    Notation question

    Hello my friends

    How can I write a chord that lasts for 3 and a half times in a 4/4 compass?

    Thank you

    I assume you're asking how to notate a chord that sounds for 3 and a half beats in a 4/4 measure?

    FWIW the software I use most, Tabledit (which I'll note is mostly oriented towards tab, and is not in the same league as professional notation software like Finale or Sibelius) notates it as in the first measure below by default...I personally think something like the second option might be more readable, though?

    Hi walter

    I used Notion 3 and tried the second sugestion. It was accepted by the sofware. I didn't tried the first sugestion (with the two aumengtation dots) but I will (but I think it will forward me to the second one).
