strumming guitar chord notation

Postby tomfuller » Sat Oct 27, 2018 2:42 pm

I have sung strumming--folk music style--on an accoustical guitar for many years. I have also written piano and orchestral music on Sibelius for about eight years. I don't know how to write, in musical notation, strumming guitar chords, as backup for singing. Can someone guide me? And...are there templates or loops available anywhere, that would work? I'm on a Mac, OS 10.14 Mohave, and using Sibelius 2018.7 build 2009. Thanks. -Tom in Texas

I use version 7.5, but it's probably the same. I don't know of any loops or templates.
I write out the notes and rhythms to be played and use the Strummer plugin to set the up or down direction of the strum pattern. Should be in the manual.

Thanks. I go to Sibelius plug-ins for guitar, and see five of them, but no Strummer. Can you please send a link? --TnT

In 7.5 the strummer plugin is already installed. Should be the same for you. In 7.5 it's in the plugin list in the Play tab.
