I believe it's complete. Unless there are any technical errors in pages 2 and 3, I think it's finished until future notice.

Measure 33 right hand, a leap of two octaves + third, sticks out a bit. If a vocalist, which I am only using as an example in this piano piece, was to sing this 17th leap, wouldn't it be a bit uncomfortable?
Wouldn't a pianist feel similar discomfort playing this huge leap of 17th?

The RH inner voices in measure 38 still only have three beats. If you mean the sound to be continuous, then the quarter note chord on beat two needs to be a half note.

I mentioned this before but you didn't respond. Did you see my earlier comment?

I see you've changed measure 12 to use a half note A on beat 1. Excellent: that makes the measure and your intent for it very easy to read. It's much clearer than a "let vibrate" would have been.

Haha... go to your piano and try it at around 108bpm. It's very easy, trust me.

I didn't see your comment, my bad. I don't know what to do about measure 38. I can't put a rest in between beat 3 of voice 2 to give it 4 beats because if I did it would mess up the ties, no?




And silly me-- I went and played this piece at my piano today for the first time since I started working on this score and it is definitely NOT the last revision I will be making. Sorry. lol

I too like Joel, but I still think his leaps are fairly huge, gigantic to be honest.

It is what it is, and it can't be changed. smile

If you simply cannot make the jump (which you should be able to with a little practice), simply take the Bb with your left hand, making an octave. Your right hand will have more time.

This goes back to our earlier discussion of ties. You restated the rules about ties correctly, previously: to have a tie the notes have to be contiguous.

If you have a rest on beat 3, that means you don't want the notes to be played again on beat 4. It would be, in the inner voices: beat 1, silence. Beat 2, play. Beat 3, silence. Beat 4, play.

If you don't want the notes to be played again but rather held all the way through, then you need to make the note on beat 2 to be a half note, so it will be held through beat 3 and be able to be tied to beat 4.
