I ran into a situation with the shift. I have been placing the shift symbol after the first of the 2 notes as you would with a glissando. In this situation though, the note marked with the shift is after the backwards repeat sign in the continuation of measure 7. Would I then still place the shift after the G half at the beginning of measure 7, or would this confuse the reader with the repeat? Would it be appropriate to move the shift to before the B quarter in the 2<sup>nd</sup> part of measure 7?
2. Another situation I have is an arrow they are using in this book to represent the high or low finger pattern. Do you have any suggestions on how to handle this that doesn’t interrupt the music too much? Often times, the arrows are in conjunction with a finger number.
I would probably put the shift before the B quarter in the second part of measure 7, since that is where the shift happens, and not on the G before it.
I've never actually seen arrows by themselves indicating high and low positions. When I encounter the "hi2" or "lo2" fingering, I add a dot 1 after the finger number for hi and dots 12 after the finger number for lo.
But if the arrow appear by themselves, we can't add the fingering. I would use a word sign "up" or "down" before the note with an arrow.
