Piano fingering bracket used for two adjacent piano keys played with thumb

• Jul 23, 2020 - 12:10

I remember a few times when I wanted to use an angular bracket, used to annotate that two adjacent piano keys are played with the thumb, but I gave up. Also, I wasn't able to Google anything clever.

You know, an angular bracket next to two adjacent musical notes and next to it there is the number 1 showing fingering. For instance, for playing the 3rd inversion of 7th chord, like C4 D4 F#4 A4 C5 where C4 and D4 are played with the thumb.

I wander what is the best way to do this in MuseScore?

Thank you for the example.

I’ve just found a symbol in the Master Palette called
Multiple notes played by thumb or single finger "<sym>fingeringMultipleNotes</sym>".
(out of breath)

It has only one shape, which is designed for left-side fingering, and to me it looks very small. I don’t want to put fingering on the left because of the accidentals.
