Whenever I use the Automatic Tablature plug-in for guitar or bass (have not tried others) the notes on the tab
come out an octave lower than they are on the staff. I thought, maybe I needed to use the "proper" clefs, with
joined 8's underneath, but that moved the tab notes down 2 octaves.

How can I fix this?

Jeffery:

Are the strings properly "tuned" in the Tablature? When I do TAB, I just play the notes so that they appear correctly on the treble staff—for example, I play the open 6th string as the E below middle C on the keyboard—and the TAB numbers end up where they should be.

Cheers.

When people started writing guitar music
hundreds of years ago, they could have spared us
some confusion by adopting the grand staff, but
they didn't. So now we have a legacy of music
written on a treble clef one octave above where it
sounds. You will find some music written in the
treble-tenor clef (treble with 8 below), but it's not
necessary. It is understood that guitar is a
transposing instrument, and most guitarists who
read treble clef won't think concert pitch. Some
people who send me guitar music tell me they use
the treble-tenor clef because they want to hear
Finale playback in the right octave.
