I’d like to humbly propose the following:
Please introduce smart positioning indicators (Commonly Roman numerals) to establish a better connection between TAB, fingerings, Notation and positioning for fretted instruments.
I just went back to an old transcription of a Larry Carlton tune, and when I switched on TAB, it put everything down into open position, which is unfortunately not ideal…
I’d like to be able to add a Roman numeral positioning indicator together with a certain note and have the TAB react to that by putting the note on the proper string.
Vice versa, if I enter TAB, any notes that appear on the same string in different positions AND are played with the same finger (or even a different finger, depending on the direction of the slide…) should result in an automatically generated Roman positioning numeral. Which should be hideable, of course…
Added complexity is likely arising from the fact that the Roman positioning marks are usually put where the index finger is, so there should be a default for a “III.” to appear for let’s say a slide down with the ring finger from 7th to the 5th fret.
Thanks so much for considering this,
