Notation Question
February 24, 2017 04:32PM
Hey Guys!. I'm new here. I'm currently studying (1 year so far) Musical Composition at an Institute here in my country, Santiago, Chile.
Well, my question:

I was transcripting by ear this little song (piano) when I came to this...

At bar #7, how would it be the best way to write this down?
((I mean every note inside that bar, not just the chord name. Having in mind that it changes tonality.))

Well, Bb or A#?
I noticed that if I write A# it makes a 4th interval between the previous D (bar #6) and the A#, but as it is a sharp A and a D it sounds like a 3rd interval... BUT if I write it down starting in Bb, it makes more sense as it sounds like a 3rd and it's writen as a 3rd as well.

Which is the right way of writing it? A# or Bb?






Another question; Bar #4 -

At the beggining of bar #4 there clearly appears a C chord... but as the arpeggio goes on and the melody changes, you could say it transforms into an A7/C chord. is it correct writing the whole thing as a C? or is it a C and then A7/C?


Score:

(Probably the chords notation is not correct, sorry, please tell me if something's wrong)


Thanks much for your time.

Bb and the notes are written correctly

C major or C6 if you want to include the melody note as a chord tone. It can't be A7/C as A7 needs C#.
