I would like to know the best way to go about using Musescore for my situation.
For the past couple of years, each time I fire her up I've basically been winging it.
I would like to have a strategy that I can be confident in.
Here's my situation.
My scores have been consisting of guitar diagrams + lyrics for the most part.
I like to have around 4-6 bars per line usually.
Here's what I have been doing.
Starting with single treble clef.
Entering 4 quarter notes per bar (as Musescore needs notes before I can enter diagrams or lyrics).
Next I enter chord diagrams right through the song and then enter the lyrics.
Recently I have been trying to make a template that I could open so I could shoot out of the starting gate, rather than copy quarter notes for all the bars of the page each time I begin a new song.
After I have my chords and lyrics entered I start adjusting the diagram size and placement.
The chords are always too small and they are way above the staves.
I make my staff notes and lines invisible so I can lower my chord diagrams into the stave position (makes more room for the lyrics).
Then I adjust the lyric size so they can be read easier.
Any suggestions to improve this would be appreciated. :)
