How to play guitar tabs in Ubuntu!

Recently I was looking for a program that would help me to play tablatures in the computer. If you are using windows you can use PowerTab Editor but I couldn’t find a software compatible with Ubuntu. So I did a little research and I found this beautiful program called TuxGuitar.

I know there is a lot of Ubuntu users that play guitar and are looking for a program that would help you play those songs you love. Well TuxGuitar is an open source software program written in Java. It is a tablature editor, score writer and player targeted at guitarists. This program separates the instruments in different channels and displays a much more better visual way to see and learn tabs (it also display bass, acoustic, drums depending on the powertab), it supports this types of files TUXGUITAR, PTB, GP2, GP3, GP4, GP5.

Another cool thing about this program that believe or not it runs on Windows (Xp and Vista for sure) and Mac also so is multiplatform and is totally free.

Here is the link to download it if you dig it, enjoy fellow rockers!

And last but not least the best place to find PTB, PTB, GP2, GP3, GP4, GP5 is in the magic world of Tabs Compilations “have fun and keep on rockin”

  1. Chers

    thx for the article, tuxguitar version 1.2 can batch convert other files formats, so its possible to use tabledit, powertab and guitar pro files in tuxguitar. Also you can purchase guitar pro 6 for linux. More advanced than tuxguitar and very nice soundbanks.

  2. oh my goodness. thank you so much. i have a few guitar pro tabs that i need to read and you have just made my musical career that much easier- and cheaper!

  3. This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.

    Between your wit and your video, I was very nearly moved to get started on my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!)
    Great work.
