I'm trying to add a percussion staff to a song. I found the Drumref file in samples, but I can't figure out how to make this work in the song. If I copy and paste a measure from the sample file into a standard staff it does not come out as percussion.
I've examined the properties of each note in the sample file and can't see how it changes. Also, staff properties don't show anything. I thought it was in the instrument controls, but that doesn't show any instrument assigned to the staff.
What am I missing?
FYI, I am trying to add the rhythm to the song "Traces" by the Lettermen. I have written parody words for use with a senior citizen group.
Any help is appreciated.
If needed I will upload the "Traces of Age" NWC file.
I am writing an Easter Cantata. I have a script that needs to go above the treble clef. This is what a narrator would read while the instrumental is played before the choir begins singing. It would also be script that would appear above the score in the middle of a particular piece.
