"Knowledge only has true value when it's shared"
Welcome to my tab archive! here you will find some really superb tabs created by some great people who have been kind enough to share their work and make it available here on my website. I'm truly thankful and honored to have these guys on board because without them this tab archive would be rather anorexic. So I extend my thanks to them all.... Thanks guys.
Most of these Tabs are best suited to intermediate rather than beginner level pickers and some are advanced. I started out by presenting the tabs in various formats, i.e. TABrite, TablEdit, bitmap, gif in Zip files. Now, I am only adding tabs in TablEdit format. The tunes are also included as MIDI files with bass line and chord backup. This page will grow as I get around to working out and adding more tabs. The Tefview tablature viewer is now available as freeware. Tefview will allow you to view, listen to and print tablature in .tef (TablEdit) format. To download your great free viewer click on the icon below - Download size: 171K
Tef. file viewer, midi player, print tef. files
(Click on the icon to go to the Tefview download page)
The tabs in this archive are zipped so you will need Winzip installed on your system to decompress the files. To download a tab, simply left click on the title of the tune. A Download Dialogbox will pop up. Select Save. Next, choose a directory where you wish to save the file to and click Save. Download will begin. To view and play tabs in tef format you will need either Tabledit or Tefview. To download Tabledit, follow the link on the Links page. Save your zip files and Tefview to a directory of your choice (example, create a folder on your Desktop and name it TefTabs. unzip the files, start Tefview and click File/Open, then navigate to the tabs you've just unzipped. Click on a tab and then click Open. The tab will load. Use the Play button to hear the midi file of the tab

Xavier Baron's Tabs
Xavier has kindly consented to share these tabs which he has painstakingly transcribed from the CD "Deliverance" as recorded by Eric Weissberg and tabbed using TablEdit. There are also tabs transcribed from the CD, "Banjo Express" by a French band of the same name and tunes from other various recorded sources. All these tabs are accurate transcriptions in tef. format [TablEdit] and, if available - in TABrite format (bjo) with accompanying MIDI files. The tabs are in zip files for you to download but you will need Winzip to decompress the files. These tabs are distributed as 'E-Mailware'.
