Using a whole rest vs a tied note in Music
In a song I am working on, there are many times in the piano voice that a whole measure has no note in its treble clef. I can choose to leave the measure's treble clef empty with a whole note rest, OR ... carry the previous measure into the new measure via a tied note. Here is an example:
Note that in measure 2, I have used a whole rest in the treble clef, but in measure 4, I have carried over the note in measure 3 with a tie.
Which in music is the "correct" approach? I have lots of examples in the score to adjust one way or another.
