"Slash" note notation for Jazz bass lines

• Feb 6, 2010 - 19:41

In many Jazz charts the notes for the bass are not written. Instead the chord names are noted and the bass is expected to "improvise" the part on the fly. If a bass part is of a walking bass style it would be noted with 4 slash marks per measure (4/4 time).
Is there a way to create a "Special" note for this purpose?


sure. Select a note , and double click the slash note head in the notehead palette.
Do it for every note in the measure.
Then right click the measure and choose -> properties. Choose Stemless for this measure.
