I am working on a tune which is a standard AABA jazz format. I want to add a 4 bar vamp as a tag or coda ending after the form has repeated 12 times. The 4 bars come in on bar 7 of the last 8 (a type of second ending) and are to repeat 12 times and then end with a 2-4 bar ending.

I am having trouble making that work correctly using a tag ending since there is no provision for the tag to repeat. Plus, a second ending of the tag itself is cuasing me grief. I am experimenting with NOT using the 'number of choruses' button and 'hard coding' the repeats but that seems like it may cause other issues...

Any suggestions?
much thanx,

Why not just make the TAG ending 48 bars long?
