Tab Mapper

The tab mapper is a handy little tool that will render a guitar tab file with graphic chord diagrams displayed alongside. This comes in handy for people who just don't have every single chord shape memorized. Just plug in the web site address of a valid .tab or .crd file and hit "Go". In general, the tab mapper does a better job with printer friendly URLs. If there is more than one way to play a chord, the tab mapper will choose the most common shape. To see other fingerings, click on the chord diagram and you will be taken to the chord calculator.

you bruise like a cherry my darling girl
D               Bm         G            A
words they mean nothing to some in this world

a freckle appeared on your lip from the sun
D                   Bm              G       A
those kids that you hang with, they put you down
        D     A  G  D7
