I like Musescore because it can automatically create a tab from notation. Naturally, you might edit the tab since the guitar can play the same note in different places, but it's relatively easy to do. Is that what you are going for? Musescore has a great deal of classical music already notated that you can download, all free.
Hey you are onto something, I further brainstormed on what I'm trying to do and I think I worked out a method.. yes Musescore is like TablEdit only completely open source so I have installed Musescore.
If I familiarize myself with this program I can write any notation of my choice into Musescore and have it displayed in both notation and tab, the only thing stopping me is transposing what is universal "piano range" music into the range of the default open position guitar, however I think I have worked out a method for transposing to the guitars open position range as indicated in the image below.. it would involve simply moving a musical piece from the white keys down or up some octaves until it can be played within the guitars coloured keys range, not reallllly transposing anything is it? just changing octave so that's easy.
In summary I believe that once I familiarize myself with using Musescore and put to practice this transposition method I guess I can have any written notation on my computer and arranged for guitar like I wanted, can anyone spot a flaw in this method? or have we hit the gold mine?
