It looks like that TuxGuitar fails to set the proper clef. Just find the music in the lilypond file and put \clef "G_8" in front of it. That will do the trick. Explanation: As Tom_C correctly points out, guitar is written in treble clef but one octave higher than it actually sounds. TuxGuitar apparently just sets a treble clef (or no clef at all, ...

Understanding standard tuning Standard tuning is : E5 B4 G4 D4 A3 E3 First you have to understand how note (or pitch I should say) notation work. The letter indicate the note name, the number indicates the number of the octave. Hence, A4 is an octave higher than A3. As a reference, remember the standard tuning absolute notes, or at least that the lower ...

What seems to be causing the confusion here is a swing feel, used quite a lot in Jazz. It has caused me confusion in the past too. Put simply it's when you take the 2 even quavers in each beat, lengthen the first one and shorten the second to give a smoother feel. It has a very distinctive sound usually (the wiki article can explain far better than I ...

In version 1.2 there is menu item: Track->Lyrics that opens a dialog box, in which you can add/edit the text that appears below the tab(s). This seems to be the only way to access this feature (no toolbar button or hotkey). There is a corresponding section in the help documentation that describes how to use this feature.

TuxGuitar shortcut configurations are stored in an XML file. I was able to add my own shortcut for the "Let Ring" feature by guessing its name based on other configuration entries in this file. The steps are: Open ~/.tuxguitar-1.4/config/shortcuts.xml Add this entry (which sets "r" as the key): <shortcut action="action.note.effect.change-let-ring" keys="...

There are some knobs in the instrument settings. The first one controls the volume: I added the red arrow, which points to the knob that controls the volume. Note that this setting affects the volume of an instrument. If several tracks are associated with the same instrument, this knob controls the volume of all of them. So this is not quite the same as ...

Here is what I believe is the most accurate and idiomatic notation for the audio example you have given: As others have mentioned, swing 8th notes can be notated in many different ways. I have decided to notate your swung notes as dotted 8th - 16th pairs because it is common to do this when the swung note is particularly late, and also in order to ...

What you want to do is lower the master fader. Push Ctrl+M to bring up the mixer: In the mixer you can adjust the volume of different tracks by moving the faders or mute totally by clicking the "Mute" box. To the very right you have the master fader. For some reason it's labeled "Gain" in TuxGuitar as of version 1.2. Lower it to lower all sounds output from ...

As answered in this post , you need to click on the "V" button, which is available for each instrument in the "Instruments" dialog.

This is probably linked to : why is guitar music written one octave higher? An easy fix would be to transpose everything 12 half tones higher but not sure if it easier in Tux or Lilypond...

It looks like your problem is coming in the notation of beat 3. You have 16th rest, two 16th triplets and two 16th triplet rests. Assuming the last two notes attacked are supposed to fall on beat 4 and its upbeat, this leaves beat 3 missing a tiny subdivision, a 32nd triplet. To fix that you would just need the last 16th triplet rest of beat 3 to be a ...

Unfortunately, TuxGuitar does not currently have this capability. Posts on their forum have been suggesting such an implementation for years, but it has not yet been acted upon. If you need software that can provide such markings, I recommend free/open-source programs like MuseScore or LilyPond (my personal favorite). Finale, Sibelius, and Dorico also have ...

Print formatting appears to be unsupported. Wayne Gabree's tutorial makes no mention of it, a question similar to yours received no answers, and a related bug report also suggests there is no such support. From the bug report: Luis - 2018-07-28: Style.stringSpacing works very well for the screen but not for printing the tab. Could you help me in discovering ...

Drop C tuning most commonly refers to a tuning set up like this CGCFAD that is, C3 G3 C4 F4 A4 D5 There are a few different variations on this, but this is the most widely used.

I couldn't see the "V", but I found out 6 circles at the right of each instrument. Volume can be tuned with the first one.

There's not an obvious way to to lengthen the measures, but you can turn your note value into two smaller ones that are tied like this: One quarter note: Two tied eigth notes:
