I've been playing the piano on and off for about ten years - started with lessons, then just played what I wanted later on (so I suspect that there are huge gaps in my musical knowledge). I started a piece a few days ago, but I've never seen a bar like this, and I'm rather stumped on what it's supposed to represent.
Obviously, there are those six semi-breves, but I have no idea what those thick lines are supposed to represent. There's no indication that the bar is supposed to be played by another instrument (although it is a possibility - it's taken from a musical score).
So yeah - I don't know. Any help here would be hot.
No no, that's absolutely fine - I completely understand!Gill the Piano wrote:You just fill the bar up alternating those notes for 4 beats...like an old fashioned police siren! I'd do it on the quavers, so both hands play the 2 note chords on the beat, and the twqo 'solo' notes on the off beat. TWO ONE, TWO ONE, TWO ONE, TWO ONE. Like a slow tremolo. I'm sure someone will be able to explain it better than me, but it'll do till someone competent comes along!
Thanks very much, folks! I can finally get on with the piece.
