Can anyone translate sheet music to tabs?

Hi. Is there anyone out there who can translate sheet music to tabs? I'm a novice, but I've been asked to play with some friends in a jazz band and all they have is the sheet music.

You can use guitarpro to do that actually. You can enter sheet music by clicking notes and it will automatically change it to tabs. It's however not difficult to learn by yourself. Just learn which note is which.

This should help you:


The picture in the top right shows the correspondence between marks on sheet music and the note represented.

You could also search for a tab of your song here, or if not here, through another tab site (ultimate guitar, 911). I think there is a text link to 911tabs on the homepage here. Another place to look is the online sheet music sites (sheetmusicdirect). Sometimes they will have both sheet music and tab for a song.

Hello Jeffpeimer,
You can start with the basics, try to read about the treble clef, and other signs in music. It is better that one should begin understanding each music signs. I hope this will help you.

Well, it is a 1975 bootleg version of ELP's “Karn Evil 9”, turned into a 45 minute jam, from a heavily played Maxell UR120 cassette tape, being played on a early-80's Sony Walkman with dirty/magnetized heads, using a $3 pair of headphones with the foam worn off, so it's bound to take a while…
