Blank Guitar Tab Template

Lesson #345 • Jan 9, 2021

Hey friends! A few of you have requested blank tab PDFs for you to download and print – and I’m happy to finally deliver the goods. What I have here is a 7-page PDF, each page featuring a common template for you to print and write up your tabs. Here’s the specific templates available within this PDF:

What’s in the PDF

This PDF is 7 pages total. When you look it over, you may notice that certain pages seem way more useful to you than others. For example, page 2 is probably the most versatile… but other times, you may want the timing included in a specific way. When you find a page you like, I suggest printing many copies of that specific page – just so you have them handy. Keep it close to your guitar, so they’re nearby when you need to jot something down. Enjoy!
