I've inputted a piece of music and in the second last measure in which the notes are in arpeggio form (C Major chord for guitar, the last three notes of that arpeggio are tied to the chord in the last measure which is a solid chord. The problem is that the chord is struck again instead of tied notes ringing on. Can someone help me?

Thank you very much.

Ted,

Did you, by any chance, use a Smart Shape slur instead of actually tieing the notes?

If I understand your situation correctly, the problem is that Finale can't tie 'around' notes. The tie tries to link the first note to the very next note that appears in that layer. If there's no note of the same pitch there, the tie is drawn, but has no playback effect.

AFAIK, this is a case where you have to notate it one way for looks and another way for playback, please see attached example.

So-called 'Ravel ties' have been requested many times, maybe one of these decades they'll respond.

Ted,

It depends on how you have indicated the arpeggio. From your post, I assume that you have written out the individual notes of the arp.

If you have not written out the arpeggio, you can use the rolled chord indication in the articulation tool and simply tie the notes with speedy entry.

If you have written out the arpeggio, I think that you must continue the ties throughout to the final chord, otherwise the final chord will play. This notation is rather cumbersome, but it is used and the playback works. No doubt there are other ways. ??

Of course you are absolutely correct, Anna. After looking at your example, I remembered that is how I've done it in the past when writing piano solos for my demos. Another one of those geezer gaps, I guess.

I prefer using one layer for notation and another layer (or hidden notes)for playback. Not too much work, looks and sounds OK.
