Hey everyone. I've been getting into reading music and a lot of people don't have the opportunity to sit down and get a program that makes musical notation, so.. I've devised a way to 'tab out' sheet music!

The 'sheet music' below is for my song I'm writing called Tim Burton's Tribute and is in the style of the song, Making Christmas, from the film, Nightmare Before Christmas.


4/4 (Common Time)
tempo = 170

Tim Burton's Tribute

I write songs.
YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THEM

none

So basically what you did there is label the notes on the stave... which is what learners do anyway (at least I did when I was learning).

Don't take that as me being a dick.. this is all that it looks like
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

I did label the notes. However, that's not what it's about. I made this so that people who read sheet music (and don't have access to a program or paper) can read their sheet music.
