Guitar Music & Tabs

The songs on this page were mostly arranged by me for fingerstyle guitar. There are a few traditional classical songs that are not my arrangements. The songs here are in three different formats so that most players will be able to view them through one program or another. You will need one or the programs in order to view the songs.
Power Tab is a a great program that displays, enters, edits and prints songs in both standard musical notation and tablature. It is easy to use, and best of all it is free. You can click on the logo below and download the program free. There are thousands of songs posted on the net in this format.
Guitar pro is a similar program. Although it does cost for the program, it is not expensive and easily worth the money and more. It will import Power Tab songs and Tabledit songs. Please support these fine programmers and pay for the program. It will give you many years of use and pleasure. Thousands of songs are posted on the net in this format. It is a program all serious guitar players should have. Below is the link where you may download the program.

Tabledit is another get tool for musicians who want to enter, edit, view or print music. It also displays and prints in either notation or tablature or both together. It is in the same class with the other programs listed above. I own and recommend all three. Tabledit is also very reasonably priced and worth every penny. It also has the ability to open Tabrite files or Power Tab files. Please support the fine job these programmers do. It makes life easier and better for us musicians. You can find this program by clicking the link below.

If you just want to view the files but have no interest in editing them. There is a free viewer for the Tabledit files available here. ( I do recommend the full version rather than just the viewer.)

Now for the songs. Click the format to the right of the song you wish to download and enjoy!

Please Read This First!

Because I have had so many e-mails complaining about difficulty opening these files, I would like to try give you the solution before you e-mail me. Many people comment that they double click on the file and only get a bunch of nonsense squares and lines. Not all browsers understand a TEF or GP5 or PTB extentions, and therefore try to open the file using notepad. This results in some unreadable nonsense. Sometimes the browser understands the extension if the program was installed after the user started using the particular browser. Even on my own computer, I use Firefox and I can't open the files online. With Windows Explorer I have no trouble opening them online. But without changing browsers, there is an easy solution to this problem. Simply right-click on the file and tell your computer to save the file to a location on your hard drive. Then open the file with the appropriate program (Powertab, GuitarPro, Tabledit or Tefview.) Also, once it is on your hard drive, it is possible to double-click on the file from "My Computer" or "Windows Explorer" since the computer does recognize these extensions. This should solve the problem. 

You might also note that many of the songs are only offered in TEF format. The songs I posted earlier were entered using Powertab and converted to Guitarpro and Tabledit. I found a number of bugs in the Powertab program and no sign of a fix for several years, so I switched to Tabledit. I love the program and highly recommend it. My recently posted songs are only in TEF format. 

Another point concerns the level of difficulty. These songs were all arranged for my students over a period of 40 years of teaching, so they are on a variety of levels. It has been suggested that I label each with their level of difficulty. As of this time I have not. The level of difficulty is often a matter of personal opinion. If you like a particular tune, give it a try. If it is too difficult, save it for a later time in your musical career.  Enjoy the arrangements. Feel free to contact me with comments or requests. I am retired now and will take the time to answer you.
