In this paper, a system for the extraction of the tablature of guitar musical pieces using only the audio waveform is presented. The analysis of the inharmonicity relations between the fundamentals and the partials of the notes played is the main process that allows to estimate both the notes played and the string/fret combination that was used to produce that sound. A procedure to analyze chords will also be described. This procedure will also make use of the inharmonicity analysis to find the simultaneous string/fret combinations used to play each chord. The proposed method is suitable for any guitar type: classical, acoustic and electric guitars. The system performance has been evaluated on a series of guitar samples from the RWC instruments database and our own recordings.
