piano 'ohh yeaaaas'

I'm not sure what it is called but I am writing a boogie piano piece and I want it to end up with two long chords but on a real piano you would sort of wiggle your hands so they notes got played load of times a second. I guess I could achieve the same thing just filling a bar with hemi-semi quavers (or faster) but I expect there is a better way.

Expanding on the handbook:

  1. "Input the notes at half the desired final duration;"

You want the tremolo to fill the duration of a half note, so start by entering two quarter note chords - eg. Bflat D for chord 1 and EG for chord 2.

  1. "If a single note, select the first note of the pair; if a chord, select any note from the first chord;"

It's a chord so select any note from the first chord

  1. "Click the desired symbol in the Tremolo palette (double-click in versions prior to 3.4)."
