Looking for the most elegant and musically correct way to write this simple song accompaniment on guitar. In all bars the arpeggio should ring until the end of the bar or the next played note. So the problem is what to do with the rest when the arp does not complete a bar. I’ve already hidden the 1/8th note rest, I started out using three voices but then reverted to one voice for simplicity - too many rests to deal with multi-voiced.
I will add the instruction - let ring throughout - to the start of the song. I could use larger note heads and state that all notes are 8th notes, I could simply remove the rests, I could put an instruction to ignore the rests.
