Songsterr - Online Guitar Tab Player

Big thanks goes to all the users, who gave us valueable feedback on proof of concept version released 4 months ago. It really helped us choose the future of Songsterr.

New version of Songsterr is an online guitar tab player that solves the biggest problem of guitar tabs. Tabs do not have information on the rhythm or lengths of the notes – only on their pitch. It can be very difficult to get a feel of the music simply by studying the tab without playing it through. With Songsterr you can see and hear the song as it is being played with a realistic guitar engine, thus you can get an idea of what it should sound like and how fast it should be played.

Once you've found the song you want to learn, you just listen and follow along the music. No need to know staff notation or listen to the original song recording multiple times. We have over 50 popular songs in the first release and will add new songs every day.

Our plans for the nearest future:
  • chord boxes;
  • lyrics;
  • selection looping;
  • slowed-down playback;
  • support of more guitar effects (slides, bends, pull offs, hummer ons, etc);
  • electric guitar sound engine;
  • support for more instruments;
  • upload of tabs by user.
Thanks in advance for further feedback, feature requests, and critics.

Stay tuned!

What happened to the White Tee's song? I found your site and I love it! I was shocked to see more than five songs on it. Now it's amazing! I love to play along with it. Thanks for working so hard to make this site terrific and very useful. I tell all my friends about it. Are you going to have the first songs back on there?

Thank you ! I love the new release !

Would it be possible to expand the view of the sheet to see more than 2 lines ?

Maybe a fullscreen option using flash fullscreen mode ? :)

You mentioned adding other instruments. I am learning to play the bass guitar. Are you considering adding bass guitar tabs?

@robert and zi guan & steven noble:

Support for bass tabs was added yesterday along with a bunch of other new features (mixer, print, multitrack, electric guitar, fullscreen, etc). Check out this blog post for more info: http://blog.songsterr.com/2008/09/new-songsterr-features-mixer-electric.html

There aren't many songs with bass tabs for now, but we'll be adding more on a regular basis. Right now you can check out bass tabs of these songs:

Click mixer and then click the bass tab. All the new songs will be multitrack and will have bass tabs.

Thanks for your feedback and for using Songsterr!
