Part VI: Hidden Magic >  Working with Notes and Lyrics

Chapter 22. Working with Notes and Lyrics

SONAR 3 includes two views that many musicians and songwriters will find essential—the Staff view and the Lyrics view. If you already read music, you may find the Staff view to be the most efficient way to get your ideas down, and if you don't read traditional music notation you'll find it helpful in communicating with musicians who do. Although SONAR won't actually sing your lyrics, it allows you to assign lyrics to notes in the Staff view and display them in a separate Lyrics view as well. To top it all off, you can print out scores, parts, and lead sheets, complete with chord symbols. In this chapter you will learn how to:

  • Enter and edit notes in the Staff view

  • Add expression marks

  • Work with lyrics in the Staff and Lyric views

  • Print parts and scores
