I have the finger style acoustic guitar extension. Any idea how to create the open string harmonics? It says it has the samples to do that. I cant seem to find any marking to trigger them.

Can't say with certainty as I don't have the library, but typically harmonics are triggered by the circle symbol. You'll find it in the palette, looks like a little o.

Yeah, I used that. Doesn't do anything. I must be doing something wrong....

Odd. My next suggestion would be to open a support ticket.

Great thanks. Found it. Didn't think of looking under the tab section for this.

That's fine for the usual natural harmonics (5th 7th, 12th frets) but there seems to be no support for artificial harmonics. On guitar you can play harmonics on every note, although some are easier than others (and some pretty difficult). Usually some form of pinch harmonic etc etc.

The point being that any writing (or transcribing) for guitar (especially electric).needs to be able to accomodate this. Modern music is full of it.

Notion doesn't allow this. I wish I am wrong. I wish it would.
I wish it could add slides to grace notes too!

Cheers

Hi,

Notion does support Artificial as well as Natural Harmonics. It's a bit unintuitive for the Artificial ones. Also depends on how you want to notate it. In the screenshot example, I notated pinch harmonics for notes played on the 3rd and 4th frets and "pinched" the harmonic an octave higher on the 15th and 16th frets. The way I notated them is somewhere in between Artificial and Pinch Harmonics just to show some flexibility. I didn't really think there was a differenece, but I notated both. The difference with pinch being that I added the harmonic pitch below the tab.

The AH and PH are just text boxes. The harmonics were added as notes with the diamond head. Place the round head notes on the treble staff first to indicate the fretted note on the tab. Then add the diamond head notes for the harmonic pitches above them. A bracketed box with a <?> will appear on the tab. Drag that down to the approriate string for the pitch you entered on the treble staff.

Weird harmonics, notated or not, are probably not going to sound on playback in Notion because there probably aren't samples for all of the possibilities. But, you can still notate them.
