This is an arranging question. I have a bass part where some sections should be marked "as written" and others where it is player's discretion on playing the written part or play the changes. The sections could be 1-2 measures or 6-8 measures for example.
The question is mostly how to mark the end of an "as written" section. A quick way would be to remove the chords from the "as written" section then resume chords at the end of the section. I seen this done in many charts. I would like to keep the chords in place as context for less experienced players but don't want to end up with a bunch of directives that clutter the score and part.
Suggestions and examples welcomed. Thanks!
