is a program for creating, editing, printing and listening to tablature and sheet music (standard notation) for guitar and other fretted, stringed instruments.
was originally written by a guitarist, for guitarists, the author consults extensively with experts on other instruments. Because of this, TablEdit
also supports tablature and standard notation for harmonica, mountain dulcimer, diatonic accordion, drums, violin, lute, tin whistle, recorder and banjo (even taking into consideration the special aspect of the fifth string).
can open/import ASCII, MIDI, ABC, Bucket O' Tab, Tabestry and Wayne Cripps files, as well as files created by earlier versions of TablEdit
. Files can be saved in TablEdit
format or exported to ASCII, ABC or MIDI formats.
I retired from the entertainment industry in 1994 and my hobby of computers became my profession... Feeling the need for a hobby to "get away from work" I took up guitar and purchased my first left handed guitar, a '68 reissue Strat. I later became involved with helping Matthieu Leschemelle with TablEdit
and the rest is, as they say, history.
