I love the way the g plays the baseline. If you are going to make one of those kinds of g shapes that hardly anyone uses in writing, you can't beat having some fun with it, imo. Perhaps this viewpoint will cause a few haruumphs from the sticklers of some traditional viewpoint, but goading sticklers has to be done now and then.
