Just a quick question on the sheet music on A Nice Quiet Day #2864887

Hello there, this is my first post on Piano World, so apologises if I post in the wrong forum. I have a quick question on the sheet music, on the song A Nice Quiet Day, sung by Gus Elen. On the first bar, there is an E sharp, which would lead to an F. However in the key signature (in G major) means that the F would be sharp. So, sorry if this seems like a stupid question. But would that lead to that E sharp moving up a tone to F sharp? Or just a semitone to F? I'm guessing the former. Your help will be appreciated. Thank you.

E# moving to F#. Could not be clearer.

BTW E# to F# is a semitone. The E# moves up a semitone to the F#

From E sharp a semitone to F wouldn't work because E sharp is the same tone as F.

I think by "moving up" the OP means to ask whether the E# in the score is to be played as F or F#. In essence, whether the F that results from sharping the E is further affected by the sharp in the key signature (which it isn't). It's not moving in the sense of the interval following the E# in the musical phrase.

Thanks for the help everyone. So my predictions were right then. Also apologises on that mistake on tones and semi tones. Got E sharp confused with E flat. So it moves a semi tone to F sharp now. That makes sense. Thanks for all the help.
