TAIL OF MUSIC NOTES

image
On the stave any note can be written on any line or in any space with the tail drawn upward or downward and it has no effect on the note rather; it places the note properly for sight reading.

In addition, any note above the third/middle line on the stave would have its tail drawn downward; and any note below the middle/third line on the stave would have its tail drawn upward. Moreover, any note placed on the middle/third line would have its tail drawn upward or downward, whichever way it falls should be proper for sight reading. While in a closed score other than the piano where the two parts are sharing the same staff, all the notes on the upper part would be drawn upward and downward for the lower part. For Example:

a. Staff

b. Close Score

c. Piano
