I love notation, easpecially going out to go out in a field, write some stuff on staff (with some practice you can transpose your own thoughts quickly) and then go back home and bang it out on a piano, refine it and add orchestration/accompaniment...

when I was learning guitar I did develop my own notation system, sorta like chord chart and tab, but with a different style of numbering, I forget exactly... but I did find it easy to read compared to tab/notation. maybe it wouldn't be useful for other instrumnts

so like with most things some of these "strange" ideas may be useful in practice, but ya gotta go into it with an open mind and also realize some have a higher barrier to entry than others, but the end result could be worth it.
