Musedit, Sibelius, GuitarPro, TablEdit
I'm taking a survey:

Which one of these tablature editors is the best?
Which ones do most of you use?
What do you recommend?

I personally use Sibelius G7 because of its guitar-orientated input. It's a powerful programme but does take a bit of time to learn.

Peace

None of them are 'best'

It really depends on what you are trying to achieve.

No offense intended, but it's a rather stupid question. Search around for yourself, here and elsewhere, read what you find, and ask again.

I've been using MusEdit for quite a few years now I can get the results I want and haven't felt the need to look else where, I certainly don't use all the programmes'features.
Doug Rodgers (the bloke behind MusEdit) has made many updates to the program and emails his customers when an update is available to down load. I don't know the current cost of the progamme, but I've had my moneys worth

If you search the Web, I think you'll find that the vast majority of serious guitarists attempting to produce accurate, useful tablature are using TablEdit. This is a good tool for several reasons: compatibility with others, power and flexibility and the ability to share your work with others in the form you created it, even when they havn't purchased TablEdit.

Other music programs have tablature capabilities but either are more expensive because they address a much wider range of scores or don't readily allow their formats to be shared. All the pros seem to use TableEdit for guitar tablature.

I use TablEdit for guitar and mountain dulcimer tab. Not a bad program and the price is more than reasonable. I also use it to import abc format flute/fiddle tunes and convert them to sheet music and midi files. Printing has its quirks, but they are all solveable, and the results are quite acceptable.

Maybe, but 'Easy Rider' didn't tell us what s/he wanted. It is difficult to recommend in such circumstances.

Point well taken, Ed. There are features that suit certain needs, and your advice to check them out based on individual needs is good sauce. But for overall compatibility and functionality it is very hard to beat tabledit.

Contrary to Ed's rather callous and offensive remark, there are NO stupid questions.

I'm a Blues/fingerstyle guitarist, and I fell into using TablEdit several years ago. I think it is a great program, but I've never tried to use the other programs, so I am curious as to what other people think of them. My main interest is to find out what program is the MOST popular, so that I can exchange sheet music with the most people. I've learned quite a few songs, by exchanging .tef files and ASCII TAB files, over the Internet, with nice folks like you, here on Mudcat.

The concensus seems to be TablEdit, so I'm satisfied.

I've never used TablEdit so can't comment though it apparently seems to do what it was designed to do very well.

I use Sibelius G7 mainly because I need to write musical scores for publishing and G7 is designed primarily for guitarists with either "virtual fretboard" or midi input. It also produces tabs which is a very useful side function.

Peace

Musedit is a very powerful program that can notate just about anything you can throw at it from the most simple to the most complex music.

From what I have seen on the web, Musedit can deal with more complex notation than Tabledit and produces better looking scores. Tabledit's plus points are the small size of the files and it is pretty good at playback for straightforward guitar music. However small file size is bought at a price and if you look carefully at some Tabledit files you will see notation errors - probably due to limitations in the program's handling of more complex notation areas. If you want polished looking scores then Musedit seems to offer more possibilities..........

Musedit can produce some very nice looking scores for any instrument or ensemble (up to 20 parts). It also allows you to notate songs with lyrics melody chords, band instruments etc.

Having tried the Sibelius G7 demo I'd say that Musedit is the better program when it comes to speed and ease of notation. An d it gives minute control over every aspect of score layout. Sibelius has a lot of flashy playback features, but IMO the notation is more important.

What a joke. You need a tab program to enhance your playing. Pathetic.

either learn to read music or consider using your ears.

Doc Watson sure didn't need a tab program.

I've used MusEdit for quite a while,Doug Rodgers (who developed the prog) has been very active in supporting the programme and providing up dates Also the programme runs happily on my aged computer
