Randy Tab will be a winner with the people, free and stable with a rapidly growing user base, which means lots of guitarists sharing tabs all round the world. Also the guys who created RT have recorded a cd named Undertow Layers with kick a-- guitar tracks to boot links to the soundfiles can be found at their site http://randyinc.allserve.net/
Suitable for all skill levels of guitarists
Features:
Randy Tab is perfect for creating great looking guitar tabs in seconds ...it loads fast and has never crashed my PC once. Midi export, and screen capture of tab window exported with html page (Instead of exporting tab to ascii which looks worse than ur grandmother in only underwear) would make randy tab the most quick and usefull of all tab editors.
Ease of Use:
Randy Tab is for everyone. Its just so simple and easy to use. The thing that sets Randy Inc's editor apart from the rest is its simple yet intuitive interface, I really love it when programmers think of the user and set things out in a simple way. I really feel Randy Inc will build on this strength and will have great success with future versions of RT, god knows I dont have the time to sit down and go through ten thousand chords/scales as some progs offer as thoughtfull add-ons to their programs...I dont give a stuff ...I just want to create great looking guitar tab..Ans Randy tab is perfect..

I use this software to store riffs, licks and tabs from the internet. After transcribing to randytab I can play the tab back to make sure I've transcribed it properly.

The software is intuitive to use, has never crashed and is very flexible.

Where Obtained: RandyTab Web Site
Features:
RandyTab is a well written windows type program. RandyTab includes a number of features that make creating tablature very easy. These include full undo of up to one hundred actions, cut/copy/paste, and both keyboard and mouse selection. It also includes a number of tablature symbols that allow the user to create a very wide variety of tablature, including: Hammer-ons and pull-offs Taps Trills Palm muting Bends (including pre-bends, bend releases, and hold-bends) Tremolo effects (vibrato and tremolo bar) Slides Muffled notes and ghost notes It also allows the tablature to be played back via a General MIDI compatible soundcard. Because guitar tablature does not normally indicate the rhythmic structure of the music transcribed, the user is able to assign specific intervals to the tablature in order to play it back in the desired manner. There are also a number of preferences that the user can change to format the tablature in different ways (i.e. the fonts, stave sizes etc). It is fully functional, and may be freely used and distributed (as long as it is not modified in any way).
Ease of Use:
I haven't tried any other tab authoring software so I have no basis for comparison with other products. It meets all my current (admittedly very basic)needs. Its is easy to install, easy to use with a very intuitiave interface.
