Repeats (with voltas) and DS al Fine jump combined but not working. Help please.
Question: I need some help trying to get this snippet of music to play as originally intended. So far I have been unable to do so. I have tried many variation including splitting measure 7 into two measures (one for repeat 3 and one for repeat 4), experimenting with different barline combinations, and experimenting with different repeat sequencing. I’m stuck. Help please.
See attached file for the PDF snippet, exported from MS4.
This scheme was found in a sheet music copy of Richard Holler’s Abraham, Martin and John – published in a Fake Book. I created this 10 bar ditty to test the sequencing (shorter than the published 34 bars).
Play intro measure 1, then measures 2 through 6, twice.
Play measures 2 through 6 a 3rd time, then measure 7, continuing on to play measures 8 through 10.
Execute D.S. al Fine which should play measures 2 through 6, followed by measure 7, then done.
I can not seem to get this to work as intended. It plays through correctly (I think) through the 3rd pass and gets to the D.S. al Fine then restarts at measure 2 and plays measures 2 through 6, again, as intended. It then plays measure 7 through 10 and stops. It does not stop at the Fine. In other words the intended sequence breaks down in the last pass near the very end of the playing.
Measure 6 Properties: Play Count = 3
Entry sequence: Notes, repeat barlines, Voltas, measure 6 play count check for 3, then Segno, Fine, and D.S. al Fine.
Measure numbers set to each measure.
Added tempo of 250 b.p.m. to speed up the test playings.
