Bass Rhythm in this Notation
« on: October 06, 2011, 04:39:01 PM »

I'm wondering what to make of the bass notation in this snippet of En Dro from diatonia.net. (To see the entire sheet: http://www.diatonia.net/home.html > Bretoni button on the left > En dro - Tradizionale PDF.)

I guessing that in measure 1, I should hold the A and a for the entire beat and shorten the G and C, perhaps playing them as staccato? If so, what does measure 4 mean, what with the lack of a vertical line above the E and no vertical above or below the e?

Also, Yann Dour's Volume 2, p 5, names a similar tablature: International system "push / pull". This makes me wonder if there is also a name for the notation used on diatonia.net and perhaps a guide to it's details?

The lines relate to the button number of the melody, not the Fundamental / Bass .  Bar 1 is    Bass/Chord/Bass/Bass  , so you play A Bass,Am chord,G Bass,C Bass for beats 1 2 3 4

There is no noun that can't be verbed

Ah, yes, thanks. I see it now and it's way less complicated than I had imagined. Your explanation also makes sense of the horizontal lines that look like bars. I just noticed that they mirror the bars in the treble line.

Now I wonder why the E and e in the fourth measure lack the vertical line? Does that signify anything? Or could it be an artifact of the TablEdit software, which I believe was used to produce the score?
