This forum is for both requesting and discussing incomplete tabs.

If you are interested in getting hold of a tab for a JBT song, first check the JBT Tablatures (Completed) forum.
If there is no tab available, then start a thread here requesting a tab for this song.

Please check in this forum also for any existing threads for the song you want, and if there is already a thread add your request to there - this prevents the forum being clogged up with multiple threads but also leads to discussion rather than lots of demands.

If you have a tab for part of a JBT song, also post it here (in a relevant thread if any exist, if not create one). Do not post it in JBT Tablatures (Completed) if it is half finished.

Hopefully, people will be able to bring their different parts together to get closer to a completed tab.


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.
