    guys, i'm drawing a blank here with reading a duet...

    1. a note in the upper part is flat, does that same flat carry down to the corresponding note in the low part?

    2. if a note in the lower part reaches the same previous flat note in the upper part, is that note flat as well?

    lemme know if i've confused anyone.

    :dontknow:

    K.I.S.S. - read the key signature, and read your own line. Simple as that! If you don't have the same key sig in both parts, then read a different duet :)

    got it, so ignore the incidentals in the other part?

    what's that stand for?

    Keep It Simple, Stupid. (not as harsh as it sounds). BTW, it's accidental, incidentally.

    rofl!! and here i thought k.i.s.s. was some musical acronym i've yet to learn. oops. oh well; incidental, accidental... leave me alone, i'm coincidentally tired!!! besides, their definitions are practically the same!!!

    thanks guys. i often have that "over thinking" problem.

    Too much of anything is no good for you, even thinking!
