Chapter 13. Making Sheet Music > The Fretboard and Tablature

The Fretboard and Tablature

For all the guitar players out there, SONAR provides a couple of nice notation-related features just for you. The first one I’ll describe is the Fretboard pane.

The Fretboard Pane

The Fretboard pane, located at the bottom of the Staff view, is both a visual aid and an editing tool. During playback, the Fretboard displays the notes at the current Now time in a selected track as they would be played on a six-string guitar using standard tuning. This makes the Fretboard a cool learning tool when you’re trying to learn to play a new piece of music. It also displays notes when you use the Scrub tool or Step Play feature, which makes it even easier to pick out the fingerings. The color of the notes matches the color of the clip (from the Track view) in which they are stored.
