Hello

looking for good software for making tabs. I'm doing a lot of my arrangements these days and I'm ready to stop doing it with pencil and paper.

Thanks,

John

Are you looking for Windows or Mac OSX software?

Powertab gets the nod for Windows software

Powertab is OK but it's getting a bit long in the tooth. There hasn't been any development on it for probably 10 years.

As far as free stuff goes, I'd take a good look at tux guitar. Although the last release was a year ago, I think that there is far more chance that this will get an update before powertab.

The best, for my money, is Guitar Pro, but it isn't free.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

i like tuxguitar. It can import guitar pro tabs great. Doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but it's easy to use and FREE

Hey,

I use Guitar pro. it's quite simple, but it also allows you to add effects and dynamics to make it more "real". I use it as a general guidance to my material, don't really have the nerves to deal with all the options..
