User defined TABs needed
over a year ago I switched from Lilypond/Frescobaldi to MuseScore. In Lilybond I could define custom TABs which allow some rather uncommon properties, eg.:
- individual number of strings: I used 9, 12 and 15 strings in a TAB
- individual tunings: the strings are not tuned in order from a deepest to a highest string
With the help of these TABs I could easily notate Koyabu / Chapman Stick or Kalimba compositions. For example, a Kalimba may have 5, 7, 9, 11, 15 or more tins (think of a "tin" as a string), a Chapman Stick may have 10 or 12 not consecuted strings and each of those can have different tunings.
So, dependend on the tuning, it is much, much easier to notate in a TAB because it makes doubtlessly clear what and where to tab, grab or plug a string (or a "tin" as far as the TAB refers to a Kalimba).
My question is: Is there a way to define custom TAB string numbers and non-conscutive string tunings with MuseScore?
Attached are screen shots of how that looks for Kalimbas and Koyabu in Lilypond/Frescobaldi. I offer to post the Lilypond source code of these examples also it that may be of help.
Thanks in advance vor any useful hint,
