Help required re: whether to use double barline

Post by Hector Pascal » Tue May 14, 2019 1:19 am

Hi all,

On my woodwind part, the music go along and then gets to a bar above which I have the direction :

D.S. al Coda

Should I put a double bar line at the end of that bar to further emphasise that the player loops back instead of proceeding onwards to the next bar?

Cheers,
Hector.

That's the way I've always seen it done.

Thanks, zuill and mike. I added the double bar line and it looks very good to the eye.
Cheers,
Hector.
