Best Option for Tabs, Hands Down.


I've been subscribing to Songsterr for years. They are the ONLY place I consistently find perfect transcriptions to any obscure song I can think of. For me this app is one of those examples of how our lives are better today than they were 10, 20 years ago.

Update: I've been using other apps to slow music down but the slow to 15% speed feature is here and practice just got simpler. Nice job.

Worth it!

I would give it 5 stars if there were bass tabs for all of the songs I look up but I doubt any app would have that. Most are on here however. Sometimes the tabs aren't completely accurate but close which still helps decipher the notes. It’s good to get an ear for the notes anyway. And it’s computerized and sounds like it so you’ll want to eventually play with the actual music once you’ve learned the song on here.

Great app, keeps getting better!

I use this app all the time. The database is being updated constantly and is chock full of great tunes. The MIDI playback has great tones and is easy to watch as the tabs scroll by. I like learning a tune and then using the drum tabs ( if available) on solo for timekeeping. Would recommend to a friend for sure :)
