[puzzle] Dense page and ties

Post by OCTO »

Both staves are in the bass clef. I have problem here in LH and the upper tie.

Honestly, what you've done is pretty clear to me. I'd only do some (optional) tiny tweaks to fill a bit more whitespace than looks right to me:
  • first image, RH, top tie: move the right end a little closer to the flat
  • second image, both bottom ties: move right ends a little closer to the stem, just a little
Again, those are super nit-picks, but that would make this just a little bit better to my eyes.

I guess you could do something like this:
