    Default Sharp Symphony

    Admin edit: I have removed the text of this post as the next post has the proper format (and removing the first post in a thread removes the whole thread) and merged both threads - Sue

    Hopefully harder than my first puzzle, but maybe not for you awesome puzzlers out there.

    Tune up that orchestra!

    I learnt a little (or should I say relearnt) about sharps in your previous puzzle, pianoman. But now for a symphony - that's a bit jump!

    I'm assuming the first lines show 3x3 grids (like a sharp sign). What you see when you type your post is not always the way it appears, as I've discovered. There are 9 of these 3x3 grids, and five of them contain a 9. Five of them contain a question mark.

    There's a variety of punctuation in the second part.

    I'll have to start tuning up before fiddling.

    The 3x3 grids look like sharp signs to me, pianoman. Is that why this puzzle is called a Sharp Symphony. There are 9 of these 3x3 grids, and five of them contain a 9. Five of them contain a question mark.

    There's a variety of punctuation in the second part.

    Yes, the grids are supposed to be sharp signs...Too bad I can't format the grids to not have underscores in them...

    A symphony would not have 9 sharps, but it could have just one.

    There are 9 different signs in those sharps
    There is a tricky one that is hard to tell if it is an i or an l. having filled the whole grid I would go with the i.

    Now time to tackle the rest of the cipher text.

    Indeed this puzzle is harder than your first one. I have filled out the grid but am clueless on what to do with it or the text.

    The only observation I have, which is pretty obvious, is that

    Do you have 9 different symbols in the first line, anderson?

    Yes, I do.
    After thinking about it more, I have an idea.

    Edit: Darn, I have to go to piano lessons now, this puzzle will have to go on hold for a couple hours
