Re: Hairpin left edge vs. accidentals

She also says that the hairpin should end on the right side of the ending note. Strangely enough, her examples show something else: most end on the left side of the noteheads! I think that the ending position of a hairpin can depend on context Gould says (p. 104): "Good practice is to start the hai...

Re: Finale update

All from the version (2014?) where you could open newer files in older Finales there were no big problems with that, until now, I'm told. If you open a v26 file in an older version you seem to risk your articulations being seriously messed up. I don't put any blame on MM for this, it's just that it ...

Re: Finale update

Tremolo should be fixed 10 years ago. I don't think it is a feature. Feature – or one of the long expected bug fixes. I am a bit ambivalent about this version. Me too. What holds me back is the articulation issue when exporting a file from v26 to v25 (if I got it right). It would be easier to decid...

Re: Hairpin left edge vs. accidentals

I think that your reply would be more useful as a general advice, John. I seem to have developed some habits of my own, depending on how I want the music performed. My idiosyncrasies are something like this: About the start of a decrescendo hairpin, I think the 'normal' execution is to let the note ...

Re: Hairpin left edge vs. accidentals

If the three notes stand alone (as a motive), the hairpin could start even a little later, after the first notehead. Possibly it could also end a little earlier, at the beginning of the last notehead.

Re: tied quavers everywhere!

Isn't it wonderful that musical notation is a living thing and open to interpretation?! A further complication is that one must take context into account to interpret all musical symbols... If musical notation were as unambiguous as a fool-proof manual, some of us, at least, would be out of work. O...

Re: tied quavers everywhere!

No problem with that, Schonbergian! It seems difficult to create a new, simple and easily understood symbol that would be significantly more useful than the ten. Even if also the latter could be misunderstood. John suggested the creation of a new symbol for a mild marcato, and going back to letting ...

Re: tied quavers everywhere!

Perhaps the lines in the previous post would look better, or cleaner, without hooks. And possibly less piano-centered. I might actually have seen something similar to this before, but, if so, it has completely slipped my mind where.

Re: tied quavers everywhere!

It seems that no one has yet taken up the challenge to create a new tenuto marking (not on this thread at least). Here's a first, brave attempt, in analogy with pedal markings on the piano: tenuto.jpg The difficult thing would be to have any new symbol generally accepted. Well, this is one try. Plea...

Almost anything seems to be acceptable, as long as it is easily distinguishable from an eighth rest. The reverse eighth rest as a quarter rest was thus doomed from the start.
Just out of curiosity, how come that this strange reverse rest was ever used?
