In a score I’m writing for the guitar, I’d like to notate 2 bars of the typical “la pompe” quarter note rythm and 2 bars for a riff on the same staff. This would appear in several sections of the music.
The chords are notated on a separate “chord” staff, rythm being as appropriate, but I’d like to avoid creating a score for the chords and the guitar staves, but just one with a single guitar staff, the chords appearing on top staff. That takes 2 pages instead of 4 for the complete tune arrangement.
My first idea was to use slash noteheads on the middle staff line for the quarter notes of " la pompe", and then notate the riff as “normal round” notes.
During playback the slash noteheads on the middle line of the staff are played and don’t reflect the proper pitch … Is there a way to silence them during playback. Of course, I could make those slash notes being chord roots, i.e. not on the middle line, but then the visual aspect of the score is a bit confusing.
The ideal way could be the use of a “silent” or “not to playback” properly for some notes… I tried the muted property of the bottom panel, but that didn’t work … maybe I didn’t understand the meaning of this “muted” property !!
Any suggestion ?
