I am a Brazilian 7-string-classical-guitar-player and I always wrote for this specific instrument, its same thing as the 6 string classical guitar, but with one more bass string (the tune is B1), I don't know how to change de instruments list and I always have to change a 6-string guitar staff and tab to a 7-string one. Anyone can help me to make this programming change? I don't know how to programming.

the specifications are:
Name: 7 Strings Classical Guitar
1º string - E4
2º string - B3
3º string - G3
4º string - D3
5º string - A2
6º string - E2
7º string - B1
19 frets
you can use de the Nylon String guitar MIDI as the sound
It's wrote in a treble clef 8vb as a regular 6 string classical guitar

There is one more request, I always wrote to a Brazilian instrument called "Cavaquinho" and a want to add this one to. The specifications are:
Name: Cavaquinho (4-strings guitar)
1º string - D5
2º string - B4
3º string - G4
4º string - D4
19 frets
you can use de the Steel String guitar MIDI as the sound
It's wrote in a standard treble clef

Thanks everyone! =)


Comments

To not further clutter the dialog with more and more tablature presets, I've now changed the code to not show those that need more strings than the instrument actually has set up (as non-open)

Status (old) patch (code needs review) fixed
Status fixed

Fixed in branch master, commit 18b86cf23a

Fix #271103: Add 7-string Guitar and Cavaquinho (4-string Guitar)

also tablature for both, the former needs a 7-string tablature type, so
appended that, also inserted missing 5-string types to the StaffTypes
enum and appended a 8-string tablature, as GuitarPro has that too.

Don't show presets for more strings than the instrument is set up for

esp. counting only fretted strings, i.e. non-open strings
