I am trying to convey a bell like sound - where the first chord is held through the measure. But looking at it this way, it almost looks like there are 5 beats in the measure. Any suggestions on making this clearer to the player? Use all quarter notes and slur them together? Put a quarter rest in V1 before the second beat quarter notes?
Thanks for your suggestions.
Edit: just to clear up my question - it isn’t so much about how to do this in dorico (this is my notation as entered), but more about is this the best practice notation-wise to make it clear to pianists reading the chart.
