VII Advice for uploading your sheet music

You can publish guitar works if they belong to the public domain or are your own compositions or transcriptions. Music must be written on stave; Tab will be refused.
To convert your score to PDF we recommend the open source software "PDFCreator" which you can download from the following URL:
Facsimiles of early music tabs (1500 - 1700) for lute, vihuela or guitar are acceptable in JPG format.

Use these guidelines when listing the title
To allow automatic organisation and alphabetic search function of MP3s, scores and videos, please name your message following this layout:
Name of composer, Forename of composer, Title of work.
The semicolon (;) acts as a separator between the composer and title, for example:
Sor, Fernando; op.35/13 Etude
The semicolon is very important; it allows us to create a list of MP3s, scores and videos automatically.

MP3s, scores and videos that have not been titled by this method have to be edited and modified manually by the forum administrator.
Careful titling means that everyone (including those who do not speak your language) can find them more easily.
If the composer has two forenames, write only their initials, with a space between:
Bach, J. S.; BWV 1006 Prelude
If we publish an MP3, score or video of a duo, we add this tag - Duo at the end, - Trio for a trio, - Quartetto for a Quartet and - Ensemble for more. E.g.,
Anon.; La Rossignol - Duo
Gabrielli, Giovanni; Sonate pian e forte - Quartetto
Vivaldi, Antonio; Andante of Concerto in G - Ensemble
For scores add the tag [PDF] or [JPG] at the start of the title e.g.
[PDF] Sor, Fernando; op.35/13 Etude
You can attach PDF or JPG files in the forum 'Our Scores for guitar'

To see and print the pages of music from this site you will need "Adobe Acrobat Reader". PDF is a file format developed by the Adobe company. It makes it possible to read and print files independently of the type of computer and type of software that was used for its creation.
