1st and 2nd beginnings
We all know about 1st and 2nd endings, but 1st and 2nd beginnings are also common, at least in my music. Here's an example to show what I mean. I'd like to get some opinions.
Line 1 shows the usual 1st and 2nd endings. Line 2 shows a repeated section in which the beginning is changed instead of the ending. Notice the similarity in structure and syntax. Notice also that line 2 shows the structure clearly. I have never seen this notation used anywhere, and I can't get Musescore to play it back as intended.
Line 3 is a nonideal emulation of line 2. It uses standard notation and Musescore plays it back correctly, but it obscures the repeat structure. It seems like a crude workaround.
Line 4 shows the intended result.
What do you think? Should line 2 (with 1st and 2nd beginnings) be the norm? Should Musescore play it back as intended? This has been discussed previously here: https://musescore.org/en/node/91566 , but the concept was not completely developed.
