jTab Guitar Tab Shortcode

Description

jTab Guitar Tab Shortcode displays clean SVG graphics of guitar chords and tab on your WordPress blog, based on simple text notation entered into a WordPress shortcode.
This plugin is based on the excellent open-source jTab JavaScript library by Paul Gallagher (http://jtab.tardate.com). “jTab is a javascript-based library that renders notation using CSS and scalable vector graphics (SVG). It works in most modern browsers that support javascript, CSS and scalable vector graphics (SVG).”

I’d rather show than tell! To see plenty of examples, visit the shortcode plugin page at http://jtab-guitar-tab-shortcode.marichiba.com.
