    Just Friends - John Klenner


    I'm stuck with iReal b for Snow Leopard for now—my question is: Multiple Fermatas?

    I want to write a coda in 4/4 that has fermatas on the 1st and 3rd beats of the penultimate measure, then a fermata on 1st beat of last measure. I have no problem doing this, but the Player only recognizes the last fermata…do I have to adjust the measures to make "pseudo-fermatas"?

    As you can see, it looks right, but doesn't work—or am I missing something?

    I don't think the player-feature reacts to (any) fermata in the chart. That sign is used for musician information only.
    The last two bars in your chart count: 1,2,3,4;1,2,3,4;1... (without retard) with and without fermata(s).

    See if this plays closer to what you have in mind:

    Correct, currently it does not. The one you think it is reacting to at the end is just how we program it to sound like a band is finishing the song.

    Default Just Friends condensed for lyrics

    I have done this with quite a few arrangements. In order to fit lyrics you have to condense the chart as much as possible. It is an interesting dilemma when it comes to bars. Three beat bars look best when there is one chord but with two chords do you have to go with four beats . I will use two beats if necessary sometimes.

    Don't post a playlist as the songs in a Realbook if the changes aren't from the book.
    If you do transcribe changes from a book put it in the title RB1, RB2, GGB, Sher, etc
