Metal Guitar Scordatura

Dear Forum, I would like to leave the notation in E minor while the guitar is tuned down to C# minor. So, the score should be written in e minor sounding in c# minor with a normal treble clef. Maybe I have to cutomize a stave like this…
Thanks for your help


  1. set the tunings for your strings in the Edit Strings and Tuning dialog
  2. also in the Edit Strings and Tuning dialog, set up a transposition (“In staff notation, written C4 sounds as A2”
  3. in Layout Options for the layouts you want to show transposed, ensure that “Transposing layout” is on, turn on “Use fretted instrument transposition” and set the button below to “For notation and main chord symbols”
