does anybody know of a program like powertab or guitar pro that can transcribe music, but doesn't have the tablature lines below it? in other words, does anyone know of a program that i can write music, but for only the traditional score?

(please be free :-))
Check out my music, if you please.

You can hide the tab on GP anyway, so your just left with the notes.


Your best bet

Notation is useless for guitar and bass. For other instruments it is useful. Why the hell do you want to make it harder to read the music, you are supposed to practice playing guitar, not reading music.

I hope you have 0 aspirations to head to college in a music major with that attitude.

Well, I think it is more important to get good at playing. I would rather spend my time getting better, not learning how to read music. Maybe sometime else I will learn how to read music but not now. I can read music a little.

To the TS: I think you can hide the tabs in Guitar Pro, not sure.

Very good to use. I'm transcribing Whiskey In The Jar - The Pogues on it at the moment and then inputting it into Reason 4 and making a dance track. Oh yeah! It's fully notated and plays back too. It's awesome.

Also in Violin it's hard to transcribe stuff to sheet music and you can play the same note in many positions.
How much people you see saying that notation is useless to violin?
People like you are the ones that give guitar a low esteem in the music world.

For all stringed instruments, a simple finger number on top of the note imply the position to play in.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I really don't know of any programs to do it. But my guitar teacher has been making me do standard, so I just kinda translate it into tablature.

I used to do that to learn the piece, but then try to read it after I became familiar with the structure of the song. If you use tablature right, it can become quite handy, but standard notation is simply the best and isn't so bad once you get used to it.
