SIBELIUS / GUITAR NOTATION SOFTWARE - Avid Technology
There's no faster way to get your ideas into print than with Sibelius Software's G7. Designed by guitarists for guitarists, G7 has a sleek, easy-to-use interface that lets you scan music, download standard MIDI files from the net, enter notes in real- or step-time with MIDI keyboard or guitar synthesizer and then turn it into sheet music and guitar tabulature. Listen and playback with bends, slides and other TAB features. Slow down written solos and learn them note for note. G7 has a virtual fretboard so you can watch the position the note is played in for more accuracy. Compose with your mouse and computer keyboard, then post your songs on the internet at SibeliusMusic.com. There are tons of notes, chord symbols, time signatures, slurs ties and more in the notation library: bend, pre-bend, slide, hammer-on, pull-off, whammy bar scoop/dip/dive bomb and return guitar TABs instantly, creating and playing music. All this and a complete A-Z guide to guitars, techniques and music styles along with audio examples, music and helpful illustrations. G7 also makes a great guitar lab tool for all of those fledgling guitar classes so you can distribute lessons and print them out quickly and easily. Teachers and pros know that Sibelius is the word in notation.
