(When writing notation for piano)
Scenario: I would like the player to play the chord G (G3, B3, D4, G4), in a "spreaded" way. That is, not hit all keys at once, but start with the bottom G and end with the top G.
One way to notate it would be as an arpeggiated chord, as shown here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Music-arpeggio.svg
Another way would be to notate it using acciaccatura's.
When using music notation software (such as Sibelius), I can hardly notice the difference between the two. However, I suspect that there is more than a subtle difference between the two. Can anyone shed some light?
EDITED: what I'm asking for is the difference between these two bars. If the damper pedal is activated, they both end up sounding exactly the same. Why would I choose one over the other?
