Alright... I need some help with Sharps. Let's say F-Sharp. When it Indicates to play a F-Sharp are all F Notes Sharped on that measure until the end of the measure? Thanks.

Yes

edit: Guy above me, if the key is F sharp, that means you play an F sharp if you see an F natural...

but no, not usually



Ah thank you very much

So if the Key Signature is F#, I play the F# for that Measure. Thanks.

So if it indicates a F# whats not in the key signature, I don't play all F's as F#'s? Thanks.

Actually, even if the sharp is not in the key signature, but is notated, then it holds true for all Fs in that measure, unless there is a natural.

Ah, So I nailed it down yesterday. If it's not in the Key Signature I still play the #'s in that measure, and if there is a Natural it will block out the sharp. If so I got it down, Thanks.

No. If the key signature if F#, what looks like an F natural is an F sharp. If it is another key and an F# is indicated, that F and all Fs after that until the end of the measure are sharped.

This.

If the key signature contains an F#, then ALL F's are played sharp (unless altered with an accidental). They key signature is in place so the music doesn't look as cluttered and to save time from writing out sharps or flats for EVERY non-natural note in the key.

Accidentals stay in effect for one measure or until another accidental comes up within the same measure, for the same note.
