    Dont know if there is one already or if it is pssible or not, but i think a app which shows you the tabs of a song while it is playing would be amazing

    Anyone?

    The app is already built in to your ipod.
    if you are on 1.1.3 or 1.1.4 add the tab as lyrics in itunes and then play the song and tap on the screen and the tabs will be displayed as the song plays. but it would be good if it scrolls it self as it plays.

    To add lyrics you right click on the the song in itunes and click on 'GET INFO' the click on lyrics and paste the lyric or tabs in there the add the song again to ur ipod. And here is a guide to read tab click here
    And to get tab just search the song name in google followed by the word tabs.
    E.G. " enter sandman tabs"

    hope i helped thanks

    Isn't that like, impossible unless it's a MIDI file? or something. Maybe a visualization mod or the Album Cover changes picture corresponding to the chords being played (via time)

    it could work like the app "TuneWiki" the lyric are synced to the song but insted the tabs are synced to the song . but not as you play the note or chord .
