Field Report: Tabplate, an Inkplate-based E-paper Reader for Displaying Guitar Tablature.

File Browser

Tabs are added to Ttabplate via ASCII-formatted tab files stored on an SD card. You can organize collections into different directories, so I created a file browser to navigate between directories. {browse-big-dir}

Foot pedal

The tab rendering screens let you go forward and backward by short-pressing the left and right touchpads. However, when you’re playing you don’t want to take your hands off the guitar to go press a button, so I wired up a foot-pedal using a cheap USB pedal-switch I found online. You can find more pictures and code samples at the project site
