Guitar Notepad helps you easily and quickly jot down song ideas in guitar tab, save them to the cloud and email them to band mates.
I created this app as I found that when playing around with ideas on my own, or after a jam session, I was still using paper to jot down ideas. I have tried some of the other tab writing apps out there but none of them used the touch screen like a guitar fret board which really speeds things up. I'm keen to make this app as useful as possible so please feel free to contact me if you want any new features added.
Create and Edit Tab:
- Edit song details like title, artist, transcribed by and tempo

Ratings and Reviews
Simple to add power chords
I was looking for something like this and here it is! It's an easy to use application! Perfect! Looks pro!
Great little app for the price
A cool, easy to use tab editor for jotting down tab quickly. With a few enhancements this could be a great editor. Can't beat the price!
