HI, everyone, my beloved wife was a member of your site for years but has not been able to participate for half a decade because of a medical issue. I am asking this question for her at her request. She has composed numerous songs during the years she could not join in the delights of this site, and she would like to know how to create tablature for them so she does not forget how to play them (if I am stating that correctly). Sadly, I am not a musician and know little about the guitar except how to string one. (I have learned that by helping her.) Are there places on this site that discuss such things so I could print them out for her? Or are there other sites that would be useful? Or perhaps even books that are not too involved that could help her create tablature for her own songs? She can READ tabs fine but does not know how to create them; and she believes there are some useful pieces of information that, if known, would help her learn to do this more rapidly. My wife plays quite well and has a Taylor koa guitar. She does not read sheet music, something I learned to do in choir. Thanks so much for any help you can offer us!!!
Hello, this looks like a great forum!
I was watching a video talking about a cool Fela Kuti song called Water Get No Enemy. It is in a style called Afrobeat and is generally chordaly very simple but with amazing grooves.
The chords to the song are just Fm7 and Ebm7 and I think the key is Ebm (?). The guy in the video says this is a iii - ii progression. However while I understand the degrees of a scale why is Fm7 a iii and Ebm7 a ii as surely Eb is the i (tonic) and F is the ii diminished in Eb minor scale? So why in this case is the Eb iii and the F not a diminished chord but a m7?
This is the tune by the way, the chords I am talking about kick in about 1.17 into the song.
Video I made to show how to easily change between the E D A chords. Minimal finger movement is the key. Your first finger never leaves the 3rd string when changing between all 3 chords. All it does is slide between the first and second fret. The other fingers move minimally between strings.
I have a blog where I discuss music theory, and I’d like to show guitar fingerings when visitors mouse over certain notes (similar to what Ultimate-Guitar does with its songs - http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/bob_marley/no_woman_no_cry_crd.htm).
I can create each chord from scratch as an image, but this is very time consuming.
Is there any open source or commercial software that allows this? I’d especially like one that includes sounds and inversions.
My site is on Wordpress.
