Simple and lightweight application
Tab Writer is easy to install and to use, since all you need to do is open it, add the desired tab lines, then write the notes, lyrics or instructions. The application facilitates composing musical scores for the 6-string guitar and for the 4-string bass, since it allows you to add these two types of blank tabs.
You can easily switch from one instrument to another, from the Setup menu, at the top of the window. Next, you may add several tabs for the selected instrument, add dividers or insert blank spaces. Thus, the software allows you to insert your own notes, lyrics or instructions for interpretation.
Compose music and easily edit tabs
Tab Writer offers a series of text editing functions that you can find in most editors, such as Select All, copy, paste or save the score as a text file. Additionally, it automatically copies every new tab to the clipboard as you select the specific option.
The tabs feature 4 or 6 lines, corresponding to one of the strings on the actual instrument. The stave is filled with dashes that are automatically replaced by the chord/note as you type it. This way the text formatting is maintained. Once you have finished writing the score, you may easily save the file and print it straight from Tab Writer.
Tab Writer makes creating guitar scores much easier and simplifies the text editing. You may easily insert any number of tabs and write the chords/notes on them, by typing the letters. The dashes are automatically replaced, which means you do not need to worry about text formatting or aligning.
Tab Writer was created after hearing about people struggling while writing guitar and bass guitar tablature using a text editor.
This software is designed to easily write tablature for the guitar and bass guitar, and gives you the ability to save your tablature and to print it.
Tab Writer has an online help file, and is now available as a free download. We hope you enjoy using this software, and we are open to suggestions for additional features.
