I'm trying to transcribe some part of "A media luz" from this video.
Here it is what I did:
I'm wondering if there is an alternative way to notate the first four notes. Could I use graces notes or would they be inappropriate?
I understand the urge to notate the opening as grace notes, but in fact they're just regular sixteenth notes. Try conducting the first few measures to get a sense of the tempo, then go back and listen to the very beginning. You'll notice that the first four pitches take the span of an entire quarter note, whereas your current notation has them lasting only the span of an eighth note.
