Several things I am struggling with - Can you help?

• Oct 3, 2021 - 20:58

I have watched videos and everyone makes it look so easy. It has NOT been that easy. Its been "Throwing Computer out of window" Frustrating.. and I am computer person and have played the piano for years.

1 - I am struggling getting the first measure to equal out in the 4/4 time signature. It will not let me import any more notes. So I have a 1/8th rest, three 16th notes, then 4 more 16th notes with 3rd note of the first set and the 1st note of the 2nd set being a tie. then another 1/4 rest. I want to repeat the set of notes after the 2nd rest. I cant! I have moved the arrow over, and it jumps to the next measure.

2 - I then tried to do a copy / paste, but it includes the rest in the front of the notes and the rest behind the notes. I do not want that. I only want the notes. But then I cant paste it behind the 2nd rest. UGH UGH UGH.

3 - I need 4 quarter notes in the base of a 4/4 signature. I am allowed to be 2 quarter notes then a 1/16th note. Nothing more. WHY ??? ?UGH

The first 5 measures of my score are the same, I cant even get the first measure.
I am sure I it is easier than I am making it, but Gracious!

Is one of these more what you are after.


If you need to copy measures one after the other, select the measure and hit "R". Rather then copy and paste.
