Notation is based on exact subdivisions. Music is fluid. Not at all exact. People have been giving you suggestions on how to deal with a problem of your own makeing. Let them help you. No one is attacking your premise. If you let…"

I just had a quick look through this thread and I note the problem and the advice given which I found quite helpful. Because in my life I write a lot of text + vocal music to go with it, I familiarised myself from a very early age with…"
