How To Print Sheet Music From The *Cosmic Wind* Archive

In order to produce high quality printouts which fill a full page we have intentionally left the page scans very large.

Your browser will probably not print these properly. For best results, follow the instructions below.

If you do not feel confident following these instructions, collar someone who is good with computers and get them to do it for you (or show you how).

TIP: You may want to print out this page before beginning.

If you are NOT using a Microsoft Windows computer, you will definitely need to find someone who is good with your particular system, and get their help. In that case, I'm afraid I can't help you.

If you have a problem and all else fails, you may write me concerning the instructions on this page at support@dragoncounsel.com and I'll try to help you out. For any other computer related problems, I offer consultation & support at reasonable rates.
