I am making a computer application for typing numerical / numbered musical notes. I have some question regarding note length line / beam.
- Will it have a same meaning if we place the beam either on top of the note or on the bottom?
- If #1 = yes : In a scores sheet, is it normal to use both of the placement (some part use top beam, some part use bottom beam)? Or is it better to use only 1 rule per scores sheet? (I assume the latter)
Example of scores with bottom note beam (source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numbered_musical_notation) :
UPDATE : Top note beam example (source : syaifulcamp.blogspot.com) :
Ugh, I just realized, is top beam is only used in indonesia? :/
