The Tab Store is the most exciting feature in this game. Use your Booms and download a tab for a song you have. Remember, you have to have the song already in your library to play the corresponding tab you downloaded. Boom Shake can support unlimited songs through this way.
The Tab Store supports various purchasing mechanisms including top played / newly listed list and search functions. Do search for a song you have and download a pre-configured tab.
Go to Play menu and select the tab you just downloaded. Another selection window will appear if your tab doesn’t exactly match the song you have. Select a song from the list or select a song from your library.
While playing the game, if you feel the timing isn’t best fit or it is off the beats, go to the game menu and select Adjust Timing to adjust the song you have. That way, you can manage to adjust the tab timing for your song.

When you are uploading your tabs, just make sure to make a tab that is valuable to others. You’ll see the list of such quality requirements when saving the tab. Also, uploading tabs will require you to submit the game play of the tab to ensure that you check your own tab.
