MY TABs - DOWNLOADs


All of the acoustic guitar Tablature shown below is in TablEdit format. This program, which allows you to input tablature for many stringed and other acoustic instruments and to print it out, as well as play it through your computer's speakers and to export it as a Midi File, can be obtained in Demo form for free at TablEdit. This demo will allow you to play back TablEdit tab files; and you can now download in excess of 6,000 tunes in this format from the TablEdit library site. Registration details for the full version of the software can be found at the site. Do have a look at the TablEdit Demo, it will let you play and see the tablatures; the software is excellent. Please do play the midi files and/or download the TablEdit tablature for any of the tunes below, have fun playing them and let me know what you think - . You will need the full TablEdit program, or the new free TefView (See below) program, to be able to print these tablature downloads. Cheers and keep on pluckin'. 

Note: Due to the Netscape browser having difficulties downloading some file types, including the TablEdit (.tef) Tablature files, I have included all of the tune files in ".zip" format as well. Netscape users please download the zipped (.zip) tablature files to your hard-disk by holding down the 'Shift' key on your keyboard as you click on the 'Download' in the Zipped Tab column below. Then use 7-Zip, WinZipPKZip, or a similar program, to unpack the files on your hard-drive. Internet Explorer (IE) users can continue to download the TablEdit ".tef" format tablature files as normal. All tunes updated as at 01/01/2014.

Should anyone feel like putting up videos of their playing of these tunes on YouTube then please do feel free to do so. It would be appreciated if you could acknowledge myself (Steve J.

Many thanks for your order. I will attempt to keep adding new tablature arrangements to the above list as time allows. Please do come back for more and for another look and play when you can. Tell your friends and guitar playing colleagues. Thank you.



Tablature:

Tablature is an excellent way in which to put guitar compositions and arrangements onto paper for learning and teaching purposes, and also to enable you to remember tunes from one year to the next, a definite factor if a tune isn't played for a year or two, especially as one gets a little older. But, why is tab so good ?? 

It is an excellent medium because it shows exactly where to place your fingers to find the notes and these finger placements are often the best way to find the notes to make the movement of your fretting hand the easiest and simplest as well as the most economical and efficient. One of the major complaints about tablature used to be that it didn't show any timing value so you had to have heard the tune first before you could use the 'finger-map' of the tablature to play it. This is true NO MORE !! The newer software programs for computers allow you to enter tablature and have the timing printed along with the tab. Some, such as TablEdit, will even play back the tablature for you on the computer so that you can hear how the tune goes before you attempt to play it. Tablature usage has never been easier or more approachable. 

One of the other major advantages of tablature is in the use of altered and open tunings on the guitar. Using normal/conventional music notation, every time you change the tuning on your guitar you then have to re-learn the notes on the fingerboard to be able to find them when they are being read from the dots on the printed page. Tablature is no different no matter what the tuning; it still shows the fret numbers which show where you are to put your fingers of your fretting hand (left for most of us!) onto the guitar neck/fretboard. A real advantage !! 

Have a go with the tablature. Download TablEdit from the site as shown above (it is free in a Demo form, and there is also a free file viewer called TefView available from the TablEdit website, both of which which will play all of the more than 6,000 tabs on the site, including all those shown here), and try for yourself. Some tunes are for advanced players but a lot are for beginners, or intermediate players. If you have never played before, give it a try - if you painted by numbers when you were a kid, you can play guitar, after a bit of effort and practice, from numbers now !!

 Good luck and have fun !!



A few simple / easy tunes are provided below for absolute beginners. Please do not try to rush these tunes - if you are just starting out you need to take things slowly and make sure you have got it right. Firstly, work through the tune by sight and work out the chords that are needed; mark them in on the tablature, in pencil, above where the changes occur. TablEdit (or the 'free' TefView) helps in this respect as it can play the tablature for you over your computer speakers so that you can hear how the tune goes and where the chords change before you try to play it on your guitar. Then, later, you can play along with it. This is a big help - Good luck ! Have fun !!
