Measure Styles

Our cowbell part also shows the use of a one-bar repeat symbol. This and similar repeats and multimeasure rests are represented using the measure-style element. The music in the second bar should be specified just as in the first bar (four notes with display-step E, display-octave 4, and instrument P2-X1).

At the start of the bar, we indicate the beginning of the one-measure repeat style:

    <measure number="2">
      <attributes>
        <measure-style>
          <measure-repeat type="start">1</measure-repeat>
        </measure-style>
      </attributes>

clear

Further details about the measure-style element can be found in the attributes.mod file.
