Is there a rest symbol that means "rest until the end of this measure"?
e.g. I've put a 16th note in the beginning of the measure and I don't want to bother calculating duration for the remaining rests. Is there some symbol I can use to mean just don't play anything until the end of the rest?
The motivation behind this is twofold:
- Sometimes the remaining rests make the measure difficult to read. A beginner musician might struggle to read it.
- It saves the author the time needed to calculate the remaining rests. For a 4/4 time signature it might be straightforward but depending on the time signature of the score it might be challenging to calculate the remaining rests.
Please correct me if I'm missing something.
