    On behalf of the Men With a Message (MWM) prison braille program,

    one of our transcribers is inquiring about the Integration of strophic songs w/ complex arrangements: Merges syllables and Vocal Introductions.

    Please refer to the questions, braille example and print sheet music (from All You Need Is Love) attached.

    Respectfully Submitted,

    Hi there,

    I agree that in a piano-dominant format, showing the different syllable elision for a 2nd or 3rd verse seems unnecessarily complicated. If you are only doing the vocal part, perhaps it's worth it to show the differences in the verses, though.

    I think your idea of adding "VERSE" and "VERSE ENDS" looks helpful. These pop songs with complicated repeat patterns are tricky enough as it is! I think readers would be thankful for a little extra help navigating.

    (Just noticed that in the pickup measure, you have a half rest instead of a quarter rest!)

    Hope that helps!
