It is too obvious how to play the phrase that adding extra information will make it clutter, and time consuming.

Perfect, an answer bright as day. Thanks Octo, much appreciated.

Re: Violin Family - String Numbering

This is played by 1-4-0 and it is not needed to be notated. Hi Octo, Ah, I see my first mistake. We are talking about the same "fingering", though I was trying to indicate string, not finger numbers; and that's Roman numerals, I know now. I think the OP meant to write in string numbers (III, II - e...

Violin Family - String Numbering

Hi Forum,

Merry Christmas!

I want to check back with you if this string number notation would work.

The viola-player should play the two D4s, first on the 3rd, then on the 2nd string.

Is this quickly graspable for the players, and if not, how could I make it so?

Thanks and,
Happy Holidays

Any of these should result in a secco attack, varying according to tempo and dynamic. You may choose to add sec., especially when very loud, but the articulation on its own ought to be enough.
Ah, of course, staccato; almost self-explanatory.

Thank you all for the clarifications.

Thank you for your advice.

Could you elaborate on the 'various articulations'? A quick finale/sibelius sample would be deemed most kind.

Thanks

Timpani. Ma secco, per favore.

Hi Forum,

Can somebody tell me, is the plus sign "+" the right way to indicate secco for the Timp. player?

Thanks.

Re: Trombone Partial/Position Indication

Are you referring to the sharp positions, such as :s 2 or officially more idiomatically :s II to play the G above middle C as an alternative to playing it in IV or even in VI? It's seldom necessary to mark these positions, but if there is a G you quite specifically want played in a sharp second pos...

Re: Harp 'quickly mute' indication

I've just spoken to a harp player. She said that in an example such as the one given the player would normally damp at the rests anyway, unless there was insufficient time to do so, in which case there would be no point asking for it. Gould has various things to say about this on pages 364 & 365 in...

Trombone Partial/Position Indication

Hi Forum, No doubt any professional trombonist knows exactly on what partial/position to play a certain note for best legato connections. For recording sessions that live by the budget, though, time/money can be saved when things can be clarified fully in advance. This in mind, could somebody show m...
