I'm re-setting an old Male voice song from a book published in 1937.
This song makes great use of triplets, basically in two styles.
The first note of the triplet is tied to the previous note and also to the second note of the triplet
That's shown in bar 1 of the attached file.
I find that confusing and it's not quick to work out the duration of that series of tied notes.
How I've re-set it is shown in bar 2 of the attached where I've replaced the first two triplet quavers by a triplet crotchet.
Example 2 is similar except it's all contained within the triplet. Again, tied quavers in the triplet and I've changed those to a crotchet within the triplet.
The original notation is shown as bar 3 and my version is bar 4 of the attached.
I've had a quick look in Gould's "Behind Bars" but couldn't see any guidance on this topic.
My question.... Which is the correct (or better) notation for this situation, the original or my version, or am I totally wrong to do what I have done?
As always, guidance and comments very welcome.
