Creating tabs by ear

Postby James » Wed Aug 25, 2010 7:06 am

I found some random middle eastern song and am wondering how you could make tabs from just hearing it?


Also on youtube is a video of a guy playing it:
I messaged him. He said he doesn't have the sheet music but does it all by ear.

(Apparent) chords:
Cm Gm Cm
C Gm Cm
Cm Gm7
D7 Cm
Ddim Cm Eb
Gm D7
Cm Gm Cm
C Gm Cm
Cm Gm7
D7 Cm
Ddim Cm Eb

G Cm G Cm
C#m Abm C#m
C# Abm C#m
Cm Abm C#
Eb D7 Cm
D7 Ddim Cm

Gm C Gm C x4

I got them from here: ... type=piano

What are tabs?

I have a feeling you are in the wrong place for this kind of question. This site is for classical music, not pop music, so most people here will have no idea what you are even talking about.

You should not be posting such a question here. Always look to see what a forum is about before posting, especially before asking help.
