There were four or five tabs that I tried to find a tab for Steve McQueen by Sheryl Cow, but none agreed with the song and none covered the entire guitar part. I kept searching until I found a digital and printed version of the song on Music Notes. I have written a review about my experience with the service.
Music Notes is an online store that sells sheetmusic for more than 100,000 titles. You can instantly download and print the music. You can also download the free Guitar Guru software, which allows you to play and learn the music from an animated fretboard on your computer’s screen.
Software Interface and Site Interface
It is easy to navigate the site and has a search function that makes it simple to find songs. You can view the first page of scores to check if it is suitable for what you are looking for (easy chords and tab, standard …).).
Plug-in software is required to view and print music. Music Notes automatically detected the correct software for my browser and computer. The Music Notes Suite was easy to download and install. The package includes Guitar Guru software.
Music purchases are easy using the familiar shopping cart. Payment via Paypal was seamless. Credit cards are also supported.
You can either print the purchased music immediately or, if you prefer, you can download it from the confirmation email. Music Notes gives you multiple downloads and printing options. Some sites, however, only allow for one download Fakaza.
To print to PDF files, I installed a PDF printer driver on my computer. You can view the music directly on your screen, and you can also easily reprint the original if it gets damaged or lost.
Music Notes prices all titles at $5.25. Guitar Guru versions are $2 more. (On special offer of $1 when I purchased), Volume discounts of up to 20% are available if you purchase 6 or more scores.
Other sites, such as Sheet Music Score or Sheet Music Direct, offer similar sheet music at $0.99 to $3.95 depending upon the arrangement. Music Notes has a larger selection, but neither site had the title I wanted. Sheet Music Direct, for example, has ten Sheryl Crow songs available for download.
The Guitar Guru version was an excellent value. It contains more than just the printed transcription, with all parts for each of the three guitars. (The printed sheet music only has two parts).
I found the animated fretboard and tempo control much easier than using the tab.
Overall, my experience with Music Notes was positive. It was simple to use, and it was easy for me to download, print and purchase music notes.
I was very happy to buy the official legal version of the song. I know I will repeat it for other songs.
