Thread: Good mandolin tab sites

    Default Good mandolin tab sites

    Hi I've been self-instructing the mandolin for a while now and I have been looking for some great mandolin tab sites. The tabs I would be looking for would be for bands like radioed, and the Beatles. I have also been looking for a Tab to Iron and Wine's tree by the river, if anyone knows where to find these I would be very grateful to them.

    Hi Nico, i'm new here too, so welcome. If you haven't already, check out youtube for radiohead mandolin videos, you may find them useful. Think there's a lesson for creep on there. Good luck.

    Hey everyone. I'm a first-time poster, long-time lurker. I know I have had a lot of problems finding certain songs that I'd like to play on mandolin, especially if there is not a mandolin in the original arrangement. Something that I have found extremely useful is Guitar Pro 5. You can get a trial version online for free, or buy a full version for a small fee. Then, you can go to various tab sites (like Ultimate-Guitar.com) and download arrangements that open in the Guitar Pro software. You can then go to the individual guitar track, click the bold type that will say 'Guitar 1' or 'Guitar 2'. Then, change the number of strings from 6 to 4, and under the tuning option to 'Mandolin Standard Tuning.' It will then present a dialog box saying 'Do you want to transpose to the new tuning?'. Click 'Yes'. I know this may seem like a lengthy process, but it is totally worth it. I have used this for several songs (like 'No Rain' by Blind Melon) and it worked well. It may not work for all songs, but for the ones that do work, it is great. Hope this helps, and I'm glad to be part of the forum.

    I tried to download the trial version to give it a try (Guitar Pro 6) and it keeps giving me an error that there is a corrupted file near the beginning of the installation.

    If you get a corrupted file error, try deleting the temp file or d/l install file and re-download it. Make sure it's from a legit site and not a bootleg version.
