Guitar notation

Postby claybobay » Tue Aug 07, 2018 1:17 am

I need some help with some specific guitar notation options. I need to be able to make a chart for chord inversions that is similar to the picture below, where the different inversions are shaded on the fretboard, and the notes and finger numbers are inside the frets. I also need to make a scale diagram that just shows one string, like the second attached picture. How can I come close to these in Sibelius? Thanks!

It's not possible to make a page that looks like your first image, within Sibelius. You can make each diagram and save them as a graphic and create the page in a word processor. Read through the manual on guitar notation. You can create a two line score, first line guitar notation, second line tab. Write the notation part, copy and paste it into the tab. You can change the fingering from there. Export as a graphic. In a picture editor (Paint will do) chop up the music as you need it. Import parts into a word processor and place as needed, along with text.
I'm a guitar player and your second image makes little sense to me. I'd rather see all six strings.
