Thanks, Kai. I thought about "blue notes," but that is a totally-overworked cliche, so I went with "yellow notes." I have heard notes when I played in the symphony rehearsals which I would have considered yellow. LOL

Morning is so much more cheery with the meadowlark's happy song!

Yep, I had the same thought when I was writing this, Gershon...well, not exactly the same, but I thought of Meadowlark Lemon!
