8 thoughts on “How to Convert Guitar Chords to Piano + Tabs

  1. Wow, thank you! This is an awesome explanation of guitar tab on the piano. I am very jealous of guitar players because I can only do a few chords and very basic, slow guitar tab. I know it just takes practice, but I don’t seem to have enough diligence. I didn’t have a choice with piano; I was forced through 11 years of lessons. Still, I love the piano and I would love to take my favorite guitar songs and translate them over to the keys.

  2. Hi Andy,

    Is there any way you could help me transcribe the song:
    When I get my Hands on You- by: The New Basement Tapes
    I appreciate your explanation, but am finding myself really struggling with this process.
    Thank you for your consideration!

      1. Does anyone have a simple graphic chart that lists the guitar stings to the exact piano key location for each note?

        For an example, where are the corresponding keys on the piano for the 6 open stings of the guitar?

        Is there a chart for each string to each key?

        The guitar has higher notes as you go up the neck, so what keys would reflect the typical guitar notes on the entire neck if a guitar?

        I am not a piano player, I’m a guitarist, but I need to translate a melody to the piano for a vocalist.
