Notation question

• Nov 14, 2022 - 17:28

Not strictly a MuseScore question, but does anyone know what the squiggly inverted V between the Bs on beats one at two means? I have searched and can't find this notation described anywhere. MuseScore doesn't have any symbol for this either.

This is from the bari sax part of Hay Burner (Basie/Nestico). I can't really hear anything conclusive on the recording.

My guess is it indicates a kind of bend, like bending the pitch up and back down just before playing the note on beat 2. If you create a staff text, press "F2" to open the Special Characters palette, then click the "Music Symbols" tab, then click "Brass techniques", you'll see some symbols you could use to create this.
