Acoustic Tab Book 

I play Acoustic guitar to relax.  I also have a terrible memory and often have to look at the lyrics and chords when playing. I took many of my favorite acoustic songs and compiled them into a single book that I can pack in the guitar case when I go places.  I arranged it to minimize page turning by making most tabs a single page and having two-page tabs on opposite pages so you don’t have to turn the page.   


If you’re interested, I’ve uploaded the file and you can download it below.   


Please note: 

1.   The book is specifically arranged so that if you print it, (double-sided) most tabs take up a single page and the ones that take two pages will be on opposite pages.  There are two options I have used to print a hard copy:

  • Print the file (double-sided) and put it in a ½” 3-ring binder.
  • Go to and have them print it double sided, coil binding with clear vinyl cover and black vinyl back.  It makes a great compact book that lies flat when open and fits in a guitar case.  It will cost you about $21.



2.   The tabs and lyrics in this file have been pulled from multiple Internet sites.  Some have been modified by me, some I created – but many were just copied from various tab sites and formatted for the book.


3.   The tabs are NOT complete.  I made this book for me – not for public use.  Many riffs that I have memorized are not there or you may see some odd notation – it’s just a memory trigger for me.  Examples:

  •  Hey Hey (Clapton)– Just the lyrics are listed because I know the chords by heart.  Same with Tears in Heaven.  Sorry that may not help you much
  • Something (Harrison) – There is a riff that’s played in the start and finish.  I didn’t tab it out – I just play it.


4.   Yes I live in the past.  Most of the songs are old and mellow


5.   The book includes various interpretations of the included songs.  The best way to learn a tab song is to listen to the original recording and know the song before playing it.  This supports the artist who wrote the song.  You may only use this file for private study, scholarship, or research.  It may not be sold.


6.   If you have a question about a chord structure or need some other clarification – or just want to comment, feel free to send me an e-mail.
