Only tablature app I have ever liked

This is the easiest tab program I have ever used. There is no nonsense about having a score along with it. Why does every other tab program try to get you to write out music notation with your tabs. It tabs, we don’t want all that crap.

There is just one thing I would like with this app. Make it available on the desktop. I often want to tab out what I recorded but and would preferred to just my computer I am already sitting at recording with, then in my phone.

Thank you! It really means a lot to get reviews like this.

Also - there is a Mac app! Search for Guitar Tab Maker in the Mac App Store… and email me if you have any feedback -

Finally! A simple tab creator that has custom tunings. I play lap steel and use many tunings. Learning steel is still a one-on-one, watch me and repeat kind of process. The Hawaiians just show you what they do- and then you ‘chance ‘em’. They rarely write it out. It’s handed down person to person and in families. Hard to teach playing with ‘aloha’, you just have to listen. Kinda like learning old Appalachian fiddle tunes in different hollers. Works for me!


Guitar Tab Maker App

This is a great tool - the best one I’ve come across for my needs which is archiving tabs for ukulele and slack key guitar. I’ll never discard my hard copies but having everything on my ipad is alot easier than carrying binders. My wish list for this tool is to be able to sort the tab list ... don’t know if this feature is available because I wasn’t able to find it in the documentation. Otherwise this would be a five star rating.

You can search but no sorting at the moment. I’ll consider adding it in a future update. Thanks!
