Avoid dead notes

• Jul 6, 2020 - 14:01

If you are a programmer, you know dead code. But do dead notes exist as well. They do. I will give you a comoposition, with jumps and you will find that the notes in bar 5 will never be played. A picture displays this even better.

Avoid this kind of composition as dead notes are even worse than dead code.

It looks to me that you have set that up to not play.

The DS is before that bar and the to coda as well, so the bar is never involved.
