Thread: Chart For Tab Numbers and Musical Notes

    Default Chart For Tab Numbers and Musical Notes

    Last night I was searching the archives and came across a chart that someone had done for another member. It was a staff with the notes and under each note was the corresponding tab number. The staff represented the strings. Hope this makes sense. Well now I can't find it. Anyway with this chart you can take regular notation and convert it to tab. Thanks for any help.

    If you make your own chart you will learn a lot. The information is out there. It is how I started to learn to read music on the mandolin. It is not hard.

    No problem; if you do go about converting notation to tablature by hand using that, remember to take note of sharps/flats in the key signature and in the score itself. You can probably learn a great deal by doing this by hand, but I'd recommend eventually buying a program like TablEdit or something similar, which will do a great job of automatically creating TAB when you enter notation, or vice versa.

    I used that one recently, very convenient when learning standard notation

    Here's another method. Sort of half way but has it’s advantages too. It’s a bit more fretboard/chord oriented, can encourage you to learn the notes as letters further up the fretboard. I’ve seen it I think on German sites, if anyone has a couple of examples?

    as you can use the player to proof read you tune. That is, when you hear it played you can spot errors fairly easily even with very complicated manuscripts.
