I could read music tolerably well back when I was a classical guitar student, 25 years ago, but when I quit that in 1982, I forgot everything. By the time I took up the drums in the late '80s, I couldn't read a note—and as a trained-by-ear drummer, it turned out I didn't need to.

But now that my six-year-old daughter is taking piano, at her own insistence, I'm learning it again. (And I have to say that Western musical notation makes a lot more sense on the piano than it does on the guitar.) Today my daughter wrote her first little tune, and we figured out together how to write down the notes so we don't forget it. I went looking for music notation paper templates online.

Once we've written it out cleanly, perhaps we'll try a bizarro arrangement in GarageBand and post the song here for you to listen to.
