Ruto:
But this idea occurred to me and I thought it wouldn't hurt to post it.

Articles about the software make up a ton of questions, so those are definitely needed right now. General instruction FAQs can be posted here too, but that would seem more appropriate in the 'Music' board, unless it's condensed to a single post and linked.

Not a bad idea. While I'm fourteen and am pretty good at the piano, I don't have any desire for tutorials...
But on YouTube all the comments ever say is "tutorial, please!"

So, this may help... no one can guarantee it though.

Nintendude73:
It would definitely help with a lot of the questions we get here...  Especially "How do I download the sheets?!"

Haha, I gotcha. But when I mean tutorials, it isn't just something like "step by step: how to play Linebeck's theme", though you can completely do it if you want to. I mean, more general music ones, like this or "How do I practice piano" (lol). Or even simpler is Nintendude's idea: How to download the sheets, aka the "Idiot-proof guide series".

When writing a instruction guide like the first, citations would be needed or possibly just you saying "X years of piano lessons". Posting notes from a music theory class could be done too.

I'm going to come up with a sample guide, "How to do I open these sheets" in the next time I post...with pictures! :D

How to Open Sheets from NSM

NSM's sheets are written exclusively with the MakeMusic series of music software.  These sheets can only be read using the program software, or with a free program called Finale Reader

Downloading Finale Reader

Go to Finale Reader's main site HERE

You should see this:



1) On the right side, select your OS, Mac or Windows. You should see a page prompting you to register. Follow their instructions to get an account on their site.

2) You should finally be able to see the download window. For Windows, click to start the download. The filename for the Windows version is called FinReaderWin, should you forget where it downloaded to. The filename for Mac is [...]

3) When it's complete, Windows users should find the .exe file and install the program. When you open the file, Windows will ask if you want to open the file. Open it, then click "Next" to begin.

4) Agree to their terms; the next window asks you to pick the install location. The default is fine. Then you have to pick the Start Menu location, again the default setting should be okay. Finale will then install in your system. [Mac instructions are ...]

5) Congratulations! You can now read sheets from NSM or open any .mus file.
