What are the parameters?

EDIT: Just found and read them. There don't appear to be tuning restrictions, nor a requirement for it to be playable on a six string instrument.

A PDF of the guidelines can be found here: http://www.canisavem.com/images/2018.09 ... nal.02.pdf
If the link is removed by the mods search for "Musica Canis Avem". The link to the guidelines will be at top.
