Newbie-Take Score and add guitar tab

• Dec 5, 2020 - 23:27

I have a pdf music score imported into MS3. I have gone to the "instruments" and added a guitar staff and then added a linked staff but the tab always appears blank. I've read other threads, looked and videos and am still stumped. Any help would be appreciated. I added the pdf file below, I have it in the converted format on MS3.

You didn't add a linked staff. I'll go through the process step by step so you can find where you are going wrong.

Press i (or use the menu) to open the instruments dialog
Select staff 1 under the guitar
Click "Add linked staff"
To the right of "Staff 2" that will be added there is "Standard" in a gray dropdown. Click that and select an appropriate tab staff
Click OK to accept the changes (pressing enter does not default to OK and esc will cancel your changes).

If you need more info on which tablature staff to select, see
