I think is a pretty clear tutorial. I can pick up finale within couple days by watching it. The only complaint is this version is quite old, so some of the functions are different than the current version.

Great information. Very Helpful!
Many of these tricks, especially shortcut keys, I did not know and I've been a Finale user for years. Wish I had seen these earlier.
