Ok, so sorry if this is the wrong section to put this in.

But is it viewed as acceptable to download a tab in Power Tab, convert it to Guitar Pro and then upload it back to the site?

I just cannot see the point in this whatsoever.

I had this song in mind when writing this. The PowerTab to Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky ( is practically the same as it's Guitar Pro counterpart ( The only difference is the layout, as the GPro has the tabs to repeat x6 whilst the PTab has it to repeat x2.

I've no idea which one was uploaded first, so maybe if it's Guitar Pro to Power Tab then just change the topic title etc.

Does this happen alot on here ?

No, in general, it's not acceptable to copy someone elses tab as your own. If you give credit I don't see a problem with that. They are both unregistered which could mean the same person uploaded both of them.

Thanks for that.

I wasn't personally talking about me or anything. My tabbing days are over.

I just couldn't see the point in having the 2 files, when as PowerTab it would suffice. Simply because you could play it on Powertab and import it on Guitar Pro.

Sometimes I have to get the PT file as well because when I open the GP one it says it cannot play the file.
