CBG Tabs

So you built your CBG and now you need something to play on it, right? Well, if you're not completely musically inclined or can't read traditional music, tabs are your answer. If you're like me, you read tabs and sometimes make them. Paste'em here.

Remember...

Tabs here is as a learning tool -- NOT for profit.

I'll also upload some blank tab sheets. Just let me know what you think and if I need to add anything.

Thanks Al that's a very useful bit of kit, probably the most comprehensive open G chord chart that I have ever seen...exquisitely organized as well. Nice work!

@Frank Scott are the G strings on your 4 string the same pitch or is one lower that the other?

Way at the top of the page, there’s a box that says “Search cigar box nation”, this is the key to a wealth of information & the answer to your questions? :D

Can you direct me to your blank tab sheets? Also, do you have any chord shapes for 4 string CBG? Thank you for any help..

Does anyone have any 4 string tabs or chord shapes with tuning in GDGB?  Thanks for any info.
