I'm writing a song as a score for piano and vocal. The verses begin with a pickup note on 4. So, after the chorus I end on 4 and then pickup up into the next verse with a repeat sign.
The question is: Where do I write the pickup notes and lyrics after the chorus?
Writing the pickup to the next verse after the chorus and right before the repeat would make sense, but that is really awkward, since you have to go from there back to the beginning (FYI, there are 5 verses). Not very easy on the eyes. I'm just wondering if there is a standard approach to this.
