Thread Name: Music Notation Software
Subject: RE: Music Notation Software
Hi All - Have already replied to this once but looks like it's gone for ever.

Great tips from all concerned - I've been struggling to make headway on this subject and have downloaded lots of stuff. In the end I think I have succeeded only in confusing myself, but I'll keep trying.

Some questions and feedback:

- The price of Muse was a pleasant surprise, but got a bit of a shock when I saw the price of Musicator. Looks like I may have to upgrade to Win 95 in order to use Muse - I gather that there is NOT a Win 3.1 Version?

- I paid the bucks for Band In a Box c/w Music Tracks Pro (I may have the second title wrong) but I haven't made much headway. Will be glad to report in due course but I get the impression that it may not be the easiest of notators.

- Has anyone tried MUSIC-G-Tab for printing guitar tabs? I haven't used tablature much for guitar picking, but this program looks interesting.

Happy experimenting. I must admit that I have been spending too much time looking at software and too little time actually playing. Intend to address this imbalance tonight.

Regards John
