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.

Artist: The Judes
  Song: Bide Your Time


Intro - F, C, Dm, Dm7  x2

F         C             Dm  Dm7
Bide your time, take it easy

F             C              Dm  Dm7
Take what you need while you can

F             C                      Dm  Dm7
Tell her your feelings because she's leaving

F                C             Dm  Dm7
Don't spend your life a lonely man

F  C  Dm  Dm7

F           C            Dm  Dm7
I'm looking forward to a heartache

F          C               Dm  Dm7
At least I know I'm still alive

F          C               Dm  Dm7
Why are my pictures all so empty

F          C                  Dm  Dm7
And all my memories black and white

Bb C   D              Bb
Oh, it came without a warning

Bb C         F  
Oh, I didn't see

Bb C   D               Bb  
Oh,    look at me this morning

Bb C             F
Oh, just look at me

Verse 2:

Down the road and walking backwards
Growing older with the trees
Through the rain I'm only thinking on
An empty pathway with wasted dreams


Oh, it came without a warning
Oh, I didn't see
Oh, look at me this morning
Oh, just look at me
