Music Reading Question

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by jimbass55, Jul 30, 2002.

  1. Alright I have bought a book, and I am teaching myself how to read music.(My teacher cheesed on me twice so I figured I would take the $30 a week and buy books and videos and post my questions here)

    Given: If a note is altered by a sharp or a flat, it remains that note for the rest of the measure unless canceled by a natural sign. Correct?

    Question: Does it go back to the natural note on the next measure/bar if there is no natural sign, or does it remain the sharp or flat note?

    I hope I am making sense. Thanks for your help.

    Chris A.:rolleyes:
  3. Thanks. That is what I thought, but sometimes when I try to apply common sense some well studied player comes along and corrects me. I am sure there will be more questions to come. Thanks again.

    sometimes you'll see the natural in the next bar. that's called a courtesy accidental.

    What Ed sed.
  6. Thanks for the info. I am pretty sure I got it and now I am off to page 14 in the book. It will be a long journey, but I seem to retain these things better that way.:D Ed's reply in the other message really cleared things up. Thanks again.
