-)

BTW: If the moderators belive this is OT from the original thread, put it as a new thread - moderation is good and sets the standard for good behaviour :-)

Yes, I just checked and it looks like that fingering chart works well with James Nyoraku Schlefer's books. There are a few notes on the first page that do not have the western equivalents, Nyoraku's duets book covers some of those, or in his practice book it shouldn't be difficult to figure out the pitches from the context. For anyone unaware, the link to Ronnie Nyogetsu Seldin's chart and book are here: http://www.abstracttools.com/Shakuhachi/Downloading lessons.html

I've got the web-based interactive fingering chart working: http://shakuhachi.atspace.cc/online_finger_chart.html

It seems to work well on Firefox and Chrome. I initially had problems with IE9, it took about a full minute and a half to render the images the first few refreshes. I am working on that.

If you haven't tried the downloadable version, I think you'll like it. I find the transposition feature on it very useful (so I know what pitch should be sounding for a particular fingering on a flute that's not a 1.8).

That Kyotaku notation in two colors is a great solution. It should become the norm.

Hello all,

I just wanted to be clear on the Shakuhachi Society of BC fingering chart. It's just one variation of a Kinko fingering chart. This chart is the same chart as the Kokusai Shakuhachi Kenshukan Chart which was developed by Katsuya Yokoyama with calligraphy by Teruo Furuya. This is one of the styles I studied so I asked permission if I could use this chart for the Shakuhachi Society of BC. This will be changing soon, just to let you know. Please take note of this.

Very best,

Alcvin
