During the first COVID-19 lockdown my love to writing songs got reignited. It was stale for almost 10 years, but now having time and various string instruments at my hand I was pretty motivated. Soon I realised that not much improved during the last 10 years regarding guitar-notation software. Where can I write down my ideas, so I don't forget them? I used Tuxguitar. Mainly because I was too cheap to buy Guitar Pro. And also the latest version seemed too bloated with features I don't need. But I was not really satisfied with the workflow and user experience. This is when I started thinking about creating a new tool.
To me ease of use and quick feedback is most important. My instrument should be the main tool. The notation software is just there to keep my ideas. I want to be able to always access it. Independent of the device that happens to be next to me. And I want to be able to share ideas with fellow musicians easily. So a browser based app seemed most natural.
After various failed attempts here it finally is. An easy to use, free, browser based guitar tablature notation app: tabinator.com
