Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Guitar2Tabs is your #1 platform for guitar music transcription. We help musicians of all skill levels to learn and compose the music they love. Easy. Fast. Accurate (about 85%). With Guitar2Tabs you get the tabs for the music in your fingers.

This is a web-based application and you don’t need to install anything on your PC. Just upload a file, wait 2-5 minutes and your song should be ready to download.

After a song transcription, you will get 4 outputs: unquantized MIDI file, quantized MIDI file, MusicXML file, and PDF file.

This issue might occur in different situations:

1. If you are using youtube link. Some youtube videos might get stuck due to youtube transfer issues. It is advisable to use file upload form instead of youtube. Files will be processed faster and you won’t see unexpected errors from youtube. If you are stuck in this stage, please get this song from other source (like amazon store) and upload it via our file upload form.
2. If you are using file upload form, please refresh the page and go to “My Files” section. Your file might be already converted and ready to be downloaded. If not, please try again. File upload might have failed or your network connection broke during the process.
3. Always check if you have a steady network connection, because uploading large files might take some time. If it fails, just try again.

If your file does not appear in “My Files” section after an hour, please contact us

Our algorithm works differently on every song. On some songs, the transcription is perfect, in others there might be a few little mistakes. In that case, you can use a music editing software like MuseScore .
Because of this, we made our service free for converting 30 seconds of any song. Please make sure song quality is satisfactory before buying a full version.

For unregistered users, files are stored for 30 days after a transcription. Please download them before this period, or they will be deleted without recovery.

Your song should be shorter than 15 minutes and size should not exceed 100mb, due to technical limits.
