How to make this type of guitar chord diagram

Post by zimeng44 » Thu May 23, 2019 5:16 pm

Hello guys,

I’m working on a pop song chart.

My client asks for a specific style of guitar chord diagram that I can’t find in Sibelius. The standard chord diagram in Sibelius is like this
fullsizeoutput_2dc9.jpeg
fullsizeoutput_2dc9.jpeg (14.47 KiB) Viewed 435 times
in which the bar chord is slurred across the fingerboard,
but my client is asking the bar chord to be like this
fullsizeoutput_2dca.jpeg
fullsizeoutput_2dca.jpeg (17.54 KiB) Viewed 435 times
in which the bar chord is shown with a line across the fingerboard.

Does anyone know how to make this type of chord diagram in Sibelius?

Thank you

Up to 7.5 (my version) this is not possible. You can import chord charts (maybe as an xml). There is software to make your own charts. Google it.
