Yes,Keith, I tried that spacing a few ways. I’ve no problem getting the numbers under the words ok. But when I submit everything goes out of order. BB Code is supposed to keep all A’s typed. We have BBCode on our system, just up from the message area.

Test number 2.
On a cold..win-ter night..not a star was in sight..and the North Wind came howl-long
+5. -5. +6. +6. +5. +4. +5 +6. +7. +7. -6. -5. -5. +6. -6. +6. +5. +4. -4.

OK I think I’ve got it.Requires shorter lines. The plus sign is a bugbear and slows it up. Maybe better on the computer. Pads are not so versatile.
This an edit, now to submit ...will it go ok?

No ! Back to the drawing board. Sorry I’m using this forum but this is where it’s got to go. Next back to BBCode. Won’t get James’s clarity.

OK ,Keith, no more tests. James has put me on the right track. You can delete this topic if you wish. Only now I have typed up a song, I have the video but not sure if there's going to be a special topic place to keep them all together. James has another page which I can't easily find.

I have been experimenting again. Wanted to show some indication of rhythm with tabs. But keep the indications out of the numbers to keep them simple. I used the lyrics to indicate although they can't be dead accurate, at least they give s bit of help for those not knowing the tune. (I think)
Dots after a note indicate the beats for that note. Words underlined are the notes that are quicker notes (like 1/8 notes.)
The numbering standard no mark then blow, minus - draw as -3 , and asterisk after a note indicates the note is to use the slide. (chromatic)
I couldn't underline using notepad so used wordpad. Problem was it doesnt save in txt without jumbling the order of numbers.
So I used Copy the page and saved as a jpeg

Now I'm about to attach the file and see if it comes out in order. Sorry I cant delete this post except from the home entry.
