Pedal markings

• Apr 30, 2023 - 18:51

These pedal markings for each chord change (see attachment) get quite tiresome to read after a while. They feel like visual clutter to me when it's the same for the whole piece. I know I can hide them in MuseScore, but how do I communicate my intent to the player then?

What is common to do here? Add a system text at the beginning to let the player know that pedal should be down during each chord, and up during a chord change? Or is there another way to do it?

Place a couple and then use the word "similie". That should work for a human.

If you want MS to play it, you will have to leave them all.

You can achieve both by adding the similie and leaving the pedal markings and making them invisible (Press "v").
