Does anyone know what this does? Set Pick Finger P Set Pick Finger I  Set Pick Finger M Set Pick Finger A Set Pick Finger C. It's an assignable keycommand in Logic but I can't find anything on it anywhere on the net. Please Help


Logic Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    That is for the Notation part of Logic, specifically the right hand fingering notation for guitar. Mainly for classical guitar but could be used for any style where the right hand fingers are used instead of a pick.

     

    PIMA   P=Thumb,    I=Index finger,   M=Middle finger,   A=Ring finger

     

     

    Oh.. and  C=(the rarely used) little finger.

    Ok I got it, but you have to set it in guitar style first for it to work. You can't assign it in the default staff.

    Since it's a right hand fingering used in classical or finger style playing it would go in the score, usually above the notes. Most of the time right hand fingering is left up to the individual but some complicated passages require certain fingers be used.

    I use a separate scoring program and haven't used Logic's for some time now, makes sense that you would have to be in Guitar style for it to work, thanks for posting back, I learned something as well.
