Maximum voices

• Feb 4, 2011 - 12:52

Guitar scores often have more than 4 voices (having 6 strings obviously). How to deal with this in MuseScore ?

Right - meaning a six-note guitar chord needs only a single voice. Even an arpeggio requires only a single voice to notate. Only if the strings are being played with independent rhythms do you need multiple voices. Of course, that *is* common in guitar music, but given you only have five fingers per hand, and the thumb isn't used to the extent of the others from my understanding, there should be very little that can't be notated with four voices on a single staff (and there is always the possibility of using a second staff).
