Re: Best way to notate long(ish) voiced consonant?

Sorry, I read to quickly (as usual). Now I see you wanted to have m in the last measure, not immediately.
I think the first example is perfectly clear even without hyphen and a dot.

Re: Best way to notate long(ish) voiced consonant?

Another is to define it rhythmically, as "doo" to be a grace note with tie and "m" to be the main note. In any case, doo+m creates rhythm, therefore defining it would be good to have. Singers can come with a legal question: how quick will "m" come after "doo"? It would be good to hear what you or ot...

If you work as a music teacher in a class it is a great opportunity to test this!

Re: Comparing text fonts (Operatic Score)

I would try Old Standard as a main font for music in your case, it is also free to use. Nepomuk is another serif font. Serif means simply that you can read it "faster" since the brain takes only parts of the font to "decode" it. On the contrary, sans serif is used for clear perception and informatio...

Re: Comparing text fonts (Operatic Score)

Hello. And welcome to the forum. A very beautiful notated examples, I have enjoyed them. I like more the first example, only because the font in another example is to much personal (stylized, curved...) that it takes to much attention. A music notation is "attentive", in my opinion, so that certain ...

Re: Best way to notate long(ish) voiced consonant?

I had a similar issue, but I am not sure what is the best way to do it.
Maybe superscript doo, or m to be bold.
Another way is to separate m from doom, or to add another m:
doo/m_________
doo-m_________
doom/m________
doom (m__________)

Or just simply as a footer:
doom*_________
(*hold "m")

Re: Composers vs Editors: Another controversial note

I hear (and understand) the main harmony as simple as this chromatic progressive dim7 chord: progression2.jpeg I prefer that solution because it is same pattern throughout systematic, and on the second 16 it falls always the neighbour tones (chord). The finale F maj chord is a simple deceptive caden...

Re: Composers vs Editors: Another controversial note

Sorry for slow response. My feeling is that having C or C# is equally valid. In both cases it is a passing tone, with C# it is more as "dominant to" feeling. The only reason why someone should make it not valid is that the dominant chord (a)+c#+e+g should be only to major or minor chord, which is no...
