I'm having trouble in the first frame. For the left hand, I want the chord C# and E to be the full duration of the frame (hence dotted half notes). But I also want to play G# twice, on the second and third beat of the first frame, but not on the first beat.
How do I write this? Noteworthy Composer doesn't seem to like it. I tried tieing things but it didn't work. Is there perhaps a magic way to tie a note to a rest?
BTW, yes this is Noteworthy Composer, but if you can just tell me how to write this in normal sheet music, I'll try to figure it out in my software. I can't remember how this is represented so I'm not even sure what to hunt for in Noteworthy. I really hope I don't hafta add another bar.
EDIT: Solved. The proper way is to put a rest as part of the chord, but since NC doesn't like that, I found this workaround with ties:
Of course once I played that, I realized it wasn't good and removed it in favor of more traditional left-hand. Oh well.
