Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

Sor's Maxim # One: "To regard the effect of the music more than the praise as to skill as a performer." from his Method for the Spanish Guitar.

Beginning at the measure marked with there are three parts - melody, bass, and a simple middle part. The middle part begins with a quarter rest sign, and is followed by the 3rd string quarter note "G". The quarter note symbol at times has to be offset a bit horizontally so it does not collide with the other pitches of the melody and bass parts. This offset does not effect the counting of the rhythm.

Although three-part writing at first may seem confusing, over time you will become comfortable with this aspect of music notation, particularly if you keep in mind that each melodic strand - whether there are one, two or three parts, is counted separately within each measure.
