I would like to ask if it is possible to make an instrument in drumkit that has normal or slash noteheads, that sits higher than position nr 5 (sitting on the staff) but does not have ledger lines. It is customary in bigband notation to have this kind of cue voice, but having it on note G makes it clash with the staff and it does not look very well.
Second question is about rest positioning with slash region and this kind of top voice. The rests are way too high for the rhythm to be easily legible. Is there a system to bring them down? As far as I checked manual rest position does not work in drum notation.
