How does BrassTabs work?
Traditional notation gives performers all the information they need - pitch, duration and directions. Tablature, most commonly seen in guitar tabs, shows players where to physically place the fingers, without showing note duration or pitch. This means players must use their ears to absorb the song, and then follow the tab to play along.
This is the fundamental idea behind BrassTabs. It removes the barriers to reading notation when players are still learning the basic techniques of buzzing and blowing. It helps musicians who are starting out or rediscovering their instrument to focus on placement and getting to grips with harmonics. It also encourages players to listen and learn.
BrassTabs allows musicians to focus on the technique and have fun with the music.
