Can I get some help?

Postby FrigginPaco » Fri Jul 20, 2018 6:20 pm

Hi,

I'm new, but I've appreciated this site and its contributors for a good while now. I have some musical skill so I was trying to write up a song by myself, but... I need some assistance for writing dotted quarter notes... Songs in 3/4 just need a little extra love :D

I appreciate any help, it looks like I'll need to turn it into hotscript too... oh boy...

Many thanks!

If your song is in 3/4 then set the notes per beat to 1/4. This will make a note value of 1 a quarter note. In this case, a dotted quarter is 3/2.

So, C C C C3/2 C3/2 will play 3 quarter notes followed by two dotted quarters.

Oh I see now, I was trying to fiddle with 1.1/1 or something for the values of the note duration... This is much easier! Many thanks!

I even managed to post a rudimentary Danny Boy on the Harp section :)

I just found this, perfect timing since I'm trying to work on a song with the very same issue! :)
