Complex rhythms in sheet music

Post by kentaku_sama on Thu Mar 12, 2009 3:11 pm

Well as I've been practicing arranging sheet music by ear, I've noticed that most times, the rhytms get complexed. Like too many short rests. Is it ok to be complexed. I try but getting it simple probably will just take practice I don't know.

Well, some sheets are really complex, with lots of 32rests ect in between 16notes or 8ths ect and its harder to learn those pieces, but usually one dont meet this problem before you hit like grade 7/9 pieces +
Some exceptions of course, but.. Yeah, its okay to be complex as long as you Can do it Correct Smile If its a mess then you would have taken as we say in Norway: Water over your head Smile "Vann over hodet"
But, with executing comes experience and it will get easier and easier Smile

I wouldnt have managed to write down the notes to my Silver Bullet Rag without a notation-prog. At least not in the time I used. I guess you do the same? Then its at least a lot easier to avoid mistakes, cause you can hear if its wrong or not Smile

Like Finale Notepad

Wrong! Notepad is no longer free. It's $50.00!!

Someday I want to get Sebelius First. It's no that expensive.

I used Note worthy composer.
