I did a search and a few posts came up with lots of info on some specific details but no one really stated the pros and cons of each. I am looking for something fairly simple to write out simple chord charts and for writing out my transcriptions. I had a trial copy years and years ago of Finale but couldn't get it to work the way I wanted it to. I want to be able to make a template of 4 bars line etc...with the chords written above and maybe the odd rhythmic notation. Any thoughts on which to buy?? I appreciate the insight of people here on the page who actually use it as opposed the video infomercials on the mfg's sites. Thanks!!!
