1.
Move the Now Time to the note you want to edit by pressing SHIFT+RIGHT/LEFT ARROW. You may need to change the note duration in the Control Bar’s Tools module.
If you prefer to work with the Fretboard instead of a musical staff, SONAR makes it easy to enter notes from the Fretboard. You can enter single notes or chords by clicking the string and fret of the note you want to enter at the Now Time position.
3.
Move the Now Time to where you want to start entering notes by pressing SHIFT+RIGHT ARROW or SHIFT+LEFT ARROW. Each press of the arrow moves the Now Time by the amount of the note duration you choose in the Control Bar’s Tools module.
The note appears on the Fretboard, in the Staff, and in the TAB if you have generated one (to generate a Quick TAB, click the Staff view Edit menu and choose Quick TAB).
5.
If you are entering a chord, continue clicking notes at the same Now Time. To move ahead, press SHIFT+RIGHT ARROW and click a new note duration in the Control Bar’s Tools module, if desired.
You can delete a note right after you enter it by pressing CTRL+Z, or at any time by selecting the Erase tool in the Control Bar and clicking the note in the notation or TAB staffs.

Scrub strumming enables you to “strum” chords by dragging the Scrub tool through a chord. With the Scrub tool activated, drag through a chord on the Fretboard from below it or above it and back and forth.
