Complex measure - how to reproduce

• Aug 15, 2013 - 18:51

This is a measure which is part of a song I need to reproduce.
Here is the measure (the one on the right hand side) :

I am totally at a loss to know what I need to do to reproduce the cross stave notes.
Can anyone help me here .... please ?

As it stands, that measure is incomplete or inaccurate. Should the semi-quaver 'E' that cross-beams up to the Treble Clef not come after the 'B' in the Bass Clef instead of being directly above it and, thus, part of a chord?

I attach my attempt in MuseScore (with explanatory notes).

Yes, ChurchOrganist is right.

  1. Double click on the note head to go into edit mode (shown on the status bar at the bottom right)
  2. Press Ctrl + arrow left or right to move the head OR
  3. Press Alt + arrow left or right to move the head with smaller increments
  4. Press Esc or click away from the note to accept the adjustment - the stem position will then be updated

Hope this helps
