Rests (But not the shoulder kind.)

October 6, 2016 at 07:18 PM · I use midi files for various utility purposes such as transposing practice, etc. and that can be useful.

However, I have become more aware of an odd notation which just doesn't make sense to me.

At the start of the the second verse, there is often a rest(1/16?) which now shifts all remaining notes to the right? What is that supposed to accomplish? The remaining notes can be almost obliterated with ties.
