    Hello all,

    my first thread here and I may be in the wrong place - just a quick question:

    If a note has accidental sharp and is tied to same note in next bar but without accidental written is this also the sharpened form of the note?

    Thanks for all help!

    Yes you are right there, it is also sharpened, but subsequent notes in the 2nd bar are natural unless sharpened again. Welcome to tMP!! Look forward to your posting!

    Hi Lady T - and welcome to tMP :hi

    As has been said, your interpretation is absolutely correct.

    Any note that is sharpened (or flattened) in a bar and is tied to a note in the following bar inherits the pitch character of the original note. All subsequent notes in that bar (that are not part of the tie) should be read as per the current key signature.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks so much for that - I thought that but had just blanked on it!

    Loving the site so far - and hope to be here more often now :)
