I'm currently notating a song and don't know what's the correct way to write the ending of it.
The song has a pickup measure with a quarter note duration. Because of that, the correct way of finishing it would be to end the song on a measure with only 3 beats.
Sadly the last measure ends like shown in the picture (top example), where I have not enough beats left to compensate the pickup measure.
So my question is, what is the proper way to get around this? Would you just add a complete new measure with only 3 beats like the bottom example in the picture?
