I know that 3/4 is strong-weak-weak. I've also heard that when it comes to rests, if I have a quarter note on 1, I should then have two quarter rests rather than a half rest.
But how about the opposite? Is this ok?
Or should it instead be tied quarters for beats 2 and 3?
I have a score where these notes are basically echoing an attack on 1 in another staff, a few measures in a row. I think it would look messier if it were tied quarters instead, but I also want to do the right thing.
(I don't generally tie across 2 and 3 in 4/4, since 3 is a strong beat; that case is more obvious.)
