thanks for the interest.
About sharing the code, as I already mailed privately to Tom, I'm not going to do that, because I don't really know yet what I can do with the music and sheet music, but the main reason is that there are some includes which would require a correct path. I'm sure anyone here could fix that, but the library of includes is so messed up that only I can really make use of it :-). Cleaning that up is one of the priorities on my 'todo' items :-p.

I am a guitarist and I would love to read through it.

If, for some reason I do not get back to you in a day or two, please
feel free to ping me.

(Kind of busy, but very interested.)
