TaB: Tastes Great, Less Filling!

I love that when I listen a song that I enjoy, I can search on the Internet and find guitar tablature so I can learn how to play it on my own. Of course, I could listen to the song over and over again to figure out the exact chords, but if there is an easier way, why not use it? Even though the Tabs are often in the wrong key, have misspelled lyrics, do not include time signatures, are very limited in the dynamics that are written (if any), the recording industry wants to take this away from us. Even if I wanted to find sheet music for most pieces, often it just does not exist. Here is an NPR story about this. If you find ways to fight for the right to keep tablature available, please post in the comments section! Thanks.

P.S. I changed the look of the site. Love it? Hate it? Let me know.

    I like the new look. Interesting colors and has a very unique feel to it.

    On the tablature issue, I could never figure out how they could even attack it, tablature is an interpretation by an individual, it is not the music as written by the artist.

    One of the best examples of this is Blackbird by the Beatles. I have seen at least 5 different versions of the tabs, it just depends on how someone plays it.
