bTrem(bowed tremolo) – A rapid alternation on a single pitch or chord.
fTrem(fingered tremolo) – A rapid alternation between a pair of notes (or chords or perhaps between a note and a chord) that are (usually) farther apart than a major second.
chordA simultaneous sounding of two or more notes in the same layer *with the same duration*.
noteA single pitched event.
restA non-sounding event found in the source being transcribed.
spaceA placeholder used to fill an incomplete measure, layer, etc. most often so that the combined duration of the events equals the number of beats in the measure.

Remarks

The dots attribute records the number of augmentation dots necessary to represent a non-power-of-two duration. This is usually, but not always, the number of dots displayed. For example, a note with this attribute will result in displayed dots, while a glissando will not.

Constraints

An element with a dots attribute must also have a dur attribute.
