Hey, I'm trying to convert some really really hard progressive guitar tabs (http://dreamtheater.net/tab/acos.php ). They're written for a seven-string guitar. Your converter doesn't work.

Just a heads up.

Cmon now, it kinda works. It just doesn't convert that last "b" string. But we can do that manually. Take the first staff, if you will:

2---|--b---------e--g--------e--F-------d--e--------d-e--|-----e--d------
2---|--F-------------------------------------------------|---------------
1---|---------b-----------b-----------b----------b-------|--a------------
B---|------0-----------0-----------0----------0----------|--------------

B0 is actually B on octave 0. Easy enough...but what about the next staff?

                                        (1/2)

2---e-----d--d--d--------e--d---------------|--------e--g--------e-------
1------g-----------e--b-----------F--a------|-----b-----------b----------
B------------------------------3--------3^--|--0-----------0------------

b3 is actually 3 semitones up from b on octave 0. So three steps up from B would be C, C#, D. D octave 1, giving you a converted tab with this for the second staff:

2---e-----d--d--d--------e--d---------------|--------e--g--------e-------
1------g-----------e--b-----------F--a------|-----b-----------b----------
1------------------------------d--------d---|---------------------------
0-------------------------------------------|--b-----------b------------


Haven't run across this before, if it happens more frequently we'll look into adding a seventh string option in the converter. Until then, this should get you by!

Thanks for the feedback,
BA
