    Volume Swell Notation (Electric Guitar)

    How is a note with volume swell notated?

    a) Where it's heard.

    b) Where it's played.

    Playing a note with volume swell via guitar's volume knob : you roll the volume knob off and it's played (these happen before the note rings) then the volume is increased.

    I am not sure there is a standard notation. What about a note (say a half note or whole note to allow the swell time to develop) with a crescendo mark on it? That's how I'd do it on a wind or bowed instrument.
