hopefully i can attach a screenshot here... I am buried under the complexity of displaying piano notes. (hmm, thanks editor guy for including the screenshot in the message. but it's not quite hires enough so link is http://pianocheetah.com/etc/pianocheetah.png )
See how the white notes of the piano are wide at the top (as they are on piano). I need them to have tails the same width as black notes. because, musically, they're the same "width". So see how all the white notes look like "dig dug" (not sure if you're old enough to have played that video game). They lean left or right depending on the hand that plays em. And they're positioned as they are on the piano keyboard. But it kinda makes them look strange and freaky looking. Anybody got a little artistic pizazz that can help me make these things look better? Somethin curvy maybe? examples or ideas welcome.
