How to not put a jump under a volta

• Jun 26, 2022 - 11:03

Attached is my song.

I would like to add a jump at the end of the volta labeled "2" that starts in measure 36. The jump should go to measure 2.

I read that jumps should not go under voltas. I'm not sure how else to do it? I have looked for examples. I see examples with jumps, but no examples of jumps after voltas.

That volta 2 needs to end with an end repat barline, else the vola 4 after it won't work.
Jumps are generaly taken after all simple repeats (repeat barlines and voltas) are processed, so won't in a volta 2 if there is one for 3 and 4.

I have no idea on how to interpret your volta at m34-35 at all.

Try taking me step be step through your intended roadmap, but this is my best educated guess based on what you've written so far (everything from the ? on is just speculation):
1 - 16, 9 - 15, 17 - 35, 28 - 33, 36 - 38, 2 - (?)16, 9 - 15, 17 - 35, 28 - 33, 39 - end

Also note that currently your m38 and m1 are identical, so you could possibly drop m38 and write a D.C. instead?
