Only vaguely related: Has there ever been any interest in adding a guitar tablature editor to Rosegarden? It wouldn't be a simple task as it would require A.I. and/or metadata saved in the .rg file to specify what string and fret to use for each note out of the multiple possible same-pitch choices (e.g. the same A is on fret 2 of the G string and fret 7 of the D string) so that chords and melodies are "fingerable". As I no longer (pathetically attempt to) play guitar I'm not likely to take it on as a project, but it would be a very nice addition to Rosegarden if someone else would contribute it.

I've been satisfied with exporting the RG as a MusicXML file, importing it into Musescore, and setting Musescore to do tablature. That lets me do things like specify open/alternate tunings. Another option is Tuxguitar, but Musescore does a better job of printing. Tuxguitar lets you specify the player's ability level, which is kind of nice. I don't know if Musescore can to that. I haven't done much tablature lately.

I think adding it to RG while maintaining the ability to also display/edit it *as a score* would be really tough.
