Does anyone know of any decent, free notation software (not tab based)?
I'm currently using powertab, but its a pain when i'm trying to compose stuff as i have to work out the note on the guitar to enter it. I've also got cubase but the score editor in that isn't good.

Thanks,

Not free.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

^ can you enter music onto the staff with it?

I was just looking at some of this software: http://www.myriad-online.com/en/index.htm

I'm guessing that you probably want a program that can play back the scores for you.

However, on the off chance that you just want to make good-looking sheet music for free, I've heard good things about Lilypond

That looks good, but i'm having trouble installing it on Vista x64.

However, Harmony Assistant looks even better imo. Its a free demo anyway so i'll have to see if i like it.

The band instructor at my school uses Finale Notepad. I heard it can change the key of the song you put in at the click of a button. It sounds really cool.

metal4all, Finale Notepad is the free version of Finale. Finale's the epic one that can change keys like that, while Finale Notepad is pretty basic.
