How Learn-Able Tabs Teach You In A Quick, Entertaining Way
When I first started playing guitar, I struggled for a while with Classical notation.
I'm a creative mind, and for some reason I just don't click too well with all the notes and rhythms they give you.
And then something happened. What happened was...
...I discovered Tablature!
If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.
His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.
It was amazing. It was like someone invented a musical language just for me! It just clicked with me.
And ever since then I've devoured the world of Tablature. I went out and bought the program Guitar Pro and started writing all of my music with it. The program is great for instruments like Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano, and most wind instruments.
And then after searching through other peoples tabs, I realized that lots of the music that I wanted to learn wasn't available anywhere on the internet.
At first, I was discouraged. I thought I wouldn't be able to learn the songs I wanted.
But then I decided that I would try and transcribe (write out) the songs by ear. I thought it would be a ton of work...
...Boy was I wrong! I fell in love with Transcribing music!
It's so much fun to just listen to all the little subtleties in music and write them down!
a while, a close friend of mine suggested that I put some of my tabs up
on this site. That way you guys wouldn't have to spend the countless hours I spent transcribing them yourself!
You might say "But what if I can't read Tablature?" Well then I guess I will have to make a lesson for you won't I?
You can take a look at what I have so far though, just below. And
yes, there is a cost. And I really want to make it worth your time to
buy my tabs (I'm only charging because it takes me SO much time to
So I have decided that I will throw in some "Time Savers" for you, to help you learn the tabs easier.
My main goal is to share all the great music I know with the world. And I want you to learn it too!
Take a look at these extra time-savers that I will give you with every purchase!

This is the most basic form of the song. On it contains the song lyrics,
and markers for the structure of the song.

take this compact sheet with you that you can use as a reference (If you

little reminder of the Song Structure and lyrics? That is where this
sheet comes in handy.

the sounds of multiple instruments when listening to your song.

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
