Rhythmic Ties

[ padding=”0 20px 0 20px”]A rhythmic tie or just “tie” is a curved line connecting two notes.

This indicates that the duration of the two notes should be added together to create one longer note.

This is used when a note extends from one bar into the next or when connecting the end of a note grouping with the beginning of another grouping.
