Here is an image of the notes in question, I've copied the specific part of the sheet music that is confusing me and made it in Illustrator because musicScore and NoteFlight are more headache than they are worth so apologies that it's a bit off.
It's 4/4 and Treble clef
E,D played together as a second. The E is 1/4 note and the D appears to be a whole note. Thats not too diffcult, but what flips the script is that the D is used again in the same bar!?
How does this work? If the first D is played to the count of 4, how can anymore D notes fit in that with out playing 2 seperate D notes? and if that's the case how can I play the first D note for 4 beats?
A similar thing happens in the second bar with the middle C.
So the question is how long do you play the first D in the first bar and the first middle C in the second bar?
The music is To the Stars from DragonHeart.
