I guess it is because everyone is using Guitar
pro to do their tabs - Guitar Pro uses Ls to signify tied notes, but I don't think its too clear, especially when you paste it into the forum, the alignment ususally seems to suffer.

I suspect that this is because although people use the Courier font, the spaces don't seem to be fixed width like the rest of the characters are.

I guess the easiest way would be to replace the ASCII tabs with GIF or JPG exports from Guitar Pro ...

But I'm a chronic text highlighter. How will I highlight the section I want to focus on if it's in .jpg form. Think of the children sad.gif

Here are a few more thoughts:

Obviously the TAB is a hugely important part of the lesson, and each format has its drawbacks:
  • ASCII tabs have no timing information
  • Not everyone reads music
  • JPG tabs can't be highlighted
  • GP tabs can't be read without buying a program
So here is my suggestion:

1. Require all instrucors to have GP5 (or maybe GMC could buy a copy for instructors that don't have it)
2. Standardise on GP tabs for all lessons
3. Once a GP tab exists, it is simple to export to ASCII, JPG and Powertab
4. Provide all 4 of the above with each lesson

That should cover all bases, and isn't a huge amount of extra work for the instructors once they have tabbed it in GP which most do anyway.
