Hello. I use Frescobaldi, the GUI for Lylipond. You should include the addon written by Paul Battley for shamisen notation. You find It on GitHub or on his blog

I’ve been using lilypond with the shamisen add-on “” It is text based but with the program Frescobaldi you can see what you are doing and it’s been pretty simple to use once I got the hang of it
