Download the Tabledit and Tabrite software (it's free). One of those will allow you to print, can't remember which. Otherwise, look for the PDF or JPEG tabs.

TablEdit isn't free. But TEFview  is free.  Download it here

TabRite for PC is free. Download it here.  Scroll down the page to download the TabView viewing software of all you want to do is open tablature and not necessarily write your own.

If you have a Mac, don't bother downloading TabRite's TabView for Mac.  It hasn't worked for many many years.

Some tabs are posted in PDF format. You can open those with Acrobat Reader or any other software that reads PDF.  Some tabs are posted as ".txt" files, which you can open in a word processor or text editor.

There are a few other proprietary tablature formats that require either the same software the tabs were written with or the paid version of TablEdit, which can open several tab formats besides its own .TEF.

Good luck.

I find it easier (cheaper) to write tab on staff paper and take a picture of it.
