How to create your own mtn dulcimer tab?!
General mountain dulcimer or music discussions
Paula, I'll echo the others here who've recommended TablEdit. It's definitely a program that takes some time to learn, but once learned, it probably prints the best looking tablature of any of the programs out there. I've found from using it a while that it's wise to set up your favorite formats as templates and use them over and over again. Saves lots of setup time. Another thing I usually do is enter a tune in another notation software package capable of exporting as midi (I use NoteWorthy Composer but there are plenty of others available), then I import the midi file into TablEdit.
All that said, you should probably consider the number of tunes for which you want tablature. If it's ten or so you might want to rethink it. Fifty or more, it's probably worth the time and effort. Of course, you might start with a few, find you like the program, and decide to do more.
Take Dusty's advice and download the trial version. Can't hurt, might help.
