It would surely be easier if the arranger just put 8va and write it an octave lower or 15va in extreme notes..

Indeed it would be, but its very rare for flute music/parts to be written that way... perhaps because if the range of the piece is large, then the flautists would have to read notes on ledger lines below the stave. Which I image very few actually can do! (The lowest note flautists generally ever read being middle C.)

Some one started a topic title "your've got a friend in me" -----had no idea what they meant, but turned out to be a question about a song.

Looking down the list of thread titles today I saw "cricket" and almost underneath that, for a moment, I read "Daily Wisden" biggrin.gif

It might not be off topic, if the topic is what the person has read rather than what was written laugh.gif
