Sorry, the MIDI cable does not carry the analog sound from the guitar. MIDI is a control signal to send information from one piece of musical equipment to another.

If your computer has a "line in" (usually the blue connector) you may be able to plug the guitar in there. You will need an adapter to do that.

You are going to be much better off just buying a cheap guitar amp

A line in cable might help you record the sound of your guitar, but it won't allow you to input chords into Finale.

Some companies, most notably Roland, have done some work over the years with guitar synthesizers, in which what you play on the guitar gets converted to MIDI data, but I'm not too sure of the current state of play in this area. Try googling for phrases like roland guitar synth, and you'll find plenty of info on the web.

Thanks for the Help!,I will search the web,I was told by a friend that I should look for a Guitar Interface box to connect between the Guitar And my Mac,So I'll have to check that out,Also if you read the Finale 09 Manual on page 171, It's say that you can use a MIDI guitar to enter Music into your score much like you can with a MIDI keyboard using the Hyperscribe tool.I will update this if it works,So to Help others,Thanks Again for your Input,I'll check the Web.
