another kind of software you can try (free)

look up musescore. get 1.2 if you're windows, 1.1 if you're a mac. they're working on 2.0 and this one will support polyrythyms and hopefully get rid of the reliability problems. so for now save often. used this is school for music theory and thought id share with you guys as i find it very useful. ...

Re: polyrythym (and poly meter)

it appears when i ask for advice i seem to confuse those trying to answer. my bad what i was saying is i get switching meters, its things like odd meters (5/4, 7/8, 13/8, etc), poly rythyms (triplets over eights, 4's over 5's, etc), poly meter's (3/4 and 4/4 combined) that im having trouble writing ...

Re: polyrythym (and poly meter)

polyrythym (and poly meter)

Re: Finally getting a tube amp

i have a peavey classic that i like, but you'll have to swap out the speaker to get a good sound, or just get a head with a different cabinet. i have a cannabis rex speaker in mine, and it's really smooth and warm with good breakup, but i've heard celestion greenbacks or patriots are also good. tot...

Re: A question for the guitar teachers at GN

as far as being a teacher, you've either got it, or you dont. look at your high school teachers. there are good ones and bad ones yet they all went to school to learn how to teach.

And I respectfully disagree with Derek who said more music is available in TAB than in Notation, because the opposite is true. ...
