If you would put dots underneath indicating the beats like at, it would help a lot in figuring out how to play it or without having to go back to the music.

I agree with you; but it does take more time and is easier to mess up putting one wrong dot; and one will probably end up listening to that song or part of a song anyways. But on licks like I posted back some time ago; it would be a benifit; without ever really hearing that lick before. That is why I cut a audio/video; so one can here and see it played with the tab. I also believe you can't tab the inflections and emotions and small slurrs of a particular piece, accurately; that's why I really think it is important to hear the tab or somekind of
audio version of the tab. But nervertheless; great idea; asdasd. But I won't particularly put beat notation with my tab; hurts my brain too much.
