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.

A chord {x 0 2 2 2 0} chord
D chord {x x 0 2 3 2} chord
E chord {0 2 2 1 0 0} chord
A7 chord {x 0 2 0 2 0} chord
Bm chord {x 2 4 4 3 2} chord
C#m chord {x 4 6 6 5 4} chord

[verse]
(A)              Bm
Took a trip on a houseboat.
                    A
It was fun- you and me
                        Bm
I know you're really in love with him.
                   A
Are you up to your knees?


[chorus]
                   C#m
Oh I'm always in decline.
                   Bm
Always changing my lines.
                   C#m
Always changing my mind.
                  A      E    A
To be a friend is fine.


[verse]
(A)                     Bm
I won't go sinking this houseboat.
                A
It's so hard to believe
                     Bm
He made you smile so easy,
               A
So make a smile for me.

[chorus]
                   C#m
Will I always be denied?
                       Bm
I thought about it last night.
                   C#m
Could we, baby, honey, try
                     A      E
To put it right this time?

D       E              A
Oh, how I've wanted to change-
D               E                 A      A7
Let you take me home, let you rearrange
         D       E             D                E
To find opportunity you should give yourself to me.
           D        E       A
You should give yourself to me.
