What in Gods name is piano tab?

Edit: Do you mean standard notation? If so I think musictheory.net can teach you that.

Ya there is no such thing as piano tab. Pianists are different from guitarists. All piano players know how to read standard notation, whereas most gutiarists cant. So they dont need tabs, they can sightread music. If you want to learn how to play piano, then learn how to read standard notation for piano, just like every other piano player.

There actually is, and it's one of the most hideous means of notation I have ever seen. It would likely be easier to just learn sheet music and have all the great benefits that come with it than trying to learn piano tab.
Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.

I too have seen 'tabs' for piano. They're absolutely disgusting. Sheet music, however, is the best way to go (especially for piano).

So what exactly is this piano tab? Really it makes no sense to why you would have one as every person that plays the piano can read sheet music. By this I mean the people who are good at piano. They have no need for tab because they can read standard notation like nothing.
