The following step-by-step tutorials and examples build up one upon the other and are designed to introduce you to some basic Chords and Scales features. Using the fonts Chords and Scales is very intuitive. However, I recommend that you work through the examples step by step.

The examples are created in Apple Pages. Make sure that
ligatures are enabled.
