Hi, I'm notating a male vocal part that has lots of duplets and quadruplets in a 12/8 piece. So, in essence, the vocal is singing in straight 4/4 time, while the rest of the band is swung. I'm wondering if it would be better to notate the vocal part in 4/4 to avoid all the tuplets, and maybe add a rhythmic cue line to clarify that the other instrumentalists will be playing in 12/8? Here is a snippet of the part: This doesn't change a lot rhythmically, just lots of duplets and quadruplets throughout. Do you think this would be acceptable, or should I change the part to 4/4? By the way, the non-duplet notes in bars 21 and 28 etc would ideally be 16th note duplets, but I notated them as 8th notes to avoid fussy notation.
