      Does anyone have tips on how to do upbeat melodies? I’m totally lost…

    • #17220

      I’m doin the leavin 2 and for the upbeats i find the best things to remember are

      1) The beats in each bar are still the same for every bar except the very last bar (number 16) this is the bar yoy take the beat value of the upbeat from

      2) The only other thing that changes is the phrase markings, at the end of each line of notes in the last bar the phrase marking moves in the value of the upbeat

      Say the melody is in 4/4 time and the upbeat is a crotchet
      there will still be 4 beats in every bar but in the very last there will be 3
      the phrase marking at bars 8 and 12 will be in a crotchet so u’ll have 4 crotchet beats but after the third insert the phrase marking,

      Hope this helps
