What seems to be causing the confusion here is a swing feel, used quite a lot in Jazz. It has caused me confusion in the past too. Put simply it's when you take the 2 even quavers in each beat, lengthen the first one and shorten the second to give a smoother feel. It has a very distinctive sound usually (the wiki article can explain far better than I ...

In version 1.2 there is menu item: Track->Lyrics that opens a dialog box, in which you can add/edit the text that appears below the tab(s). This seems to be the only way to access this feature (no toolbar button or hotkey). There is a corresponding section in the help documentation that describes how to use this feature.

I found this on the SourceForge forums. Click on the guitar icon on the toolbar and choose "Show Instruments":

The program gives you the ability to choose how many strings you want, and then the tuning of each of these strings. The numbers 1-9 refer to octaves. So, for instance, you could choose to tune a 12 string guitar by doubling each string at pitch or by doubling each string at an octave higher. The pitches are named according to Scientific Pitch Notation. ...

TuxGuitar shortcut configurations are stored in an XML file. I was able to add my own shortcut for the "Let Ring" feature by guessing its name based on other configuration entries in this file. The steps are: Open ~/.tuxguitar-1.4/config/shortcuts.xml Add this entry (which sets "r" as the key): <shortcut action="action.note.effect.change-let-ring" keys="...

It looks like your problem is coming in the notation of beat 3. You have 16th rest, two 16th triplets and two 16th triplet rests. Assuming the last two notes attacked are supposed to fall on beat 4 and its upbeat, this leaves beat 3 missing a tiny subdivision, a 32nd triplet. To fix that you would just need the last 16th triplet rest of beat 3 to be a ...

Here is what I believe is the most accurate and idiomatic notation for the audio example you have given: As others have mentioned, swing 8th notes can be notated in many different ways. I have decided to notate your swung notes as dotted 8th - 16th pairs because it is common to do this when the swung note is particularly late, and also in order to ...

What you want to do is lower the master fader. Push Ctrl+M to bring up the mixer: In the mixer you can adjust the volume of different tracks by moving the faders or mute totally by clicking the "Mute" box. To the very right you have the master fader. For some reason it's labeled "Gain" in TuxGuitar as of version 1.2. Lower it to lower all sounds output from ...

As answered in this post , you need to click on the "V" button, which is available for each instrument in the "Instruments" dialog.

Unfortunately, TuxGuitar does not currently have this capability. Posts on their forum have been suggesting such an implementation for years, but it has not yet been acted upon. If you need software that can provide such markings, I recommend free/open-source programs like MuseScore or LilyPond (my personal favorite). Finale, Sibelius, and Dorico also have ...

There's not an obvious way to to lengthen the measures, but you can turn your note value into two smaller ones that are tied like this: One quarter note: Two tied eigth notes:
