i used the search bar but i wasn't sure on what to search for.

so, im trying to make up a tab for this song im making up. the problem is that i write this bar and no matter what i change in it, it's either bar incomplete or bar exceeded.

the bar right before the trouble bar is essentially the same thing, just different notes. i have no idea what im doing wrong.

i downloaded the manual and it was no help.

here's a screenshot:

You've most likely not put in the correct number of notes.

4/4 = 1 Whole Note or
2 Half Notes or
4 Quarter Notes or
8 Eighth Notes or
16 Sixteenth Notes

Etc.

Your combination is probably not correct.

WRONG FORUM BTW

Well that bar is equal to 4.25 beats, because you got 3 16th notes at the start

well if you want it to be THOSE EXACT notes then you'd need to change the bar to a 9/8 bar insted of a 4/4 bar. To do that in the drop down menu choose "Bar" and then "Time Signature" and change it to what you want. Or you could get rid of one of the "3" on the A string in the first beat, not sure if you want to do it though..

EDIT: so yeah in total that bar adds up too 4 and a quater beats so its to much for a 4/4 bar

You've got too many notes in the last bar. The three 16th notes have to bee triplets, then they fit in the bar. Or change the time signature to 17/16 in that bar if you think it sounds like you want it to.
