Hi all,

1. I also disagree with David's statement/opinion that "chords are much more 
common than tremolos". This is certainly true in the pop (e.g., music theatre) 
scores I compose/arrange/engrave, but absolutely false in the classical scores 
I compose/arrange/engrave. Since I do roughly equal amounts of work in each 
"world", I conclude that, in my life at least, chords and tremolos are equally 
common.  :-p

2. I'm sure we could find a way to change the [very useful] tremolo syntax into 
another equally simple form -- i.e., not overloading the colon symbol -- and 
thus be able to implement David's suggestion (or equivalent/improvement) for 
chordmode, if it's useful. For example, tremolo notation could be 
address@hidden or something similar.

> So please, don't change current tremolo easiness.
