Baroque guitar (early music > plucked strings

• Sep 26, 2023 - 16:31

Hello, first of all, sorry if this is not the right forum for this subjet.
I was scrolling through the early music plucked strings sections (lute et al.) and I thought that it would be great to be able to write for 5 course baroque guitar. Since the baroque guitar tablature is rather complex I offer myself to help. I don't have any knowledge of programming, but I can asses in the features needed. For example, the functionality of writting a capital letter as a chord into the tablature for the value required and the possibility of adding normal ciphers to this chords in a second layer.
Maybe baroque guitar tablature is not as much in demand as 'classic' lute tablature, but it would make every baroque guitarrist happy. As for myself, I have typeset this kind of tablature for a number of books and other printed editions, using text edition to insert the required 'alfabeto' characters, and it is such a hard task which could be much more simple if Musescore had the avaliability.
Any suggestions?
Best regards
Francisco Valdivia


"I don't have any knowledge of programming"
It's a pity!
To get started, you need to submit a feature request on GitHub, providing examples (images of pages in the baroque guitar repertoire) and a MuseScore file (if you have one) containing the essential features you're looking for. Here:
NB: I am interested too, baroque guitare player also...
