Well you can skip the 1 if you like but it's not going to go away, it's
still there in the music.
I don't see that you need to mark it if you don't feel like it - even
ignoring it and standing there is still an expression.

And music (as in songs, tunes etc) starts on other beats, 1/2, 1/4 beats etc
than the 1 all the time.
Or do you mean SKIP the 1 ? I guess that would involve syncope !!
Oh this is too much, I'm off.
Thanks, Mel (nz)
