That's what I have in mind. Don't want to enter the same piece of music
twice.(i.e. what note should be transferred to
(G_8 clef, no transposition)
Convert chord (g, b, d ) to guitar tab:


Very simple, isn't it? Choose the best of 13 possibilities,
and this has only 3 notes and no doubling. And I left
out one possibility, and maybe I missed some more.

The choice is fingering, which is art, not science.
There are many programs which autogenerate tab, none
good. It is far easier to enter the data than to
clean up the mess.

You want to give the string before the fret in
the tab data and not after, since the fret depends on
the string.

And the problems are far worse with instruments
that have a less rational tuning than guitar.

Bless you. Press on! :-)
