Using 2 Bass Cleff

• Apr 14, 2024 - 14:04

Hi everyone. Please I had been searching unsuccessfully for help how to create a stave where I have 2 bass cleff but with different notes as you see on the image inserted. For some reason when I'm using 2 bass cleff linked if I write a note in the lower cleff the same note is duplicated on the upper cleff. Thank you ahead.

A linked staff us used to create two different representations of the same music, typically standard (5 line) notation and (6 string) tab notation for guitar where entering a note in the standard staff puts the same note in the tab staff but as a fret placement on a string.

Depending on what you are trying to do you either need two separate instruments that use bass clef - e.g. bassoon and cello, or you need an instrument that uses two staves - e.g. piano with the default treble clef on the upper stace changed to bass clef.

Read this part of the handbook to understand, and see examples of the different usages:

Thank you for your quick response. I was looking into the link you provided and still don't get it. My image sample is for only piano. That image-staff is from piano class, I really don't know why the teacher is using 2 bass cleff. So what I'm trying to re-write that song using Mosescore and my main difficulty is that I can't write in the lower cleff a half note and in the upper a quarter + dot note, both notes should be at same moment.
