I have been trying to learn sheet music once again by re-teaching myself by reading pieces of music. Basically I'm using a digital audio work station to place the notes into a piano roll and checking the score to see if they match up with the sheet music, I feel it is an excellent way for learning sheet music. Now the piece of music makes uses of dotted notes, 1/8th dotted especially, this is my problem, when I draw the notes into the piano roll and check the score the notes show up as being tied notes instead of dotted notes, a 1/8th dotted note is simply 3 × 1/16 notes.
Please take a look at the picture below of the sheet music:
As you can see, first we have an 8th note, a 16th note and a dotted eighth note, and then an eighth, afterwards we have 3 16th notes and then a dotted eighth before a final eighth. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Well this is how my score is turning out to look like:
Why are there 11 notes in my score, when there are only 9 notes? I only have 9 notes drawn out and it perfectly fits 1 bar. Also you can see that instead of showing the note as being dotted it's tied? I'm really confused.
