#beginquote# #beginquote# #beginquote# You have to be sure to notice if it says "DC" or "DS" al Coda. They are basically the same thing, but if you are looking for a return point with a DS you will not find one. Go all the way back to the beginning. Private Music and Theory Instructor Cheyenne, WY "Music is the feeling behind the notes, not the other way around" #endquote# No- Da Capo- from the same Latin root as Cap, or Captain or Capital ( ie: top) is an indication that the piece returns, DC, to the top, or beginning...you will find a Sign, a figured S with a line through it halfway or close to it through the piece, this is DS, and the piece returns to the Sign, then runs to the Coda. #endquote# yeah, Da Capo means to repate. It's often used in Binary Form. And it's symbol is an "X" with two dots, and an "S" like thing going through the middle. #endquote#
