Help in Uploading Tab= N00B

Okay, well I want to upload my tab of fingerstyle version 'Sis Puella Magica' but it's in Powertab format. Unfortunetly, the site doesn't allow uploading ptb. files. What do I do now? Any thoughts?

This'll be my first guitar tab, so yeah label me a N00B tab uploader if you wish.

The Powertab software I use is Powertab Editor 1.7.

I don't think so? And when I try to export to zip, 7Zip refuses (I tried, won't upload) and I have to pay for WINZIP, I think.

Yup, I'm a N00B at this.(Fail)

You know, I guess I'll rewrite in a different format.

I'll probably delete this thread in bit. (Facepalms).

I'm sorry, I don't have Power Tab, but I checked Wikipedia, and it said Power Tab CAN export to ASCII text. So I went looking online for instructions, and they say:

To export the active score to ASCII text, select the ASCII File menu item on the File + Export menu. You'll be asked where you want to save the file, and then the Export to ASCII Text File dialog box will appear

It sounds like you CAN export. Does that help?

I might be missing something crucial about this, but can you just add the ptb file to a zip?

Exactly.....

Plus who the F pays for Winzip/Rar?

And who says you need to even have those to make a compressed Zip folder by RIGHT CLICKING it.

Shit, this was harder than I thought.
(Sorry for the language I'm usually the gentleman, but it's just that I'm a bit on edge right now.)

OKAY, looks fine before UPLOADING, then I PREVIEW the tab and it looks completely fucked (jumbled) up.

Any thoughts?

Oh, and if there is any FOURM that TEACHES YOU HOW TO UPLOAD, I would like that very much, thank you.
*Excuse the CAPS Lock, I just want to get this over with. I want to contribute like everyone else, I don't want to be just sittin' there.

NOW IT NEEDS PUBLISHING!!!

Wow, I'm sucha damn N00B at uploading. Screw it. Screw the world.

I guess it's under unapproved tabs if anybody wants to look at it.
Correct my mistakes if you wish or whatever, published or not, I'm happy.

i think what gio was trying to say is that both winzip and winrar have trial versions that - to the best of my knowledge - never actually expire

I'm just kidding anyway But

I think people might be slightly confused since every note is marked as the same duration. If you ever want to update it to give them durations or take them out of the text file entirely, it might be less confusing.

But I know some people ignore those entirely. So it's up to you!

=D Thanks! Yeah, this was my first time tabbing something! But I'm happy, I have to say I was a bit nervous so there were some mistakes. (XD)

Next time I'll definately know what to do! Thanks again! =D

Thank you!

And that you can simply RIGHT click the folder.
Select "Send to Compressed Folder"

And BOOM, it's done. No downloading or anything.
