What has finally won me over is how beautiful - and useful - the score sheet is. Here's an example, the current piece I am arranging, click on it to show detail. How good is that!
- Clef notation is great because it gives you note duration. Tab does not normally give you note duration, although some space out the numbers to help, but really you have to know the song you are playing. This presentation overcomes that limitation.
- Clef notation doesn't give you left hand fingering positions. Which is fine for stuff played in the open position, but fingerstyle moves away from the open position a lot. Consider measure 10 - that would require a lot of text footnotes to explain how to do it in clef notation.
- Clef notation is really hard to read when the notes go too far above and below the clef. Tab doesn't have that problem.
Let me know what you think!
