Welcome to Whotabs
Welcome to Whotabs. Whotabs is dedicated to exploring the music of The Who and its members’ solo careers. Within this site you’ll find over 500 transcriptions for guitar, bass and drums, including guitar transcriptions for most every song released by The Who since 1964.

Also featured on Whotabs is Who Gear – The Who’s musical instruments & equipment, presenting work-in-progress references to the genre-defining musical instruments and gear the group employed (and destroyed) throughout their careers. Includes detailed analyis of the group’s guitars, bass guitars, drums, amplifiers, PA systems, and more.
