I've noticed in the song and tab sections a number of tabs posted. I would like to contribute, but have no idea how to. It was mentioned to just use notepad and paste, then use the code. I do not know how to get the 4 bars,strings, lines etc. from notepad? Any help would be appreciated.

Its pretty simple.. you just kinda type it out like this:

|-------------------------------]
|-------------------------------]
|-------------------------------]
|-------------------------------]

you hit the line, then hit dash tons of times , then you hit the bracket, then hit enter and do the same thing to the next line. or copy and paste the first line.

then once you do that you enter in all the appropriate numbers to make your tab. Its easiest in notepad because everything will look like it should because the font is evenly spaced.

I just realized that you may be unfamiliar with copy and paste.. um if you use windows you highlight the text you want to copy then hit CTRL+C this copies the text onto your clipboard. then you go to the 'reply to thread' page on UU select the Code sign which is the "#" and Paste the text between the two. To paste you hit CTRL+V. You can also do all of that with the right click of your mouse.

Or if you wanted to you can just save the .txt file you created in Notepad and attach it to the message that you write. You can attach files using the 'additional options'


Like this
Honey Baby:
A |-----4-5-4-7-7-7-7-5-4-4h5p4-7-7---------------]
E |---5-------------------------------------------]
C |-6---------------------------------------------]
G |-----------------------------------------------]

or
Aldrine's Flashman theme:
A |------2---5-4--0--3-2-------------------2-2-2-2-------------]
E |-----3----------------3--5--3-----------2-2-2-3-------------]
C |--3/4--------------------------4p2--4---2-2-2-4-------------]
G |----------------------------------------2-2-2-2-------------]

When I edited this second tab ^
I used the evenly-spaced font "Courier" in a word processor.

Thanks a lot, davoomac, Very clear, it would make a nice sticky so you don't have to repeat it and I'm sure most newbe members would find it very helpfull.

Thanks Again
