Long time ago, when I was still a user of windows (yeah… the original sin …) I was really happy with a music program powertab.
Now a lot of things has changed, first of all I don’t use windows anymore (my last win sys was win 2000 NT …) but I use Linux (ehm.. GNU/Linux), in Ubuntu flavor with GNOME as my main Desktop Enviroment.

Guess what… Powertab editor is a windows only program.

Today one of my friend sent me a two ptb (Powertab original format) files and I was already wondering how to retrieve the program and if it will work emulated with wine..

Then I thought it was impossible nobody has written a cool tab editor for linux. And Indeed I was right!

TuxGuitar is able to import the .ptb files, it has a midi player and it’s pretty amazing!

So, if you enjoy music and need a professional tab editor with a lot of features, give it a shoot!

Keep on rockin…

P.S.: Rock midi file are horrible to listen 🙂
