I'll ask this question again. I recently purchased Progression, and can find no in-depth video tutorials anywhere on the net. I may find one by Neal Zazza, but it's more of a professional musician using this tool in conjunction with his vast knowledge of sheet music to capture things.

I don't read sheet music any longer (been years), and I'm merely looking for quick tutorials on how to easily create sheet music for compositions that I've written (basically acoustic guitar chord music and lyrics) so it's captured forever.

I guess I'm not looking for "how to read sheet music", but maybe "how to turn chord music into sheet music".

There's literally nothing online related to using Progression in anything meaningful to a person like me. I feel that I've wasted money on this purchase, and it bums me out.

You can find some video tutorials on Progression here:
Or the user guide within Progression itself. Bear in mind, that mostly the documentation is about how to use the software, rather than the musical process of how to transcribe into sheet music.

One good first step might be, that when you add a guitar, you'll see both tablature and 5-line standard notation linked to that one instrument. Anything you add is then reflected in both - you can use the onscreen fretboard or even a MIDI guitar to enter notes and see the correlation between the chords you are entering, and the result on TAB and standard notation.
