Musical score in 5/4 time with dynamics

Reading music is hard and there's a reason.

Western musical notation is a general-purpose graphical language. Guitarists need to interpret what the arranger means when they read music from a score. Arrangers need a special-purpose language to notate music that guitarists understand.

Contemporary scoring software allows us to define a semantics for a guitar-specific notation using a special-purpose graphical language and publish it online. Guitarists can then better interpret and arrangers better notate a score.
