    Hi Szulc,
    I don't want to seem like a moron, but what file format is a .ptb file as my computer doesn't recognise it and can't use it. Is there a particular program I need to read it? Cool article you wrote on spins by the way, very interesting!

    I t would have been impractical to post a bitmap or series of bit maps of this. SPeaking of which how do you guys generate your bitmapsof Powertab do you just <ctrl> print screen and paste into paint or is there an easier way?

    Hi...

    Well, I do have Paint Shop Pro 4.12 ( which is kinda outdated but still cool... unfortunately I currently donīt have the install-file anymore, but itīs a freeware program )
    With that program, you can do "Capturing", kinda photographing whatīs displayed on the screen. Therefore, I can make jpegs of several staffs, like I did for my articles and some of my posts at the forum.
    I chose the area of the screen to be "captured", then this section gets transferred to PSP, and there I can brighten up the colors a bit ( I do, otherwise itīs a bit too dark ), change the size ( usually I resample to a width of 600 pixels ) and save as a bmp, jpg or gif.

    Once you get used to it, it works pretty fast...
    Warm regards
    Eric

    Hey James,

    whew... I took another look at the ptb... awesome stuff. Quite difficult to nail atz the tempo the ptb is set to, but a great exercise and great melodies in there.
    I guess I missed that one when you first put it up.
    Thanks
    Eric

    Thanks Eric

    Thanks
    I used to do this years ago, I can't play it nearly as fast as I used to. I would like to hear Thorsten or JDF75 do this!
    I'll bet they could nail it at a ridiculously fast tempo!

    Yo James!

    Your wish is my command! So hereīs my best attempt after practising it for an hour.

    Itīs not that ridiculously fast but at least itīs half way clean.

    Iīm playing the first arpeggios up and down...those pivoting licks were giving me major trouble!

    If Iīll keep practising I think one day Iīll get it right...cool stuff,yo!
