Why did I wait so long?

I’ve had TablEdit for several years, have struggled with figuring it out, but I’d not heard about Melanie’s instructional manual until an earlier Quarantune Festival. Since I finally downloaded it, I’ve spent hours following along, page by page, and having “ah ha” moments, one after another. Simple things, like changing the font of guitar chords, plugging in a pickup note, and more, and I’m not done with the manual. I already have questions about settings to tab out for my chromatic dulcimer, so I’ll be in touch if I don’t see answers. This has been well-worth the fee. Thanks, Melanie!
