Comment #1 on issue 1060 by tolaythisbodydown: Add Funk-style shape note heads

Carl, I was searching for info on how to add new shape-note styles to Lilypond and found your work on issue #602. Am delighted to see what you accomplished there.

I have a copy of the 25th edition of Funk's book in my hands. I can thus confirm that whole notes are not any wider than half notes but appear just as they do, sans the stem. The horizontal bars on the 'la' head are thicker than the vertical. As for the 'mi' head, which lines are thick vary depending on the direction of the stem. When the stem is up, the SW/NE lines are thick; when the stem is down, the NW/SE lines are

Lastly, I would love to see Walker shapes added to Lilypond. If you are willing, I can send you scans. (To the best of my knowledge, there are four seven-shape systems with continuing traditions: Funk, Aiken, Swan, and Walker. Aiken was first and is the
most popular. I like Walker best.)
