I am Still having programs
I am still having difficulties with soundfonts.
I downloaded the Guitars Universal 1.4.sf2 which I like a lot more than the acoustic guitar in the default R3Mono_GM.sf3. The problem is I can't get the Guitars Universal 1.4.sf2 to work with the R3Mono_GM.sf3. The banjo and the flute sound like the Guitars Universal 1.4.sf2 soundfont. I have even tried changing their order with the synthesizer to no avail. If I just use the R3Mono_GM.sf3 soundfont the banjo and the flute to my ears sound just fine, however the acoustic guitar does not sound as good as the Guitars Universal 1.4.sf2 soundfont.
What am I doing wrong?
Not being familiar with the Guitars Universal sf2 I'll give some generic info. The mixer lists the sounds by font. So the first flute comes from the first font in the list and the second flute listed comes from the second font and so on. You're probably stopping at the first flute you find. This applies to all sounds of course, not just the flute.
An easier solution might be to use a General Midi SoundFont that includes the guitars. Go to my site, scroll down to the General Midi section and try one that says improved guitars.

I don't have a midi. Will this work without a midi on a laptop with Windows 7 pro?

No need for a midi keyboard but you will need to install it on your computer. Please follow Musescores handbook.
