Finale Notation Converter: J azz chords shown in various notations

C#m9
*** In Isomorph, the noteheads should actually be circular.
* In Twinline, chord notes a minor third or less apart appear on opposite sides of stem; or, if necessary, on a subsidiary stem (not shown).

** In the two Keller systems, notes are placed on the right of the stem except for the lower of any notes a 2nd apart.
Notice that with a 6-6 notehead coloring, the same chord appears identical in all transpositions (or as a black-and-white
negative of the original, as seen on the next page). This is most easily seen above in 'I somorph' and '6-6 Express Stave'.
(Some systems, such as Klavar and I somorph, enforce notehead placement on a specific side of the stem. I n the case of
I somorph, this feature helps reinforce visual similarity in different transpositions.)
