Sustained notes in pinano music using ties

• Jun 7, 2019 - 08:22

I don't think there is direct support for sustained note notation, but I wanted to check before adapting some of the techniques discussed elsewhere that use the symbol pallet to attache open ties. (Gould p72)

There are two symbols I want to employ: the long open tie to the right of the note continuing to the bar end signifying sustain the not for its full value; the short open tie to the right of the note not continuing beyond the next rest, indicating sustain the note beyond its note value.


There is indeed no direct support this, just a number of techniques for "faking" this. The long tie notation is probably best done using invisible grace-notes-after.
