Need help hitting notes consistently.

So, I can hit a wide range of notes with fairly good tone, but my issue is pitch. I tend to mess up which note I hit. For example, in 4th position playing a D instead of a G. Or playing a high Bb in first instead of an F. Sometimes I don't even realize I'm playing notes too high [usually can tell if it's too low unless it's an F, E or Eb] and end up practicing the wrong notes. I had this issue more this past year because I was first chair in our less-than-spectacular band [we're separated into two bands in my school] and I didn't really have someone to learn off of. I've been trying scales and everything but nothing seems to be working well. This is kind of a big issue for me because I'm basically guaranteed a spot in our better band next year and I want to be on top of my game this time instead of embarrassing myself or relying on someone else. Not to mention I'm joining jazz band...

YCOO - very badly needing English Horns, Violas and Double Basses!!!

Hello everyone.
You may already heard about us. We're the Young Composers' Online Orchestra ("YCOO"). Recently, we've started a new project - we're gonna play Elliot Butler's Drama for Orchestra No. 6.

In the process of preparing the parts for our members, we found out that we don't have any English Horns, Violas and Double Basses!

If you can play one (or more :P) of those instruments, please consider joining us either forever, or for the current project only. You could save a LOT of effort and hope we're all giving in our orchestra.

Have a great day,
Milan Steklý, moderator of the YCOO

A review of page rules.

This page was created for guitar players and any music related for the guitar. Style and genre is not important as long as the music posted is guitar related. However, scores that do include the guitar MUST actually be playable on the guitar or the score will be removed. No offense is intended toward anyone who uses the guitar for composition and tonal purposes only BUT the Everything Guitar page is intended for Guitarist and Guitar Composers who are interested in researching ,sharing, and discovering guitar oriented music that is actually playable on the guitar itself.  If these guidelines are not met the piece will be removed. These rules do NOT apply concerning seemingly impossible virtuoso techniques with proper practice and instruction to accomplish.  These rules apply to guitar pieces or guitar parts within scores that include chord structures legitimately impossible to execute on the instrument. If anyone feels as though their piece has been wrongfully removed due to these guidelines you may resubmit the piece with the fingering necessary to accomplish such techniques.  Using notes within the range of the guitar doesn't make the combinations of those notes or chords playable. Please do not take these rules as a message to not compose for the guitar if you are not a guitarist. DO take this message as an invitation to seek council How to properly notate passages for the guitar if you are not a guitar player.  Thanks again to all the members who support this group.  

Is it possible to add tab to score?

Hello all, this is my first post. 
All i'm asking is if i put a score of a solo nylon acoustic guitar piece in to musecore 3 how do i get musescore to add tab below? I've noticed  many score/tab hybrids have the notes on the thinnest strings are on the tab when playing on the wound strings gives it enough body, is there a way around this automatically rather than having to do it manually? Also, i read of the ability to put straight up tablature in and have musescore add a score, how is this possible?
The score i have is Farewell by Sergio Assad, and i'd like to turn the free tab of Schnee in Istanbul by Carlo Domeniconi in to a tab/score hybrid as found on classclef.
Thanks very much.
