Hi! :)
I have a guestion. Is it important to write down melody in TAB? I like transcribe songs, but I don't like too much writing tabs.  What are the benefits of doing it? Sorry for my English :P

To remember so you don't have to figure it out again.  Little pieces are one thing, a whole song is another.

It can help you work out the rhythm. 

If you ever get into a band, jam buddy, song writing situation, or many other scenarios it comes in handy.

I'm sure to transcribe all the bass lines for songs I write with Digger, and anything else I write for that matter.  It's easier than having to relearn it if we pull the song out again 6 months down the road.

when you learn lots of songs it's big help to have them written, as shown above...

but also better to analise what you transcribed too... especially licks and stuff, easy to break them down and see the 'harmonic function' of each note!

 :o I don't like TAB without the music written above, but I DO like that shows the musical rhythms just beneath the TAB guitar string representations.

Hi,

Looking at the TR-102-B PDF I'm a little confused by some of the notation:

For the Bend and Hold  (5th Line) - what does the 15 mean beneath the long arrow above? It that the note to hold or are we holding the full tone bend note (17)?

On the 6th Line - What is the T for? Trill or thumb maybe? but not sure how you could trill or thumb those notes?

Cheers!

I believe the 15 on the E string means to play the G note on the 15th fret of the E string while you are bending the A string.
Don't know what the T is for.

Tr = Trill, Th = Thumb, T = Tap
