Product Description
Ultimate Guitar Tabs
Keep your favorite tabs in one place

Whether you're a full-time gigging musician or a late-night bedroom shredder, Ultimate Guitar Tabs is an incredible on-the-go tablature resource. This convenient app for your Android device gives you access to the world's largest database of tablature with a touch of your finger. Browse more than 300,000 listings for guitar, bass, and drum tabs--ranging across all styles of music and levels of difficulty--and learn new songs faster than ever.

A World of Music at Your Fingertips

Ultimate Guitar Tabs offers a mind-blowingly thorough catalog of guitar tablature in a package that's surprisingly easy to navigate. The home screen makes simple searches easy; additional tabs at the top of the screen open to reveal advanced search options, a place to keep your favorite tabs, and a useful "Tab Packs" section that organizes frequently-played songs into categories (such as Blues, Chart Busters, Rock and Metal, and Worship Music).

Find the Song You've Been Searching For

The quickest way to get started is by simply typing a keyword into the box on the app's home screen. If you're looking for a song by the singer-songwriter John Vanderslice, for example, just enter his name and touch the "Search" button. The app will immediately access every Vanderslice tab in the Ultimate Guitar Tabs database, and you can scroll through the song titles until you find what you want. If you know the song's title--even just part of it--type that in the box instead. A moment later, you'll see every title that includes the keywords you entered, and it'll be easy to narrow down your search from there.

Ultimate Guitar Tabs
Share great tabs with fellow musicians

If you want to conduct a more detailed search, touch the "Advanced" tab at the top of the screen. Enter any keywords in the main search box, and narrow your results more by opening dropdown menus that sort by Type (guitar, bass, drums, or chords), Part (an intro, for example, or a mid-song solo), Rating (based on a one- to five-star system), Difficulty, and Tuning (featuring a huge variety of possible guitar tunings).

See It, Play It, Share It

Once you find the song you want, just touch the title and its tab will appear onscreen. You can scroll throughout the page to whatever part you want to scrutinize and zoom in or out if the print is too large or small. The "Auto Scroll" function is a useful feature, as well; if you choose to enable it, the screen will automatically scroll down the page slowly, making it much easier for you to follow the tab as you play the song from beginning to end.

Of course, keeping a new song to yourself is only fun for so long. Show off the latest riff you've learned (or suggest a hot lick to a fellow musician) by sending a tab via e-mail. Just remember to give credit where credit is due; even if you learn to play a song perfectly, you didn't write it! Use this tremendous educational resource to stand on the shoulders of the masters as you learn to play your instrument even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never without tabs again. June 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
When people got tired of hearing me play "Wonderwall" and "Johnny Crack Corn" they'd ask, "Well, what *else* can you play?" And I couldn't answer them. NOW, with the UG app, I can pull out my Windows phone and find an endless amount of over-played radio songs for groups of people to sing along to while I weep quietly over my guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic July 15, 2012

This app is awesome. I haven't typed in a song with no results. One of the greatest things about it is you can access your favorites without internet connection.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOW TO ADD TO FAVORITES September 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
A lot of people including me have been having a terrible time trying to figure out how to add to favorites, i finally figured out that to add a song to favorites (Kindle) you press the little tab button on the bottom of your screen, then the icon between the arrow pointing left and the search feature, and select add to favorites.

I play piano, but I have always used Now I can use it on my tablet too! I got it using free Amazon coins that I got, but it would well be worth 3 bucks. Favorites work offline too!

2.0 out of 5 stars needs a lot of work April 18, 2014
By Patrick
Verified Purchase
This app is decent if you know exactly what you want to play, but if you just want to browse songs or artists there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. The random option is okay, but not very convenient. There needs to be a randomize button that you can continuously hit seeming as you have to shuffle through about fifty songs before you find something you want to play. Or have an option where you can shuffle a specific genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have. October 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
It's really simple to use and I've found a ton of tabs that I can use.
It would be nice if it had a few other features but considering I paid almost nothing for it, it really is a handy app.
