05. Alliance with Seagulls
- yu mode ( 5 6 1 2 3 5 6 ) 2
盟鷗1
Meng Ou
   
This melody, the fifth of the
five surviving from Wusheng Qinpu (1453), is generally said to have been created by the handbook's author/compiler, the Lazy Immortal. However, there is no commentary accompanying the present tablature (the only one with commentary is #3 Xian Shan Yue), and there is evidence that at least some other melodies may have been copied from earlier tablature.4

No further information at present.
