Fingerstyle Transcriptions

About us

Through this service, we will manually transcribe a video recording of a guitar performance into an easily readable guitar tab for you. For the sake of accuracy, all transcriptions are done manually in Guitar Pro 7, without the use of automatic music transcription software.

1 voicing vs 2 voicings

Multiple voicings gives you a clearer indication of note length in the standard notation. It does not change how the tab portion of the sheet music is written. Here’s a comparison between 1 voicing (left) and 2 voicings (right) of the same piece.

“Transcription” vs “arrangement”

A “transcription” in music refers to written sheet music created based on a pre-existing music performance (eg. someone playing a guitar) while “arrangement” refers to a reconceptualization of a music piece (eg. a song you hear on the radio).

Rights to the sheet music

Fingerstyle Transcriptions does not claim any rights on the transcriptions made. If the transcription is for a piece you composed, the rights belong to you. If the transcription is for your arrangement of someone else’s song, ensure it is licensed and has the original artist’s permission before distributing it. We will also send the transcription to the arranger if this is the case. If the transcription is for someone else’s arrangement or composition, only use it for your personal use unless you have the arranger or composer’s permission to distribute it.
