Parenthetical notes

• Jun 22, 2013 - 13:42

Simple question: how do you put parentheses around a note head? (I'm using version 1.3)

Side question: what does parentheses around a note head mean?


You can press Z and drag the parentheses from the palette. Parentheses are used in several ways, to notate an optional note, a ghost note in percussion/drumset etc...

parentheses around a note head usually occur during a repeated section of the music. the parenthesis indicate that the note is played (sung, whatever) the first time but is not played (sung, whatever) the second.
