    hi, i want to do a remix of a song but i can only find the music in tab form and i have no idea about playing guitar. can it be translated into score form? if anyone can manage this i would really appreciate it and will be willing to reward you with lots of samples. cheers

    heres an example... this is the bass riff from the White Stripes 7 Nation Army

    (this tab only has the notes, not the rhythm)


    e |-----------------
    B |-----------------
    G |-----------------
    D |-----5-----------
    A |-7-7---7-5-3--2--
    E |-----------------

    each letter represents one of the strings on the guitar, and the numbers represent the fret at which your finger would be....

    so the notes for the above tab would be.....

    E, E, G, E, D, C, B


    -----------

    just done a little searching and found this........

    put in the tab and it gives you a piano score!!
