About Tony

Tony Clout with Strat in white studio

Tony Clout transcribes all of Tabman’s guitar tabs and bass tabs.  They are world-famous for their accuracy and help you to sound like the originals.  Tabman tabs have been around for over 25 years and they annotate exactly which notes to play as well as how to play them so that you can create your own accurate performance.  Tabman tabs combine music and chords and are each a complete guitar lesson.

If you want to play Apache  Foot Tapper, Kontiki etc. and sound like Hank Marvin this is where to find the most accurate transcribed tabs.

We produce the tabs for the popular Shadows Workout series by Ian McCutcheon and tabs for classic guitar instrumentals by The ShadowsJet HarrisThe VenturesDuane Eddy, and The Hunters.  New tabs are added frequently.

We also produce tabs for Dave Robinson’s “Lead” seriesErnie Lamprell’s “Strat Trax,” Roger Allcock’s “Backin’” series, and Warren Bennett’s “The Vibratos” (The Ghost of Old Compton StreetCappuccino Kid, etc.).
Tabman is now also producing audio tracks including special arrangements by Tony Clout in “Tabman Exclusives”, these include backing tracks and free demo tracks (and of course, tabs). These can all be bought separately or in discounted Bundles.

Other titles found in “Backing Tracks” are backing tracks only, to accompany tabs for The Shadows, Duane Eddy, The Ventures, Jet Harris, Bert Weedon etc. There will not be demo tracks for these as we assume you will be familiar with the tracks you want to play and will probably have the original recordings to refer to.
