"One flat only means one flat. It is prob. a cautionary accidental."

I'm sorry, but, as stated in my previous posts, this is not always true.

My previous posts are all very specific. Read them and if you still have a question I will be happy to answer it.

No, specify by giving examples in actual music. I have never seen it notated in the manner that you are speaking in your previous comments.

    I was trying to read through one of chopin's etudes. i found that if(say) the key is e minor, even though a g flat is denoted at the beginning of the score where the key signature is denoted, within the score, there is another flat added to g. There were no naturals added to g prior to this note anywhere in the score, so does this signify a double flat?
    Again, if a natural(or any other accidental, for that matter) is used on a note, how long will that note be considered to include that accidental with it, for a whole bar, or for the whole subsequent score?
    I hope i cud get my point across.I'm just a beginner so plz xcuz my ignorance.
So I re-read this post and I am confused. The key of e minor will not have a Gb in the key signature. So my question to you is what is the piece that you are speaking of? Assuming that you are talking about piano music...I found examples of where this happens in the key of Db major, Gb major, and Eb minor (op 10 no 5, op 10 no 6, op 25 no 8, op 25 no 9, and in the Allegretto section of Trios Nouvelles Etudes). In every one of these examples, as I previously posted, they are all cautionary accidentals. Editions of music are sometimes confusing. Some editors put cautionary accidentals in and some do not. Some use () some do not. Sorry that this has been so confusing for you. On another note you are not really a beginning student to piano are you?
