I'm notating a drum beat in Finale that I worked on at first using a piano roll. Below is a screenshot of the piano roll containing the beat's pattern.
From bottom to top the rows containing notes correspond to the kick, snare and ride cymbal. Here's how I notated it on finale:
I played the score on Finale and it sounded correct, but I have two questions. First, for some reason, Finale didn't let me write that quarter-note rest for the kick at the end of the second measure unless I disabled the "check for extra notes" option in the configuration for the note entry tool, suggesting that maybe I was overfilling the bar. I went through the durations, but I couldn't find a mistake. So am I really overfilling the bar or is this just Finalle being difficult?
Secondly, even if I am notating this correctly, I'm wondering if that 8th rest followed by a 16th rest is not too confusing. Is there a way I could write this more clearly?
