  • Easily search and download Guitar Pro tab files directly from Songsterr with lightning speed!
  • Enter a song artist and/or title to search for and the results will be displayed.
  • Select the song (or multiple songs in Plus version) you are interested in.
  • At this point, you can either choose to download the selected tab(s) or you can also choose to view the tab page(s) on the Songsterr website (Plus version) which can be handy for ensuring it is the correct song or simply to look it over before deciding to download the tab.
  • Another way you can use Tab Grabber is as a companion for when you are browsing the Songsterr site directly. If you find a tab that you would like to download, you can easily copy & paste the tab’s URL into Tab Grabber and click the appropriate button to download the tab. This saves you several steps from doing it manually from the tab’s page on Songsterr.
  • Plus version: As an alternative to copy & pasting the tab’s URL, you can simply drag the URL from your browser’s URL box into the Tab Grabber window. If a valid tab page is detected, it will automatically download the tab file featured on that page without having to click any extra buttons.
  • All downloaded tabs are placed into the “Downloaded Tabs” folder and will use “Artist – Song Title.gpX” formatting for the saved filenames.
  • Test drive it for free for 7 days with the free trial license!

Why download Guitar Pro tab files?

Songsterr is great for a quick online practice session, and especially with their mobile versions. It got me started on learning bass after playing drums for over 30 years. I do still use it occasionally but my preferred method these days is using a great app called Go PlayAlong. In fact, if I’m to be honest, Go PlayAlong got me so hooked on learning new songs that it was a huge inspiration for what would become Tab Grabber! As they say, necessity is the mother of invention, and knowing how to invent (program, in this case) has its benefits! 😉

What’s great about GPA is that it allows you to sync up a Guitar Pro tab file with an MP3 of the actual song! It does this automatically but in some cases some manual tweaking is required. On a side note, this often reveals flaws in the tabs such as missing or extra bars, wrong notes, etc. But hey, it’s better than nothing, and if you also have the Guitar Pro (or the free TuxGuitar) software then you can edit them and fix the flaws then sync it up again in GPA.

I really can’t say enough about Go PlayAlong! It truly was a game changer for me and after I began using it to play along to the actual songs perfectly synced with the tab, my ability to play more and more songs skyrocketed. Still had to put hours and hours and hours of practice in, but it’s amazing what playing along to the real song can do, and especially when the tab file is synced right up to it!

For more info, see the Go PlayAlong and Guitar Pro web sites. For a free and open source alternative to Guitar Pro, check out TuxGuitar.
