how do you write a tab on here? i would love to write a note perfect bass tab for Heavy horses by jethro tull, but i dont really fancy having to manually type in thousands of ---- and stuff. i'd also like to write songs from the wood and hunting girl, again by tull, but it seems like an incredible amount of faffing around
Guitar Pro or a free version called tuxguitar. If you use tux guitar, make sure you Save as and then change the file type to a GP file.
Yeah I personally like to use Guitar Pro, you simply put the frets on the correct strings and complete your tab. You can then either upload to UG as a GPro tab, or (and I've used this several times) you can export the tab as different file types, the format you see most tabs is ASCII so you export as this and just copy the text into the box when submitting the tab.
