Looking for guidelines on modern guitar music notation

Post by FwL » 12 Nov 2019, 20:38

I'm wondering if anybody knows of any resources for notating modern guitar music.

Gould has a chapter on classical guitar notation, but nothing regarding electric guitar techniques, chord symbols, tablature, etc.

Attempting to use Google only results in page after page on how to read basic notation.

I think you can try with these as a starter:
-- Extended Techniques for the Classical Guitar: A Guide for Composers by Robert Allan Lunn
-- The Contemporary Guitar by John Schneider
Freelance Composer. Self-Publisher.
Finale 25.5 • Sibelius 2019 • MuseScore 2+3 • Logic Pro X • Ableton Live 9+10 • Digital Performer 9 /// OS X El Capitan, (side system: Debian 9, Windows 10)

+1. Lunn's "Extended Techniques" is a dissertation; free PDF available at http://robertlunncomposer.com/Extended_ ... Guitar.pdf.
