- legal, authorized tablature downloads
- an easy-to-print format
- accurate tablature, unlike most unauthorized tab sources on the web
- full lyrics for each song
- the ability to listen to computer-simulated audio of all tablature
How to Use Musicnotes
After downloading and installing the free Musicnotes plug-in, users will be able to see a free one-page preview of any tablature they're considering purchasing. This preview page can be printed, as well as listened to via Musicnotes' tablature audio playback. This preview should give you the information you need to decide whether this is tablature worth paying for. For some, it may even provide enough information to begin learning the song on your own (see Learning to Transcribe Songs). Note: to access additional tabs on the Musicnotes site, users may have to also download the free Scorch plug-in.
