Is there an online ABC to guitar tab converter?

I recently learned about the very handy tool http://mandolintab.net/abcconverter.php which converts ABC to mandolin or whistle tabs. Is there a similar one that provides guitar-tabs as well, preferrably online? I know tabledit can do the job, but an online tool would make things soo much easier…

tabledit does ABC to guitar tab? I may need to have a look at this. I am using EasyABC right now.

Anthroid, just for your information, tabledit does indeed convert ABC or dots to gutar TAB (and lots of other instruments). It also does it all the other way around and even converts into midi files, and you can write in your own stuff. I think it costs about $60. 00. I didn’t buy one because I play by ear and I’m too lazy to do it any other way, but I tried it out and I was tempeted. But anyhow, you can download a tial version and check it out for yourself.

I’ve used the demo mode for making guitar tabs from ABC’s you can also edit the tuning to whatever you use or want to try. It’s kind of clunky and limited, but it will make a tab very easily from an abc file.

Hi - I use Melody Assistant http://www.myriad-online.com/en/index.htm to convert ABC files to TAB for a mandolin. It covers almost all instuments in almost all tunings. I am pleased with the results - pretty fast to use once you get the hang of it. There is a charge - but it seems well worth it. I realise that I should really abandon tabs and play by ear - but difficult when you get in the "bad" habit of reading tabs! Let me know how yoy get on.
