What are the rules when it comes to how a slur handles tied notes set at the start or end of the legato passage? I think it looks nicer when the tied notes are included in the slur, but I don’t know whether it’s correct.
For example, with the tied notes at the end:
Which is correct: The top staff, with the slur leaving out the tied notes; or the bottom staff, with the slur encompassing the tied notes?
In this second example, the tied notes are before the legato passage:
As above, which is correct, the top or bottom staff?
I’d appreciate any thoughts on this.
