  1. In regards to what is more comfortable to read, I have been struggling between 2 ways of notating the same 6/8 rhythm. using ties not using ties Which, out of the 2 bars above, is the preferred way to notate such rhythms for the sake of simplicity and quick understanding by the musician being asked to read? --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Also, when writing out a part for a harpist, I read that it is customary to forego writing out the rests unless an intended rest is actually to be played (i.e. the harp is a naturally legato instrument). Out of the two bars below, and with respect to how a harpist would like to see the notation, is either one better than the other? The music outlined by the written bars here is, in fact, legato (no rests), however, I didn't want to break the reading musician's ability to count into a measure using any visible rests (especially for more complicated bars of music than pictured here). rests no rests
