No, it's that \notes is identical to $notes (apart from the syntax) in
that it creates a copy.  So whenever you write \something and do
something with it, whatever you do with it will not affect the original
stuff stored in the Scheme variable something .  Basically the idea is
that you get a copy whenever you reference a variable, but the music
passed around in expressions and from one function to another does not
get copied unless you need more than one version of it.

Ah, that makes sense.  Thanks!
