Pro, but new to musescore questions on fingering

I abhor the use of "c" for the RH "q" finger. "q" is for quattro, pequen~o or men~ique, but the problem with "c" is ambiguity. I need to customize the fingering palette provided in musescore:

loco, I II III IV etc. for positions
timaq for RH fingering

I don't care who else likes it, but that's what I have
been using, and will continue to use.

However, although I won't use it myself, EADGB, which
Villa Lobos used, is superior for string indications
because there are too many numbers in guitar
notation already. When you become used to it,
it is quicker to read with the string letter.

I don't want to use this either, but it should be
available for anyone who might want to put
out a historical bilingual edition. Back in the
day, RH fingering was in the language of
the text, so this was for bilingual editions:

x or +, . .. ... for RH

A very popular piano method of the 19th century
used X1234 instead of 12345 for fingering.

Also, I hope that it is possible to do tab with
notation with nothing but numbers on the
tab, no stems, beams, ties, or slurs, because
they are just clutter when the notes are
present.

I have not even started using musescore,
but it looks like a good prospect as long
as I can customize it.

Also, does the copyright notice appear
in the MIDI output? It should. LilyPond
doesn't do that, last I checked. For shame.

IAC, this is how I start. Can I customize or
not? I don't want to ask developers for features
which already exist.

A Chance to get YOUR Music Played and Heard!

Okay, So I have a concert coming up at the end of the year and I need a solo piece, a duet piece and a trio piece ALL for Flute. Not too hard but not too easy. If they are easy, make them SOUND hard. If your piece is selected, when the piece is played, YOUR name will be announced as the composer, along with the piece's title that you feel is appropriate for it. If I choose the piece and all goes over well, you may have to write and compose a piece for a full band setting for a concert for my concert band. So PLEASE participate! It's a great way to get your name out there and have your music played and finally heard!!
Submit your piece with the title you that have selected (must be original).

The Subtitle must be one of two options:
Option 1 - "Piece for Concert"
Option 2 - "Piece for Contest"
If your piece doesn't have one of the two selected subtitle, it will not be considered.

You must also have the composers name (YOU) and the instrument name (flute for the entrance piece). It may be for solo flute, duet, trio or even a flute quartet.
Due Date for the pieces is: Friday, March 30, 2012! :)
Any questions, feel free to ask! :) Good Luck!
AND make sure you have fun and try your best!! :))

The ultimate musescore songbook

I have just created a group to compile a songbook of songs from Musescore (See group description for more detail, here's the link: http://musescore.com/groups/ultimate_songbook_of_musescore. We need all the people we can get to join, as it 30+ people to really kick start the path to publishing the song book, so it would be great for everybody to join!

Thanks in advance!

Looking For Blues Score

Hi,
I am looking for a score with a 12 bar blues guitar part in it, one that has a STRONG bee-bop /swing feel to it. MAYBE - these aren't quite the right words to describe the feel.

I have tried... but I can't get the score right. I tried straight eight notes... but the "feel" isn't there.

Here is a link to an MP3 with an example of the 'feel' - http://www.kerezyfamily.com/LaMusica/Lookin-4-Blues-Score.html

If anyone has this type of old-skewl simple blues guitar part scored out, I would GREATLY appreciate it. Any key is OK

Thanks!!
Alex
