What is Tab Difficulty?

There is a really cool option on our website - The tab's difficulty filter.
So, if you want to play "
Stairway to heaven" but you're not a Jimmy Page yet choose the "Beginner".  Feeling more confident? Go on to "Intermediate". If you think you're that good choose "Advanced". In short, the higher difficultly level you choose, the more detailed the tab you'll get.

When you're about to submit your own tab don't forget that you should state the Tab's difficulty and not the difficulty of the song itself. Make sure to estimate your tab's difficulty objectively. No offence pal, but during the first few months you're unlikely to come up with something extremely hard.
  • Beginner - perfect for beginner. Simple riff, unpretentious solo and etc. Tabs which are indeed not complicated.
  • Intermediate - We're mixing things up a bit here. Detailed tune's parts - intro, solo, chorus, outro. Don't mess with these tabs if you have no idea what the following words mean - hammer ons, pull offs, arpeggio, palm muting, pinch harmonics and etc.The perfect example for this difficulty level is "Stairway to heaven"
  • Advanced - It will be freaking hard. These are complicated and highly detailed pieces. Tapping, tapping with both hands, speed soloing and more hardcore madness. Will your delicate fingers be ready to take on the hellish cords? 
Remember that it's not strictly necessary to state the tab's difficulty when you're submitting a tab. If you're unsure it's better to sumbit a tab with no difficulty level. We don't mind.
