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.

Capo 1:  Bm  G  D  A

Bm                G         D                 A
I have called you children, I have called you son.
Bm               G         D            A
What is there to answer if I'm the only one?
Bm               G         D                A
Morning comes in Paradise, morning comes in light.
Bm            G    D              A
Still I must obey, still I must invite.
            Bm         G               D           A
If there's anything to say, if there's anything to do,
           Bm        G            D            A
If there's any other way, I'll do anything for you.

I was dressed embarrassment.
I was dressed in wine.
If you had a part of me, will you take you're time?
Even if I come back, even if I die
Is there some idea to replace my life?
Like a father to impress;
Like a mother's mourning dress,
If you ever make a mess, I'll do anything for you

I have called you preacher; I have called you son.
If you have a father or if you haven't one,
I'll do anything for you. I did everything for you
