You can use this function to move the notes up or down a semitone. This can be useful if you key a tune in, and it would be easier to play a bit lower or higher on different strings.
However, the Transpose function will only transpose single notes (no chords) and it will not transpose notes that have been altered using the manual update (unless updated to another actual note). For example a numeric position will transpose, but a slide (3_4) will not. Any notes which are not transposed will be shown with a *
Other notes which will not transpose are notes which fall out of range (too high or low).
Labels will not be transposed.
We would recommend you save before transposing. iPads in particular sometimes have a problem while redrawing the notation - we are trying to resolve this
The tab creator was designed as a tool to work out little ditties by keying the tune in, rather than a complete tab of a song. However, use it how you like.
Using the tab creator is quite simple. You can just use the piano keyboard to key in the notes. If you prefer you can use the Uke Fret board, and also select chords.
When you add a note, you will see a Note Options box appear. Here you can select an alternative position, and also manually configure what is shown on the strings. For example, if you wanted to slide from fret 5 to 7, you could enter 5_7 and then press Apply (if you don't press Apply, your changes will not be made.
There are also two labels you can configure (top and bottom). You can enter what you like here and then press Apply.
There are buttons for separation lines and to move to the next stave and to delete a note
You can select any note (using your mouse) to reconfigure it. If you have selected a note, the next note you add will be immediately after the selected note.
You can print a tab without logging in, but if you don't log in and save you will lose it when you move away from the page. You can login/register without leaving the page - the login/register will open within the current page
