My question concerns the appropriate method for entering alternate notes in a score (and how this may be implemented in Musescore- I haven't discovered it in the manual). The situation is where the melody is basically the same from one verse to another of a song, but there are a couple of places where it varies slightly, either to accommodate the lyrics, or just for emphasis, feeling, or variety. Is there a way to represent these small variations, perhaps with smaller-font notes (like grace notes) or with a gray font, so that they can be seen and understood by the musician without the music for the entire verse needing to be repeated and unnecessarily adding pages to the score? It would be nice to show the variations without having them affect the timing or notes of the original verse, both during entry (for later printing of a score) and during playback. Does such a capability exist?
