Guitar as Transposing instrument
I often play guitar tuned flat 1 semitone. I want to read standard notes on my scores, not concert notes - that is, I want a D on the score even though I will play a D flat. I also want MuseScore to play a D flat where I notated a D.
So, I follow this steps in MuseScore 3.2.3
1) create a new score, select "General | Choose Instruments" as template; add an Electric Guitar, hit finish
2) Ensure "Concert Pitch" is turned off. This means the [Concert Pitch] tool botton looks like in the picture, right???
3) enter some note
4) right-click on the staff, select Staff/Part properties, in "Transpose written pitches to sound" set 0 octaves and "1 - Minor Second" Down, then hit OK. Here's what I get:
5) So, I repeat the whole procedure but with the [Concert Pitch] button in the other state (maybe it's me, I don't understand User Interfaces), and this time after step 4 the notes are shown unchanged and play untransposed.
Can someone please point me to the right direction to achieve my goal...??? Thanks!
