I'm 100% sure this is the wrong place to post this, however, I looked around and really had no clue where it would belong, so I went to the most familiar forum to me.

I was wondering if theres some sort of basic music writing software, for free. I pretty much would just like something, so if I find a tab that I like, I can write it up in actual music notation, and print hard copy. I'm just much more comfortable with regular notation, not tabs. I googled it, but I didn't find anything I thought didn't look too shady...... there were several legit looking sites, but they had a cost with them. Sorry for posting in the wrong spot, but I would love some help.

Thanks

Tux guitar and I believe musescore is free as well though I'm not too sure of that.

Edit: Power tab is free as well. Though if you have vista like me, then you're screwed when it comes to that option.

musescore is free, it just looked a little shady to me, but if its not I will check that out first thanks

Why not just print blank sheet music pages and write in the notation yourself?

that was my first idea, I tried it last night, and I discovered that my crappy handwriting carries over to music writing. it just looked awful

Finale Notepad.

Edit: I didn't realize it earlier, but Notepad is a free 30 day trial. So depending on what you're looking for, it could work. Finale is extremely popular for scoring music, and this is the entry level version.

I share this problem, who knew spacing and consistency would be such an issue.

It gets easier after a while. Also, may I suggest using slashes as opposed to balls for all notes not whole or half?

but I like balls ohhh, I had to. Anyways, I suppose that could work, I'm sure with some practice it could work, but a printed out sheet with everything all perfect just looks so much nicer
