8va difficulties

  1. The bar following an 8va passage starts with a grace note and its impossible for me to not have the grace note activated unless I shorten the 8va not to include the last note.

Try this:

  • Shorten that last note to half the value, leaving a rest
  • Pull the octave line back to align with the rest
  • Then restore the correct note value

Thank you Mark, I would never have figured it.
