I don't know about producing tabs but I have tried a program called AudioScore Lite which will produce notation when used with Sibelius. I never had any success with it one reason being that it has difficulty when the recording you are trying to transcribe has been made with numerous different instruments. I think the answer is, if you are listening to a band or singer, is to memorise the tune then play it. I can usually play anything I know but trying to get the timing accurate to write down the notation I find almost impossible. I suppose if I practiced it more I would become better but it is not exactly something I enjoy doing. There is something to be said for a school teacher standing over you cracking a whip!
Well, if you can play by ear, that should make it fairly easy to put down on paper.
Write the note names from the harmonica holes to paper, then decide how long they should be, whilst playing from what you have written.
Nothing worthwhile ever comes easily.
