    Default Transcribing from sheet music to tab help

    Is there anyone out there in Mandolin world that has tabs to the first two parts of Drogheda Jig or is there someone who I could hire to do this ?
    I have the sheet music here https://tunearch.org/wiki/Drogheda_Jig_(The)
    But it might as well be Greek .
    It is a simple little jig that I heard Martin Hayes play , he said it was the first tune he ever learned .
    Thank you

    Not to reopen a debate which flairs up around here from time to time, but that would be a pretty straightforward tune to learn to read standard notation (aka Greek dots) on.

    I found the abc on abc notation so could make a tab for you from that. But possibly not for a few days as its a holiday weekend here.

    Thanks that’s a useful tool. Wouldn’t have been too much effort the other way - I was planning to let Tabledit do the hard work

    It looks like the problem may be solved but I would point out that TablEdit can read ABC files. Just cut and paste the ABC notation into a Notepad document, save it, rename it to show the ABC filename extension, then open it in TablEdit. I do that frequently.

    You can open musescore.org then load the program onto your computer (free) then paste or import the abc file, which is to be found on thesession.com

    Good luck
