Transposing By Interval
OK, I've been fiddling with turning "The Ballad Of Serenity" into different tabs (Uke and Guitar) and run into some confusing issues.
I've been transposing up and down by interval searching for a combination of easy-to-play, (and playable by the actual instrument, a uke has a much smaller range than a guitar)
I found the "Transpose by Interval" very confusing, as I did not know what the difference between (for example) a major 2nd and a diminished 3rd (still not completely sure, but I did find this table: http://davidbolton.info/articles/musescore_interval_transposition.html )
Because you can't see key (or time signature changes) in tab notation, I ended up copying the results onto a piano staff to see what was going on.
However, even after turning off the double flat/sharp option and setting the key signature to C, I still get the notation showing an E as an Fb.
How do I force the Fb to show as E? Is there in fact a way to show key in the tab? Is there a way to tell musescore to select the most appropriate key for a piece?
And would it be possible to include some details on what a given internal change is intended to do before one does it? If you are music-theory challenged, it's a bit of a mystery.
