I keep seeing .ptb files everywhere and I feel I am missing out on some wisdom. What exactly is powertab and does it run on a mac?

i don't think you can use powertab on mac but i think i found a way around it.

This guy on this site has a conversion tool from ptb to ascii or lilypond

Lilypond seems to be a multi-platform music notation application.

So if you find a Mac version you can convert a ptb to lilypond and view it on your mac.

You'll have to do more research coz i don't have much time at the moment (and neither a mac to try anything out). Just googled around ;)

enjoy powertabbing or lilytabbing :D ha ha
