    I'm seeking recommendations for TAB software from folks who have hands-on experience with whatever currently available. Thx.

    I really like Rocksmith 2014. It's not tab per se, but it works the same and is really easy to pick up on

    After using tab for close to 30 years, I've discovered that the lessons/transcriptions on youtube are much easier for me to use to learn songs. And it's free.

    There used to be a windows version. I'll bet there still is. Tux is the best "free" one I ever used but that was a few years ago before I moved to linux for 90% of my needs.

    I use Ultimate guitar tabs and guitar pro 6. I use riff master for songs with no tabs.

    This would be for transcribing my own tunes......on a chromebook.........I don't mind paper and pencil for standard notation, just don't want to write TAB by hand.

    I use Microsoft Word and made a template full of tab bars. Use the font courier new and the spacing doesn't get mixed up because all the characters take up the same space then. Then just fill it in.

    Check out Musescore. Not geared towards Tab specifically, but it will do it. And...it's free. I use it all the time to make stuff for lessons. Turns out great looking stuff.
