Manually transcribing guitar tablature from an audio recording is a difficult and time-consuming process, even for experienced guitarists. While several algorithms have been developed to automatically extract the notes occurring in an audio recording, and several algorithms have been developed to produce guitar tablature arrangements of notes occurring in a music score, no frameworks have been developed to facilitate the combination of these algorithms. This work presents a web-based guitar tablature transcription framework capable of generating guitar tablature arrangements directly from an audio recording. The implemented transcription framework, entitled Robotaba, facilitates the creation of web applications in which polyphonic transcription and guitar tablature arrangement algorithms can be embedded. Such a web application is implemented, resulting in a unified system that is capable of transcribing guitar tablature from a digital audio recording and displaying the resulting tablature in the web browser. The performance of the implemented polyphonic transcription and guitar tablature arrangement algorithms are evaluated using several metrics on a new dataset of manual transcriptions gathered from tablature websites.
