I’m a new Dorico SE user. New to piano as well. I break my daily practice up into 3 parts, 1 is beginner piano theory and practice (currently learning the individual chords of the C Major scale in Melodics. Rhythms 1 and 2 of Pianoforall book 1 and Transcribing/Reading practice with Dorico).
Ran into some issues trying to transcribe bars 4 and 5 of Riders on the Storm (see attachment for image and project file)
Question 1: Bar 4
I can’t seem to make the first note of the group of 1/4 notes be a chord, leaving the others as singles… You can see in my question image, that it automatically made the subsequent notes chords too.
Question 2: Bar 5
It doesn’t seem to want to let me group those two first 1/4 notes + rest. When I enter edit mode, and try to enter the note closer to the first, (based on the little guide lines when entering notes -|–|--|–|--… but it won’t let me, it changes the first note to the 1/8th when I do.
This is made more difficult by the fact I don’t even know the names of these things I’m trying to do… as I am learning to transcribe in order to be able to have the MIDI playback ability to coach me on parts I am having difficulty learning.
Thanks for your help
