Chapter 13. Making Sheet Music > Dealing with Symbols and Lyrics

Dealing with Symbols and Lyrics

In addition to notes, SONAR lets you add other markings to your notated music, including chord symbols, guitar chord grids, expression marks, and pedal marks. These markings, however, are ornamental in nature; they have nothing to do with the data in your MIDI tracks. They also do not affect your music in any way (although there is one exception, which I’ll explain later).

Essentially, SONAR provides these features so you can create sheet music with a more professional look, but you have to enter the marks manually. The procedures are basically the same as when you’re working with notes. You use the Draw tool to add the markings, and you can select, copy, cut, paste, delete, and move them. To give you an idea of how to utilize the markings, I’ll go through them one at a time.
