sorry, there is some thing i don't know about using the Code. I thought everything between the 2 codes meant the entry would be exactly as written, but the numbers go out of line. Without the Code the numbers crunch up..Anyone know how to keep alignment.

I don't see how some songs could be effectively tabbed. I can see blues riffs, waltzes, ballads etc, but a song like Whiskey Before Breakfast, Tennessee Wagoner, etal. Even if someone could or would take the time to tab out all those notes, now do they indiicate the timing/rhythm?

No - basic tab, (which is what we are talking about here), only shows the holes to play, that is why to play them you need to know the tune.

But a beginner usually looks for the tab to a tune s/he already knows, but wants to play on harmonica.

Unfortunately, the only way on some websites is to use 'spaces'.

I don’t understand Spaces, Keith. I searched the internet for BB Code, but seemed the only solutions is to use Cuistom BB Code. Just have to keep at it. On Harptabs many songs achieve it ok.

I mean, on some sites, you have to space the hole number out by using the space bar on your keyboard.
