Wondering how complex a single piece of sheet music can get, and what it looks like. For example, on the guitar, theoretically you could define the following:
- a chord
- bend from another chord
- bend to another chord
- hold for 3 beats (dot)
- wiggle string
I don't have the music software to write the notation at the moment, but a chord might look like:
I'm wondering if you also took into account the following, how complex you can make it look while still being readable and realistic:
- How hard you hit the notes.
- Different sheet music notations for different stringed instruments
- Guitar petal notations.
- Temporary time signature changes.
- Screaming if it is vocals
- Other vocal features.
Those are just some ideas to add to the complexity of the sheet music. But basically I'm wondering how complex sheet music can get when it tries to encode every feature possible.
By "complex" I just mean the visible look of the notation, rather than how hard it is to play. Doesn't matter the instrument, just whatever results in some of the more complex notations you can construct.
