Very good!

By the way, after reading through the standard notation practice which I posted a link for here viewtopic.php?f=101&t=51621&view=unread#p559706 , it seems that creating three slurs between the chords is not advised, so all the effort for creating these slurs in Lilypond was unnecessary.

Fair enough, although I'm not so convinced. I think the slurs in this case are more effective. One should always be hesitant to go against the rules, but the rules are not their to be dogmatic either, they are guidelines. The goal is whatever is the best communication.

I've been using Musesore mostly. I have Guitar Pro as well and it's still a better tab editor but Musescore is better at everything else and closing the tab gap quickly.
