More handholding for complex grace notes

Thanks @MarcLarcher for recent help with complex grace note fakery. Most appreciated. Just when I thought I had understood your example I hit this one today and it has me stumped once more.


I’m not expecting these to be actual grace notes. But any fancy tuplets I try don’t work. And of course you can out nested tuplets inside the 9:8 and 7:8 that would extend past the tuplet bracket.

Hi! I understand you’re in trouble : I cannot figure out what this 7:8 means. I can tweak thing with nested tuplets when I understand the source. Just wondering whether it’s clear for the composer, or if he/she is expecting the performer to finish the job…

I think the latter. I’ll get him to rewrite. Ah, my daily struggles.
