"As we try to make clear, the Learning Manual is intentionally not
built for random access.  The Notation Reference *is* built for random

However it frequently shows up in google search results out of order
and the way it is written mean that these pages often don't make
sense. Just including a note at the top of all of the pages "this is
the learning manual and is intended to be read start to finish" would
help clarify that.

The absolute fixed set that is relevant to all users is probably
smaller than expected as it depends heavily on the application. To
give an example, I'm not interested in creating multiple staff
arrangements as it isn't relevant to a monophonic instrument. It is
possible to write in a way that allows users to skip things they are
not interested in by converting the structure into a graph instead of
a linier sequence. Pages then have a 'dependency graph', a list of
things at the top that the reader needs to know. "Note, you need to
understand the following first: ...". This kind of structure also makes it
easy to go back and fill in gaps if they become relevant to someone in
the future.

"I don't see us doing away with the expectation of beginners reading
the Learning Manual, but as Kieren said, if you'd like to contribute
links that you think would help your understanding, we'd be happy to
accept your contributions."

I already have more on my plate than I'm able to handle sensibly so I
cannot directly make edits, however I am willing to make constructive
criticism if I see a problem.
