I have a guitar ensemble that uses ‘golpes’ - taps on the wood of the guitar. I cannot find a way of having a true sound, but I really don’t want a note to come out (I tried used muted slash note-heads but they still sound).
I have a somewhat tedious work around where I can add a f on a different part, drag the sign to the correct place on the score in engrave mode.
Then I input pppp on the score for the golpes and turn the colour to 0% opacity so it disappears.
I don’t mind if the part plays back oddly!
Attached the work in progress.
Perhaps there is a much simpler way of silencing the notes - or even having a true ‘tap’.
