Getting from Garageband/Midi Guitar 2 to Notion 6 score

I’m new to Notion 6 and trying to figure out how to get simple guitar melodies scored.  I want to save time by playing the notes on my guitar rather than composing note-by-note in Notion 6.

I have an iMac with 1TB HDD and 24 GB memory and i5 processor running Mojave.  I’m using a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 connected to my acoustic guitar with built-in pickup.  I purchased Midi Guitar 2 to create Midi files.  I use the Midi Guitar 2 plug in in Garageband to create a midi track.  

So far, so good.  I can see and play the track in Garageband.

But now I’m stuck.  How can I get from the track in a Garageband .band file to a filet ype that Notion 6 can read and convert to a score?  Or, how can I go directly from Midi Guitar 2 to Notion 6 score?  

Not doing anything fancy—just simple melodies.

Is it possible to do this?

Hi there,
unfortunately GarageBand does not let you export MIDI. We don't know MIDI Guitar 2, however, Notion does have built-in presets to cope with MIDI in from Guitars using audio to MIDI converters. Good examples of these can be found by Sonuus and Fishman (TriplePlay)
