Different style of Glissando

• Mar 11, 2018 - 06:33

Hi. This is my first post. I corcerned that how do you do glissando like as in picture? (The Pft. Part) I currently working on transcription of Bartok's Miraculous Mandarin. I struggled at this part.

Note: I just only want to NOTATE; it's okay if it's result sound bad but should be like as in picture.

See (one measure corresponds to a step) : gliss.4'.mscz
Edit: after improvement (the second 32 th must be entered just before the 3th beat: I mistaked the first try with 2/2 time sig)

Pay attention to the rests between the two 32th: you need to have a 8th rest after the first note. Then select with click and Shift +click these two 32th ->
double-click on Middle beam (second symbol) in Beam properties.
Add glissandos (disable playback)
At last, of course, hide the unnecessary rests.


Do you mean those broken beams? Those are not possible in MuseScore, at least not without a lot of trickery.

Edit: and been proven wrong in the same minute. Well, not completely wrong, there is quite some trickery involved ;-)
