    what is the best tab website for bass players.. i would like imput on what you all think is the best site...

    i like songsterr.com but i dont like how they have a flute ( or whatever ) for the vocals...

    guitar pro 6 don't like it would be any better than songsterr.com

    ultimate-guitar.com is just junk in my opinion...

    I do like you-tab.com , i do like it alot BUT BUT BUT, they dont have much of a choice for bass tabs .. i like how they play the actual song, with vocals, and top it off with the youtube video of the song, so you can actually play along with the ENTIRE song and not a flute playing the vocals...

    my quesiton is, does anyone know of a site that plays the actual songs with vocals and have the tabs as well ... something like you-tab.com ....

    thanks,

    Bubba

    Ultimate-guitar and songsterr are both good, provided you USE your ears to determine if something is a garbage tab or not, there are plenty of tabs on both that are copied directly from Guitar World bass tabs, so they are fairly accurate.
    But as with any tab you had better have a decent ear to know whether something is garbage or not.

    This is one of my, if not my very favorite learning tool at the moment. Provided you can kill the latency issues right out of the box, it's a solid tool. This game kicked my ass when I downloaded the Rush pack. :p

    A lot of fun. And you can show off to your friends with a real guitar rather than a plastic one.

    911 Tabs is no more accurate than any other site, because all it does is point to other sites like Ultimate-GUitar etc... its convenient but no more authentic.

    There is also a lot of disrepancy between the rating on 911Tabs and the actual tab rating on the specific site. For example, a tab might be on 911Tabs as a 4.8 (out of 5) but only a 3.67 on Ultimate Guitar (or whatever site it's linked to). I do use 911Tabs, but as you said, it is convenient and useful, but not necessarily correct.

    I personally use Ultimate-Guitar and if the tab is junk or if its not completely accurate, i can usually figure it out by ear as long as the tab gives me the basic idea. Or i just don't use tabs.
