Notating rests when you're "laying out"


Staff member
If you're wanting to notate a section with rests in 1Chart — to indicate that you're not playing for a portion of a song — you'll want to use the Rhythm Keyboard's "Rhythm Over Spaces" mode. Just tap the green key at top left to toggle from the default "Rhythm Over Chords" mode into Rhythm Over Spaces mode (the key will turn red while you're in this mode).

Check out the Rhythm Placement section of the help documentation for more details!

You can kind of fake it using the parenthesis “no chord” symbol combined with a comment, for example to notate an 8 bar rest section. 231976B8-A416-4674-A0F6-650930ED096D.jpeg
