TAB Sites

Justinguitar.com Links Index

I highly recommend getting into Transcribing - using your own ears to work out the chords. But when you start out it can be helpful to get some clues from tab sites and get a rough idea about what is going on (or if there is a funny tuning or something like that!) before you get started.

Accuracy can vary a huge amount, some tabs are very accurate, some are just completely wrong, like not even close, so don't forget to USE YOUR EARS!

Free and good...

These are some sites that I think are a bit above the rest.

Songsterr
Good selection of tabs (over 21,000 at time of writing) with a player. very cool.

Tabcrawler
Slightly over complicated tabsite but you'll find all the tabs you need there .

Artist Specific TAB sites

There are some sites on the interweb that have tabs for a specific artist - I find these ones are usually more accurate than just the random tab sites, because they are usually done by people that love the music.

Elliot Smith
Sweet Adeline has lots of info on tunings and chords and tabs for solos and stuff. Very comprehensive, but accuracy varies between tabs.

John Mayer Tabs
Each of John's albums has been tabbed with some of the tabs in video/audio format.

Jimi Hendrix
Some of Hendrix's albums tabbed.
