Tablatures is a tablature editor for Mac OS X.

Tablatures is compatible with the popular PowerTab, a well-known and widely adopted tablature editor for Windows systems. Thus you can share your music even with those members of your band that don't own a Mac! Moreover, you can easily find thousands of song transcriptions in this format on the net. Tablatures can also import most GuitarPro 3-5 tabs and (since v2.6) GuitarPro 6 tabs in the .gpx format.

The tabs you create can be exported in MIDI format and during playback you can follow the tab on screen to make it easier to learn tracks.

If you don't need to compose music or edit PTB files, you might wish to take a look at TabView, Tablatures' little brother.

Future Tablatures updates will be released on the Mac App Store only, requiring an Intel Mac with OS X 10.6 or later. Licenses for the 1.x series won't work with the new 2.x releases.

If you cannot (or wish not to) access the Mac App Store, you'll still be able to download and buy version 1.41, though it won't be upgradable:
