Ftab means fortepiano tablature

That is easy way to play piano without any knowledge of music notation

This will help guitarists and beginners learn to play the piano

There are 3 base core (key) principles that describe ftab (vertical type):

1) The table consists of 12 columns in the sequence C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B(H) (like octave of the piano)

2) The sequence of lines corresponds to the sequence of keystrokes on the piano

3) One line displays the numbers (symbols) of octaves in the cells of the columns corresponding to the notes played at the same time

Other rules can be used or not:

+) One tablature field for each hand (2 tables of 12 columns are used for two hands)

+) «V» means a continuing note

+) Using scientific pitch notation

+) Columns corresponding to the black keys are highlighted in gray

+) Additional columns are placed on the side: Chord (Ch), Value (V), Dynamics (D), Pedal (P - L,C,R), Finger numbers (L,R), Part, Lyrics (L), Comment etc


The horizontal version is similar but rotated 90 degrees
