I have a stupid question from someone who is not a guitar notator. I can play guitar (if I follow written tablature ) but I never notated guitar. Here is my question: How do I get the guitar to have a strumming sound in Musescore? Lowest string to highest string, like you would normally play a guitar. Even bigger question: How would I then notate that strumming sound?
Being a Piano player, that only way I know to do it is to notate 8th (or 16th) note arpeggios on the piano, then convert that to guitar. Is that how you have to do it in Musescore? I was hoping (maybe an empty hope) that there is a "built-in" way of doing this.
On a related question. I initially was writing chords "Am" "Dm", etc on a staff with a guitar instrumentation (not a tablature staff). Oddly, the sound that I hear is piano when the chord plays, not guitar. And, of course, it plays it like a piano (all notes sounding at the same time).
Thanks for any help in this area.
