OK! Many thanks to you and to Henrik Behrens, who gave me a hint to
google, where I found several links.

Now back to the originial question: Singing all my life out of 'normal'
notes I personally (like Amelie?) see no advantage in shape notes. Maybe
if I was used to them? I know of methods for teaching instruments to
children using colours and so. But I am asking myself (my children
learnt notes the usual way) wether this is really a help and not
something you get addicted to? Will you ever (without major problems,
i.e. with less effort than learning it 'the hard way') get 'free' from
the shapes?

Anyhow. I am not willing to start flames, 'note shape wars' or anything
like that. Just a thought of mine!
