I have working knowledge of the dulcimer, but plan on taking lessons sometime this year or next. Scott Joplin is one of my heroes. That fervor lasted until my parents realized I was having too much fun, a trait they did not appreciate in my musical studies, and stopped my lessons abruptly. I live to play again!

Bethena - A Concert Waltz - Scott Joplin - sheet music for Piano download free in PDF or MIDI
The diagonal line is also sometimes used when two voices converge on one note Your reference to the note s in measures 67 and are easily recognizable to the musician as two notes with two different values in time The direction of the stems dictates which note goes to the music line above and which goes to the music line below. You may already be aware of this: If you click on one colored square for each note on your stem, the notes will be arranged properly on that stem, even if they have different time values. You choose one color for a second voice or up to four voices along the entire length of your staff I'm new to this arranging thing, but am learning as I go along.
Note that there are additional instructions under the "help" button on your arrangement page One thing that you have learned, and I have not, is how to adjust the tempo during a piece of music in this music program I think that your worry about "would this be what Joplin wanted? Allowing yourself to imagine being in the composer's mind is an interesting practice, but trying to figure out a composer's intentions in every measure or every thought frame is fruitless without actually interviewing him The whole thing is called interpretation I am enjoying your work. I do not play piano at all, vocal only.
I've been singing for decades and have no problem sight reading. I do wish I had learned to play piano so that I could have an idea of what fingering is needed for chords, chord progressions, and horizontal runs. Maybe I will try a piano piece some day. Are the continuous "pedal" notations under the staves yours or Joplins? I have found some of my pieces on line that contain piano accompaniment with vocal solo. Then I go ahead and develop my men's voices arrangements off of those.
Bethena - A Concert Waltz - Scott Joplin - 1905
Sometimes I keep the piano accompaniment, sometimes I eliminate it, after I arrange the singer's voices, depending upon the song. Some songs I work on are melody solo only, and I work off of that.
I always give proper credit to composers and lyricists when their names are available. Like you, my work here is for fun, a labor of love It would be so nice to hear one or more of my arrangements performed by a men's chorus some day I am currently in a member men's chorus here in Ft. We do 10 or more performances each year, always to sold out houses.
I would enjoy hearing from you again Sing-cerely, -Don in Davie Ft. I might not respond to all of your questions or comments, here, but I did get that diagonal line in. I tried to do it earlier in the year, but musescore kept kicking the next measure to the stanza below.

After some tinkering, I figured out how to stretch some of the measures so that I could keep that measure on the same stanza and do the diagonal line. Thanks to your comments and those of Clarin Pardo below, I now know how to do that should I ever tackle another piece that has such a line. The pedal notation is as it is on the original score although each symbol terminates with a star-like symbol instead of a line with a 90 degree angle at the end. If you download the piece from here, you'll see that I added some pedal notations and made them invisible to make some portions sound as I thought they should.
Downloading it will also show you what I did to work the tempo adjustments I learned from someone else [and I don't know who, but it was someone here on musescore] to change the tempo and add the tempo speed into the entry box so that if I needed to go back and adjust, I would know what the speed was at that point. Thank you, as well for the mini lesson in voicing and the vote of confidence in my abilities. As you probably read, I truly poured my heart into transcribing this, but my skills are honestly no match for the work of a master like Joplin. We'll see if I try to tackle another. If I do, it'll be the Pineapple Rag.
I have never heard of Scott Joplin before but I'm glad that you did this because now I'm going to listen to his music all the time. You did an amazing job on this. If muse score did this i would recommend making the decrescendo at measure 52 start at measure 49 to make it more gradual.
But as far as I know muse score does not do that. I am very grateful for your comment! I looked at those measures. You may have read in some previous notes here or in my introduction of the piece that this was quite a chore for me I refer to it as a "labor of love". There were spots in this piece when I went to each individual note and adjusted its velocity in order to produce the effect I believe Joplin intended a rather presumptive act on my part, I do admit.
Musescore does a fine job by itself, but in order to make that adjustment as you suggest, I would have to do as I described above, and at this point, I am happy with how it is.

Thank you for the compliment and the suggestion! So few people comment, and that is a shame. This is by far my favorite Joplin piece and was also the inspiration to one of my pieces. You do a fine job of notating it and I love that the careful attention to the dynamics. I have done labors of love in the past. This one truly tested my skills and determination, and I'm sure you read that I have no desire at the moment to take on another.
