This forum is for completed tabs only.

If you have an incomplete tab please post it in the JBT Tablatures (Requests) forum.
If you have no tab but want to request one, post in the JBT Tablatures (Requests) forum.

If you have a tab or corrections for a song that is already posted in this forum, then please add it to that thread, rather than creating a new thread for the same song. It is easier for everyone if we don't have multiple threads.

Posting Tabs

To post tabs you need to use the code tag. To open a tag you write the word code with the [ ] brackets on either side and to close a tag you do the same but use /code instead of code.

Alternatively, you can use the <> button above the posting box to create a set of code tags automatically.

eg. [code*]

|-------------|-------------------|-----0-----0------------|
|-------------|-------------------|-------------0h3p0-3s5--|
|-------------|-------------------|-------3s5--------------|
|-0--0---3----|-----0---3---3---0-|-3s5--------------------|
|-0------3----|-------------------|------------------------|
|-0----0-3----|-3-0---3---3---3---|-3s5--------------------|

[/code*] - without the * in the 'code' tags, I added those so it wouldn't format.

This would produce:

|-------------|-------------------|-----0-----0------------| 
|-------------|-------------------|-------------0h3p0-3s5--| 
|-------------|-------------------|-------3s5--------------| 
|-0--0---3----|-----0---3---3---0-|-3s5--------------------| 
|-0------3----|-------------------|------------------------| 
|-0----0-3----|-3-0---3---3---3---|-3s5--------------------|


As you can see, the unformatted tab text is not aligned but the formatted tab is. If you are creating a tab in Word or a similar word processing program and your tab looks aligned there, it may not appear aligned after it is formatted. If this happens you will need to fiddle around with it and remove or add some '-' marks.

However, some fonts in word processing software will create accurate alignment - 'Courier' font is an example of this.
