This is a great trainer Fretsource. Thanks. I have no idea how difficult or easy this might be, but is it possible to have a lefty version??? I'm hoping its a matter of a simple 're-arrange button' you have tucked up your sleeve somewhere? :tomato:

I did a quick Google search but didn't find a Tab/fretboard combination tool other than yours (right or left-hand).

I don't actually see the problem, Carol. Lefties read tab the same as righties. The bottom tab line is the string nearest your chin whether you play it right or left handed. If it was a layout of the fretboard, I could see your point as the frets would all be at the wrong end for you, but it's just the strings that are shown and the frets are shown as numbers.
Anyway, I'm glad 6 string's mirror solution worked for you. Just be careful not to read fret 18 as fret 81 :winkthumb:

Ahem.......:surrender For some reason my head was seeing the tabs as a righty fretboard with the nut on the left while I tried to figure it out (turn it around) as a lefty fretboard :dunno: :blush: - don't ask why because I don't know!

As you say, tabs are the same for right and left, but somehow my brain got knotted thinking your demo was the fretboard...........(need more pills.) :winkthumb:
