My question at this point: 1) do I have to completely rescan my music documents to correct an extra page scanned ?
I'll be recording the songs to an mp3 audio file in the same sequence as the PDF.
I'm sure I'll have another question or three as I make progress.
My recent experiences...
I'm in the process of getting my submitted scanned PDF prepared to submit for copyright. I have 6 songs which I recopied (by hand on music score paper) with pages per song.
I notated every song, most with specific chord voicings and melodic rhythm notated. A couple with only a lyric, melody (notated) and chord symbols. While scanning one of the songs, I mistakenly scanned page 2 first - but then scanned page 1 and 2 correctly. This leaves an extra page in the PDF file.
I'll be recording one continuous mp3 audio file - playing the piano and singing the songs.
I still wish there were graphics-only software for notating music WITHOUT all the MIDI capabilities. This would allow me (or anyone else) to create and later edit these simple scores without recopying everything by hand - but without running into dead ends from violating notation rules and laws. Sometimes the notations are similar to cue cards. Sometimes only a simile melody, lyrics and chord names are needed. But sometimes a specific "hook" has been designed/composed - and would benefit from complete (bass and treble staff) notation with rhythm. I feel that there should be apps to accommodate both situations in the same notated score.
I may make a mock-up of what I'd like to see. Anyway.....

As always, thanks for insights and info
