This thread was created in 2009. It still hasn't happened yet?
Come on, Tabnabber. Get on this. Can't be too hard to write the opposite of the guitar-piano converter's program, right?

It wouldn't be too hard to create a [crappy] piano to guitar converter. But IF we're going to do this converter, we want to do it right. A couple of details need to be worked out in order for this to be a decent converter. Like...

-How do you determine the best strings a particular note (and series of notes) should fall on?

-What do we do with tabs that go lower than the pitch range of a guitar? (lower e string 0 = piano's 2|e)

-What do we do with tabs that play more than 6 simultaneous notes (chords) at once?

Once we get these details worked out, we'll be ready to create it!

@Proper - being fashionably late is kind of my thing. There doesn't seem to be much demand for this and the previously posted questions haven't had any suggestions for solutions.
C'mon you guitar playing slackers, how bad do you really want this?

Perhaps, it is easier to find guitar tabs than piano tabs :)
but if a song doesn't have a guitar tab, you can convert the chords into tabs rather..

Hi BA I'm here to resurrect the dead!!! Actually someone else is breathing new life into this thread with the following:

RELATED: https://tabnabber.com/FORUM2/display_message.a...

And now to give you my 2 cents on possible solutions to 2 of your questions:

-What do we do with tabs that go lower than the pitch range of a guitar? (lower e string 0 = piano's 2|e)
Option 1: ignore the note (prob easier to do but not ideal)
Option 2: raise (or lower) the note's octave to the nearest valid octave (keeping in mind the note could be higher than the guitar range too).

-What do we do with tabs that play more than 6 simultaneous notes (chords) at once?
You pianists with all your ten fingers. This has got to be rare for pianists to play more than 6 notes at once no? Even if it isn't, you could just ignore any extra notes that come in beyond 6.

As for your hardest question - (How to determine the best string for a note), I don't have an answer but I think you have to observe the notes before, during and after to find the most optimal fret, perhaps this is more of an art than a science tho?
