I’m documenting some songs I’ve written using an application called NoteWorthy Composer which is sort of a poor man’s Sibelius.
I kind of want to minimize the number of times I write the same sequence of notes to save paper but the structure of one song is making that difficult. That song has essentially 3 parts that, for want of better terms I will call verse, bridge1 and bridge2. What I have so far is:
||: verse (“To Coda” symbol after 1st half)
1st,3rd ending - Bridge1 :||
2nd ending - Bridge2 :||
Bridge2 (D C al Coda)
So it’s pretty straight forward for the first three repeats but then it goes straight from Bridge1 (3rd ending) to Bridge2. Then repeat the intro and first half of the verse and head to a short outro and call it a day.
I don’t see a way to keep from writting out bridge2 twice but I’m a bit of a newb at reading/writing music. I learned it 35 years ago but didn’t learn well and haven’t use it much until now.
Anybody know a better way to write this?
